Niagara Scenery Photos
The question "Who am I?" is often answered by what one does.
I'm a scenery photographer in Niagara. Well, that's not quite true! I'm also a wedding photographer, a web site designer, a writer and a poet. I like all that stuff. I don't pretend to be a refined artist and I don't brag about any great success in my endeavors. I'm not famous -- though it would be nice. Maybe then I could afford a new camera. But I am rich in time! You see, I'm retired...and I do take nice pictures!
A person needs to slow down and smell the roses or stop to take those pretty sunset pictures. Time just flies by, like the poet, Andrew Marvell, said so long ago: "But at my back, I always hear, Time's winged chariot hurrying near!" Andrew Marvell died in 1678. Paul Simon, in more recent years penned these lyrics: "Slow down, you're movin' too fast, You got to make the mornin' last...Hello lampost, whatcha' knowin', I come to watch your flowers growin'." Whether you feel like time blows by like a rushing wind or whether you feel like it simply drags by like an endless summer, you've got to make time for beauty.
I live in Vineland, Ontario, a great place from which to drive to Niagara Falls or in the spring-time to breath in the orchards that abound in the countryside just outside of Niagara on the Lake. Welcome to my site. I hope you'll stop and smell the roses, as it were. So just "set a spell," get yourself a cup of coffee or tea, and take a look at this pot-pourri of scenery which I love to share with you.
