It’s Magic!

It’s Magic!

This photo was taken of my newly married daughter and her husband a couple of years ago. You can tell it was taken with a Leica rangefinder by its unique glow and the capture of the electricity of young love. I think soul mates call it magic – at least in the women’s movies I watch with my favourite and only wife. I finally got around to processing the image and I am delighted with the emotion captured. Ashley and Tony – I...

Shark Bait

I have decided to get back to my blog after a lengthy absence due to a number of reasons. This picture was taken after walking more than 10,000 steps along the ocean front in Qualicum Beach. I have taken very few pictures this year due to being very busy but have started to get back out. I am years overdue on doing adequate levels of exercise so have started to change habits and get out walking. Having a camera with me provides a bit a...
