KAP 2015-9 – Karen’s Place

Karen’s hobby farm. The main buildings and paddocks.

My sister, Karen, purchased a home/hobby farm in the country near Spencerville, Ontario this year. Karen owns one horse and currently boards 3 more.

After another long break from Kite Aerial Photography, again due to back issues, I went to my sister’s place for Thanksgiving and decided it was time to get out the kite gear. Having had back surgery this summer it was with some caution that I approached this task. I had my niece, Stephanie, by my side so I could hand over if I needed to. She also helped with setting up the kite and holding the line while I mounted the camera rig. Things went well as far as my back was concerned with squatting to assemble the kite being the most difficult task. It was a gusty day and there were tall trees in the direction I was flying. A few nose-dives had me sweating while taking flight recovery measures. The camera was swinging to and fro but in spite of this I came away with a few good images of Karen’s property.

“As Is” – Presenting my Foyer Gallery Exhibit

As mentioned in my previous post, I’m in the current show at Foyer Gallery: As Is. It continues until October 18th, 2015 and my work consists of photographs made in Havana, Cuba in 2014.

Each artist in the show has had a video prepared presenting their individual work. Mine turned out reasonable well, considering it was unscripted, unrehearsed and ‘almost’ one take.

Thanks go to Liana Voia for preparing the video.

Since my previous post I have sold one image and replaced it with a different Havana image.

View my 17 images in the show.

A selection of greeting cards and matted prints by several members is also available for purchase.

As Is runs from September 29 to October 18, 2015.

Check the Foyer Gallery website for full details of hours and location.

KAP 2015-1 – Lemieux Island, Ottawa

I have had a 16 month hiatus from kite aerial photography …. I’m happy to say “I’m Back”.

This first session of 2015 was actually a commission job and I’m not showing the client’s photos. The images I’ve put on my website are byproducts of the session resulting from the great location. Had there been time after the ‘job’ I would have done more shots of the bridge, the park and the Ottawa skyline. However, strong gusts kicked up that prevented me from doing more. Additional images from this session can be viewed on my website (link under the photograph).

The image here shows the Prince of Wales Railroad Bridge. There are two sections to the bridge. This is the section which goes from Lemieux Island at the bottom to the Quebec shore (Gatineau) to the left and top. The rail line runs approximately 200 metres on the eastern edge of the island and then there is a second section of bridge connecting the island to the Ontario shore (Ottawa). The bridge has been out of use for some time but is now under consideration as part of the developing LRT (Light Rail Transit) for the city.

Foyer Gallery – Schedule for 2015

I’m a member of the Foyer Gallery which is a group of 26 artists (9 of us are photographers). Exhibitions at the gallery roll over every three weeks with three types of shows. Most are Group Shows where each member has 2 to 4 pieces of work depending on size. Focus Shows have three or four of the members participating and each artist has 1/3 to 1/4 of the gallery space. Each year we have one or two Solo Shows during which the gallery is dedicated to the work of just one member. I expect to be contributing to all of the Group Shows and one of the Focus Shows titled “As Is” in October.

The Foyer Gallery in the Nepean Sportsplex, Woodroffe Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario.
