Queen's Square Farmer's Market - Sept 11 2011

I attended the Queens Square Farmer's Market a couple of week-ends ago with the idea of photographing people. The sun was strong and the shadows were deep. When I got home I decided to work most of my pictures in black and white. I had my 70 - 200 mm lens on and as such I had to stand way back in order to get the picture I wanted. I kept an eye on the crowd but a few of my shots caught the accidental head or face of a passerby. All part of the fun shooting in crowds. The place was packed and looks like it was a success. Cameras were everywhere and I am sure somewhere there is a picture or two of me residing on a hard drive or on Facebook. I hope they took it of my best side...


I have been trying lately to take pictures now and then that clearly convey to you the viewer what I am feeling when I release the shutter. I know that is a difficult task but for me that is how I want to present some, but not all, of my photography.

I still will be taking many more pictures that just show off the local beauty where I live and with fall rapidly approaching the photo opportunities are endless. Feelings will be in some of those picture as well. Stay tuned for fall colors 2011.

We took the grand-kids to Alma and Fundy National Park last week-end. I snapped a few panoramic pictures too.

Meenan's Cove as seen through a spider web

I was snapping pictures of different cobwebs yesterday morning at Meenan's Cove and decided to try something a little different.

Specs, 1/125", F22, ISO 560, 34mm. I had to keep the shutter speed up as there was a breeze moving the web. F22 was chosen to give a reasonable depth of field. Handheld.

Hurricane Irene - Near St Martins N. B.

I drove around the St Martins area at high tide Monday afternoon to capture some wave action after the passing of Irene the day before. Here are a few of the images I took. More will be posted later as I have a lot of images to sort through.
