This page is intended to be used for sharing of the most recent adventures, and a staging area for images to ripen with the anticipation of being selected to one of the permanent portfolios. As a result, expect a mixture of subject matter and treatments as images come and go as part of this filtering process.
I've continued with impressionistic work (see Montages in the Odds&Sods folder) based here on images from Africa. Many of the animal portraits lend themselves to enrichment from texture overlays and such. The goal is to strengthen my attempts to convey more of what I felt (or how I feel) about the subject rather than only what I saw.
As with many people, my plans in 2020 were disrupted by the pandemic. I did try to keep busy shooting locally, and here are a variety of images taken from late August 2020 to whenever I've added the latest image. Each autumn there are always lots of geese stopping on the Ottawa River on their migration and we had almost a week of record warm weather with calm winds; it was a delight to be out early morning in these conditions.
