Originally from Northern England, Alan Norsworthy has been a photographer since the late 1960's.

He moved to Canada in 1973 and has made Guelph Ontario his home for the last 24 years.

" I remember visiting the CN Tower in the early 70's and the guide said that as far as you could see in any direction is the best farmland in Canada. That comment echoes down the years as I watch subdivisions eat up the landscape."

The area around Guelph offers up a plethora of rural images which Alan captures with his artistic vision. His work covers everything from macro photographs of flowers, sweeping landscapes, historic buildings and old abandoned farms in both colour and Black and White.

"This is where I find my inspiration, I have a need to show people the beauty I see as I walk the woods and fields of Southern Ontario"

Toronto Surprise

Yesterday we (the Three Amigo’s) traveled to Toronto to take in the Contact Festival but it was the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) that stole the show.

Not only does this structure contain so much beauty but the building itself is beautiful.

You may think of me as the wanderer in nature, he who holds nothing but disdain for the world of concrete and steel of the 'man-made' especially when it is 'modern' ..

But yesterday, I learned there can be beauty there, you just have to open your eyes and look.

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” ~Confucius
