Waiting to Take Flight

A butterfly sits perched atop a piece of dewy grass awaiting to take flight after a night’s rest. I converted this photo to black and white in Photoshop then added back in the orange from the butterfly’s wings.  This was done for a Facebook competition. i will post the full colour version tomorrow.

Dee Cernile
My brother James, and I went to Arizona’s Taps and Grill on the weekend to see Sven Gali play live.  We’ve been fans of the band since the late 80’s when they started playing local clubs.  I first saw them close to 20 years ago when they were playing a local cultural center, long before I was old enough to get into the clubs. The band had split up for some time in late 90’s and reunited last year for one show.  This summer they are back playing at least three shows.

Like my recent previous concert shots, this photo of Dee Cernile was shot with the Canon G9.  The camera has been great so far.  A little noisy in low light situations like this (especially above ISO 400) but still usable. Converted to black and white, great looks.  I like the tradional concert photo look of this one.

Rocks along the beach on Georgian Bay

Rocks along the beach on Georgian Bay.  This was shot with my new Canon G9 I had been looking at them for a while as I wanted a good camera I can carry around with me without always having to take my SLR and assortment of lenses.  The G9 has full capability, a Canon Digic III sensor and will sync to my existing Canon flashes if I need it too.  In the words of Monty Burns… Excellent!
