Story

Can't stop making stuff
Introduction
Born in England, lived in France and now in Canada. I am a wood turner sculptor,custom furniture maker and musician - the melodeon is my instrument. See my website in the links section which features my turned work as well as product photography,  I have a great love of music with a particular appreciation of English traditional song and dance music, but with very eclectic taste. You will almost always hear music playing when you come into my workshop, studio or house.

I am a a founder member of the Google+ Create Program created by Google for creative people.
Bragging rights
I once had Valerie Singleton round for tea and biscuits (Blue Peter star, for those who don't know).

Ellie's beautiful fuchsia!
 
For Sheer Joy

This image of a single fuchsia represents for me the distilled joy and the beauty of flowers, in particular the delicacy and transience of each bloom of the fuchsia in its short life. It reminds me of a bird taking off and of a ballerina with arms raised gracefully, about to leap into the air in the arms of her partner. It seems to radiate the sheer joy of living and life.

I hope you enjoy it and it helps to make your weekend joyful and bright! It is another in my series of multiple exposure floral images.

These multiple exposures are all on my gallery on my website here: http://elliekennard.ca/ekgallery/when-life-is-a-blur/ and the post is also on my site: http://www.elliekennard.ca/sheerjoy/

The View on the Way Down from the Lion's Head Cliffs

The waters of Georgian Bay in Ontario are an extraordinary colour as you can see from this photograph. Apparently they change back to 'regular' lake water colour once they become Lake Huron around the top of the Peninsula. This was taken from the top of the cliffs at Lion's Head. This is a beautiful area of the country and I hope to get back there one day to see more of the sights that I have apparently missed but have been told about by commenters on my previous post.

Before the Bungee Jump

Our trip to Ontario this spring included a stay on an inlet off Georgian Bay and on one occasion we went on a walk with a climb up through a wood to the top of a cliff overlooking the amazing and unique colours of Georgian Bay itself. Note the absence of handrails (and the presence of rings in the rock for those who climb up the cliff from the shore). It might not look it, but it was a long way down.

It was a tranquil scene unless you suffer from vertigo.

+Ellie Kennard You were braver than me - I wouldn't have gone anywhere near the edge and probably would have got slightly hysterical that Keith was. As you can guess, I'm very bad with heights!

Take the Next Exit (If You Can Find It)
One of those images where you get to decide what you want it to be!

Driving home from a city at night* is a great way to get some very interesting photographs, if you are prepared to experiment and play. This was actually taken at dusk and the colours are the result of the pink glow on the skyline, the car lights and the various signs as they were lit by the traffic.

These multiple exposures are all on my gallery on my website (in a larger size, too) here: http://elliekennard.ca/ekgallery/when-life-is-a-blur/ and the post is also on my site: http://www.elliekennard.ca/nextexit/

*I was a passenger, I should add before I am flooded with horrified comments about how unsafe this practice would be if I were at the wheel.

Thanks Linda! It was inverted, as if it went from a positive to a negative. So all the light colours were originally dark etc. +Linda Jess​

Cowgirl

Cows are such curious creatures and this one was the first to come to check us out as we photographed the herd in Ontario. She hasn't even finished the grass you see sticking out of her mouth. I guess she was making sure we weren't going to be a threat to her calf and the rest of the herd.

Cat on a Walk

When we left our car in the parking lot to hike up the trail to the top of the cliffs in yesterday's post, we had to walk a short way along the road and past some houses. As we went by this particular property, this affectionate little cat came out as if to welcome us.

Night Time Bandits

I have to thank my photo scout, Joni, the Border Collie, for finding me these little models last night. And also my lighting assistant, +Ellie Kennard for holding the flashlight. These two poor little kits were immobilized by the barking of my scout and their mother was nowhere to be seen. I can only assume that they were reunited in the night (and lived happily ever after) as in the morning they were nowhere to be seen.
