Stuart McLean - A Canadian Literary Treasure

I just heard the sad news of the death of Stuart McLean. I had the pleasure of meeting him and his crew and photographing his show in 2009 at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium. The video I made of the photographs is accompanied by one of his best loved stories, as told by Stuart himself. It's a very funny story and typical of Stuart's wonderful story telling talent. He was a Canadian literary treasure who will be sorely missed.

North Sea Gull

The skies over the North Sea are often dramatic and the gulls love to soar in the wind.

Sunset Over the Deben

On our first day in Suffolk we were reminded of the beautiful sunsets that so often occur in this county. This is the River Deben, seen from Woodbridge in late November.

Sleeping Elsie

I have few words for this photograph. My little granddaughter, Elsie looks so peaceful sleeping that I couldn't help myself wanting to capture this beautiful moment.

Gannet Rock with Gannets

Gannet rock is a beautiful natural habitat for these wonderful birds. As you can see here, they spill over into the cliffs around, where they breed. I could have spent all day here.

Gannets on the Cliffs By Gannet Rock

Although I only had one day to spend in New Zealand sightseeing, thanks to my new found friend Tref, I managed to get to see far more than I would have on my own.

Storm Building off Muriwai Beach, New Zealand
New Collection of My Trip to New Zealand

This new collection will feature my photographs taken of my trip to New Zealand, short as it was. I hope you enjoy looking through my lens at this beautiful country with me.

The woodturning symposium in New Zealand where I was demonstrating finished on a Sunday and my flight wasn't until Tuesday night. Thanks to the kindness of one of the attendees, Tref Roberts, I got to experience as much of the beauty of this country as was possible in one day. I had a whirlwind sightseeing tour of the area, where it was Spring time and the weather was very dramatic and changeable, which only intensified the experience on this unforgettable day. I will have a gallery of my images taken on that day on my website and here is the first, on the shore of the beautiful North island.

The first day of my arrival in New Zealand (or was it the -1 day of my arrival, as I lost a Monday in there somewhere?) I thought I would take a little stroll around the neighbourhood and see where I was. I looked up on this roof and saw what looked like a flat stuffed animal lying on this roof. As I got a little closer to it to get a better look it moved its head and stared at me.
This character seemed amazed to see a Pom walking down his street! He was relaxing in the hot sun of this lovely Spring morning. He had to be the first thing I photographed on my trip.

Portrait of Ellie

As I get ready to go to New Zealand I thought I would post a photograph I took of my beautiful wife, Ellie, who won't be able to go with me on my trip. It's a long journey, but I won't be away for many days, so this image of her will come with me. By chance, when I saw it, it reminded me a lot of a photograph taken of her when she was 18. When I saw that, I thought I would like to try to reproduce it. I'll have to wait for when I get back for that.
The original can be seen here: www.elliekennard.ca/half-here#original

We got a Russian vintage lens, the Helios 44-2 with adapter and this was taken with that lens.
