Art

In the minds of many people an image is not “Art” unless produced by some hand process like painting, drawing, etc.

I have had many photographs receive the compliment, “Gee, it looks like a painting!”, as if somehow painted images (no matter how poorly done) are the gold standard by which images are judged.

“Looks just like a painting” is not a compliment to me.

Lately I have discovered some Photoshop processing the does a terrific job of changing a photograph into a watercolor style image. The processing is flexible enough that feeling and mood can be modified to express what I want to say.

Here are some images that started as photographs.

Lake Nipissing November Sky

Lately the weather has been warm and the air calm.

Afternoons have been long and languid.

Sometimes the skies over Lake Nipissing have been dramatic.

A bit Tom Thomson-esque.

Two Portraits

When there is no bed available for an afternoon nap.

A snooze is taken where you find it.

It won’t last long, but the warmth of the sun makes it comfortable for a bit.

The fear in the hearts of many is mostly unjustified.

Where do you go when you have no place to go to?

First Snow

The first snow arrived the other day.

Autumn wasn’t finished yet.

So, it shone through, and the snow went away.

But it will be back.

Autumn Dress

One Mile Bay on Trout Lake is very near where I live.

I pass the end of it each time I want to go to town, and it always looks a little different each time.

Here it is in October.

There is no tree like the Maple Tree for colour in the Fall.

Duchesnay

A popular spot to visit in our part of the world is where Duchesnay Creek cascades down the rocky escarpment on the North side of Lake Nipissing.

Several ledges form pretty waterfalls and rapids in the almost 1 km trip from the top to the bottom.

This photograph was made near the end of the journey that the creek takes on its way to Nipissing.

Autumn On The Beach

There was a time when this location was the shore of a post-glacial lake.

Now it is an inactive sand pit.
