Last week we rented a cottage in Meaford, a small town to the northwest of Toronto. It was a peaceful break from the noise and busyness of the city. We took two beautiful hikes on Trout Hollow Trail which felt wonderful since we haven't been on wooded trails since the beginning of the pandemic. Here's… Continue reading Vacation
It's late in 2016. Late afternoon today the sun came splashing its light across the room.
Recently we were travelling in the countryside in Ontario where we spent some time on Lake Kashagawigamog. On the grounds of what was once a resort, I sat on the screened-in porch of the former lodge, turned community centre. There, I felt transported back to David Milne's time. He was fresh on my mind after my last… Continue reading Milne on my Travels
I have loved this autumn. Last week, I was on the grounds of Todmorden Mills Heritage Site to see an art exhibit and enjoy the still colourful day before the more muted part of autumn arrived.

I'm enjoying photographing these interior scenes. I was drawn to the contrast of light and dark in this image and the shifting, somewhat fragmented view of the room in the mirror.
This broken bowl, a common object, caught my attention with its beauty. I was drawn to the reflections on the side of the ceramic, as well as the bowl's shapes. I used a black and white setting to emphasize these.
Yesterday, I walked through parts of the University of Toronto. In the midst of the city are places like this one that feel like sanctuaries to me. I took these photos at the Munk School of Global Affairs. I found the corridors beautiful and was interested in the patterns the late afternoon light made--the interplay… Continue reading Photographs of the University
