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"

A bunch of keys..


It was a rainy day …
So says the Pizzaville ad ;-)

Actually it has been a rainy weekend and as I write this I am drying off after a 2 mile walk with Winter, sitting by the patio door listening to the rain on the leaves and the odd call from the birds.

Quite peaceful really and in the words of Longfellow:

The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain”. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I was away on business for most of the week so the artistic / photographic output has been almost non-existent.
However I did manage a couple of sketches, I find it interesting if not amazing how a mundane object like a bunch of keys can take on a life of its own on paper.

Keys never looked so good, Alan. Glad you're weathering (pun intended) the rain and that you're getting it and not us [GD&R] --- Larry
