Tuesdays of Texture – January 24, 2017

“Icy Shell”

“Ice contains no future , just the past, sealed away. As if they’re alive, everything in the world is sealed up inside, clear and distinct. Ice can preserve all kinds of things that way- cleanly, clearly. That’s the essence of ice, the role it plays.”
― Haruki Murakami

The image I chose for today was made a few days ago, as I hiked through a local conservation area. I came across a log which was coated with a thick layer of ice. The temperature was just above freezing, which caused a thin film of water to form on the ice. What really interested me was looking at the ice itself and being able to see the individual ice crystals, each a miniature lens to view the wood beneath the ice.

Tuesdays of Texture – Week 2, 2017

“Study in Wood #6”

Here’s my contribution for this week’s  Tuesdays of Texture  over at de monte y mar.

Another image of a log, a part of my ongoing wood studies series, the log’s surface stripped bare by the elements, a light patina of moss forming on the smooth surface, as hemlock needles accumulate in a hollow. The blend of texture and colours make it appear, to me, like an abstract painting.

Tuesdays of Texture – Week 2, 2017

“Study in Wood #7”

Here’s my contribution for this week’s  Tuesdays of Texture  over at de monte y mar.

This is just one of a growing series of studies I have done by photographing trees and logs. There is infinite variation in colour and texture. I’ve walked past this log more times than I can count and nearly always stop to look at it, as it slowly decays. This particular day, the light was just right to showcase the varying textures.

Thursday Doors – December 22, 2016

“Notre Dame Cathedral Doors” - Montreal

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

The grand doors of Notre Dame Cathedral in Montreal. As in the case of many popular locations, I had to wait a while till there was nobody entering or exiting via these front doors.

It does always surprise me, when I review my photos of things I think I know well, all the details my brain seems to filter out. Things like the chains to hold the doors open, the light recesses in the floor just to the sides of the door, and those annoying spike to keep pigeons away from the ledge above the door. I hope you enjoy losing yourself in the details as well.

 

Tuesdays of Texture

Tuesdays of Texture is a really awesome weekly feature.  You can read about it over here; but the short version is I want to see a bit of your world so link up your post in the comments!Study in Wood #3

A simple post today. One of my Studies in Wood photos from earlier in the year. This is Number Three. I believe I have posted six of them on my blog. More to follow.

Yet another door for beautiful Germain Street in Saint John, New Brunswick. I loved these ornate, yet somewhat weather worn doors. If you look at the Street View, you’ll see the neighbour has painted theirs. A vast improvement, in my opinion, though I do like the look of natural wood.

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

Yet another return to the University of Toronto and its doors. Today, I have chosen a peculiar doorway to Trinity College. Though it’s difficult to show the scale on the photo, the doorway is quite short, only about five feet tall. I’m not sure what the significance is, perhaps it forces you to bow on entering?

This portion of the building is a more recent addition, as indicated by the cornerstone, though it still had the same wonderful architecture as the main building it was added to.

Once again, this day offered me superb natural light which shone from the stones, illumination the wonderful oak doors.
