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"

Saturday Morning ...


My time, time to wander a trail, a street, a path strewn with woodland detritus, a sidewalk or just sit and catch up with friends.

This Saturday morning was a bit of everything, I met up with Doug in downtown Guelph and we decided to walk wherever our fancy took us, all the time nattering about this and that, catching up, making plans etc.

Before long several hours had passed and we found ourselves at the Farmers Market wandering, people watching and buying a few things.

Then back to the cars to unload our goodies and camera's then on to OX for tea.
Just tea .. no more goodies as we had stuffed ourselves on the walk back from the market!

Even so just tea, talk and camaraderie, what a great way to spend a Saturday morning.

Friendship is a sheltering tree”. ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge
