Over the past several years I’ve helped out with a few photos and assignments for one of my favourite non-profit organizations, Ottawa Riverkeeper. They have reciprocated kindly by hanging five of my prints in the main reception area of their offices on Scott Street in Ottawa (above Trailhead). They have been hanging there for the past 18 months or so.
This evening one of those prints, a 24 x 36 framed canvas print called ‘Round the Point (shown below) will go on sale in one of the silent auctions at the Annual Public Meeting this evening September 23, 2014 at the Museum of Nature. This is a kite aerial photograph showing a sailboat at Pinhey’s Point on the Ottawa River.

I’m participating in the West End Studio Tour (WEST) again. This is my fourth year (after taking last year off due to family obligations) .
I have primarily focused on three themes for my photography presented at this year’s WEST. The artistic side of derelict property is my main theme largely comprised of works from my trip to Havana earlier this year. I will also be presenting a number of newer aerial photographs, some taken with kite aerial photography, some just taken from high places. The third component of this year’s offering will be a number of abstract images, collected from here and there.
W.E.S.T. is in its 19th year and for 2014 has 16 artists showing a variety of art works. I’m one of two photographers on the Tour. My gallery is in my home at 480 Denbury Ave.
