We have a good crop of chipmunks and squirrels in the backyard this year. The squirrel though it would be fun to chase the chipmunk but Chippy was way to quick

I have been exploring different ways to create new ways of seeing some of my pictures. I am very new at this so it is really a lot of fun to experiment and learn

Oxford Renaissance Festival 2016 series of artistic images.
I went to the festival and saw lots of interesting people and the all had different stories. I took lots of pictures but so did a lot of other photographers so there were lots of similar images.
I wanted to try something different so I have started to do some work and show my impressions

Blue Headed Vireo (Sibley Field Guide Birds Eastern North America page 278)
Tonight I was practicing with an Olympus 50-200mm F/2.8 on the Olympus EMD-5 mark 2 with a better beamer .
The birds were up high but I was really pleased with the results, this Vireo is my first. Backyard Dorchester Ontario.

I am a fan of rat rods, the wire, rivets, rust, welds and bullet holes all just work for me.

Today, I accomplished a once in a life time event as a photographer.
I have taken many many many shots in the past 10 years but today I got a defining image, a never to be repeated instant, never seen before and I did it.
I suspect I will be recognized internationally for this image and I will
have to reorganize my life to meet the demand.
I give you "Bee Pee"

I have a soft spot for horses and will take every opportunity to take pictures. This is a miniature horse named Fox and he was at the Kai Lee's Miniature Horse Ranch just outside of Ingersoll Ontario.
Fox was in the mare and foal paddock, he was showing off and stirring things up.

Yesterday I went to a miniature horse show and ended up taking pictures of babies, what a great time.

Introduction
"Get Low Move Slow" 
I am Canadian, retired, a hobby photographer, exploring many subjects. 
I love cats big and small, dogs too just not as much.

Olympus  Cameras - OM-D ME-5 camera with the Micro 12-50 lens
Olympus E-1 and E-3 with my main macro lens a Sigma 150 mm HSM f/2.8 macro. My general use lens are the 9-18 Olympus F3.5 and the 50-200 Olympus f:2.8. My tripod is a Manfrotto 055XPPro with a Manfrotto 488RC2 ballhead an acra clamp.

I use Adobe PhotoShop CS/6 and Nik plug-ins, mostly Viveza 2 and Color Efex Pro 4.0 and Zerene Stacker .
