So…. It’s been ages since I posted anything. This place started as a way for me pour out some of what was inside me out into the world (yeah, that sounded as weird when I typed it as I’m sure it sounds reading it.)
Loads and loads of the posts are my photography, and that remains a huge passion in my life, but this passed year, I’ve been drawing. A lot. I don’t claim a particular talent for it, but I’m really really enjoying the process of learning how to do it better.
So, this winter, I started doodling some snowmen, and it occurred to me that snowmen are a pretty limited bunch. I joked and chatted about this with some of my students (I work in a high school). From there, the drawings that follow were born.
The enigmatic snowman (snowperson). There are just so many things that they can’t do.
(if you love any of these drawings and think that you’d like one on a t-shirt, you’re in luck… https://goo.gl/a3EwU1
I dunno how I let this slide. Though I haven’t been out taking pictures much at all, I have taken some. Here are the efforts of 2017 thus far.
CFS Lac-St-Denis was decommissioned in 1986. The pictures barely convey just how big and empty this building is.
Along hwy 7, you can find Gibbs Gas, near Arden. I’m not sure it’s actually abandoned, so much as out of use. The hydro is still connected and someone still takes care of the lawn around it. It’s featured in a documentary called “Lost Highway.”
The gulls at North Beach Provincial Park.
These guys were so ready for their photo shoot today.
The bascule bridge in Smiths Falls. Great location and an excellent sunset.
The kid took me to a path, by the queensway, that she uses to get to the mall. Figured it would be a great place to shoot some long exposure stuff. We had a great conversation about why the lights streak in these pictures and she helped me capture the ghost-dad picture.
