New Shots Posted...

The Sand & Shells photo's were posted last night. They can be found in the 'Photo Art' category. There are also some new photo's in the 'Nature' category.

Please send me a note telling me what you think. I welcome suggestions on how I might have shot them differently too.

Thanks for taking the time to view them!

Sand and Shells Project...almost done...

Well, Elizabeth and I started out a week or so ago by lugging sand back home from Toronto's Cherry Beach. After a few test shots, we decided this stuff wasn't for us. So... Off to the Garden Centre - and this time lugging 2, 20kg bags of "Play Sand" home - alone! *Grunt!* I have to admit it's a lot better looking than what we started with.

Shown here are the 'setup' and finished shots of one of the shells we're shooting this week (thanks to Elizabeth's sister and brother-in-law for loaning this fragile beauty). Some shots are assortments, as well as some driftwood and other odds & sods. This is all being done on our plastic-covered antique dining table - which sits above Elizabeth's prized Oriental rug! Hey, don't look at me - this was all HER idea!!

The finished shots will be posted to my web site ( over the next day or so. Please check them out and let me know what you think?

Enjoy the sun!
