The Winter Photos 2022

The snow arrived every weekend but instead of leaving by Monday it turned to ice and then came back the next weekend. Bottom line, by March the snow was higher than my back fence and the deck had a solid foundation of Ice that only left last week.

Despite the in climate weather I managed to take photos once the streets were ploughed  then I could get on the road again.

The First Monthly Post for 2021

Needless to say I certainly hope that 2021 will be Better for all of us.

I have Plans for 2021 that will involve my Blog  www.waughsriver .com

I have every Photo negative, slide or digital phot file since my move England in 1969.

Unfortunately the photos that I took in the early sixties were lost. They included photos of many of  the Popular Musicians of that decade who went on to international fame.

C’est La Vie,  Life goes on.

On a more positive I have chosen 50  of my favorite photo images and hopefully my book

50 Years, 50 Photos,  50 Comments

will printed by Spring.

I will keep you posted.

Photos for December 2020

Amy's Farm-Painting22

Quiet Farm not far from my home. I cannot resist capturing  these images. It is a pity that Life on the Farm has changed. I remember my Grandmother’s small farm in Cape Breton and my own in Scotland some 45 years ago. A great way of Life but hard to make a living.

Barachois No. 22

Barrachois Harbour always provides a Landscape to capture.

Barachois Tree22

Reflection makes a great Image but also reminds us that Reflection is a good habit as well.
