30. Tulip

20060430.jpg

The same tulip as yesterday, only in a different angle.

On a differnt note, last night I attended the Niagara Falls Camera Club annual awards banquet. I received a number of awards, including the McGarry Photo award for Slide of the Year for my shot of an Eastern Tailed Blue butterfly. I also received honour awards in the slide of the year, colour print of the year and monochrome print of the year competitions as well as top in the Gold division for both slides and monochrome prints. Finally, I was installed as the new President of the Niagara Falls Camera Club.

27. Belts

20060427.jpg

Leanne and I took a day trip to St. Jacob's Market today. I brought my camera along hoping to find more patterns shots among the displays, but unfortunately, there wasn't a lot of repition in the display to produce nice pattern shots. I did get this one just as we walk in though.

26. Dutchman's Breeches

20060426.jpg

I was out Sunday with Scott and John in a light rain. Once we decided that conditions were favourable for shooting some spring wildflowers, we walked back to get our equipment. That is when is started to rain harder. We shot for a little bit anyway before it got really bad. This was about the best shot I could get off before things became too wet to continue without proper rain gear.

25. Wheels and Gears

20060425.jpg

I posted the colour version of this photo a little over a month ago. It is from a shoot with Dave at the Old Welland Canal. I've been busy the past couple of days so was looking for something to post from my archives when I saw this image and knew it would look great in black and white.

19. Rocks

20060419.jpg

Rocks on the lake shore. Timing was everything with this in order not to get the waves coming in over the rocks.

I have wanted to do a series like this for a while, and this subject fit the bill. I have a larger version that can be viewed here.

These are a few rocks on the lake shore of Charles Daly Park in St. Catharines a few weekends ago.

12. Surf

20060412.jpg

I was out Sunday as I am most weekends with John and Scott. There was a lot of waves at the lakeside (Lake Ontario) but surprisingly little wind. This is a shot of the surf as it crashed that morning.

20060410.jpg

I was in Toronto last week near Yonge and Gerrard when I saw Jerry playing his guitar. Leanne and I stopped and listened for a little while, then I asked him if I could photograph him. We talked for a little while then Leanne and I continued on our way.

So, why not review some of my other Dave shots!
