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.

Prince of Wales Railroad Bridge, Ottawa, Ontario.

Foyer Gallery 2015 – Passion for Colour

The current show at Foyer Gallery is titled Passion for Colour. I’m late in announcing this one as I have been away.  It started on February 17th and continues until March 8th, so you still have the rest of this week to attend. This show is a group show featuring work by most of the members of the Foyer Gallery. Each member presents several pieces of work depending on size and I am showing three framed prints. I didn’t make it on to the poster unfortunately.

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.

KAP 2013-8 – Parliament Hill and Downtown Ottawa from Victoria Island – March 23, 2013

Back to the land of snow and ice after a wonderful month of February in Australia. Recently I have made a couple of attempts to KAP the Wakefield bridge without any success so a couple of weeks have elapsed without succeeding with any kite aerial photography. Finally a nice day arrived to do some work with the Parliament buildings and the still frozen landscape. Here are some of the shots from this session.
