A BELATED AND UNUSUAL POINT OF VIEW

I’ve been away from the internet and making hay while the sun shines –  definitely a  bit behind schedule. For last weeks ‘point of view photo challenge’, here are some guest photos taken round about our lakeside home by my son in law Matthew, in 2009. His point of view and editing techniques are fascinating, detailed and unique . . .

Where you’re at, has “spring sprung”, or rather, is “fall in the air”?

  1. Super photos. Thanks for sharing. Thanks, also, for liking some of our posts. We appreciate it and hope you will visit our blog again soon, as we will yours.

  2. It’s such refreshing to see your boy’s take on photography. Children don’t have the preconceived ideas about what is right or wrong and thus they go about taking photos straight from the heart. And like for your son the result is often stunning. My favourite is the The foyer welcome!

    • Thank you Munchow. What you say is so true, really in so many areas of life as well. A person can have all the technique, all the knowledge, all the latest gadgets, all the desire and intiative, etc. etc . . . But if it does not come in some way from ther heart – well – something essential is missing. Matthews photography was from the heart, indeed!

    • I was thinking of counting on this tree. Looks like about 26 years . . . It was a beautiful spruce tree, and getting quite large but it was only a few metres from the cabin and I was worried about it blowin down on a windy night. We had to fall it in 2007. I began building here in 1979 when it was a new forest, so maybe this old tree trunk had 28 years in it.
      It’s nice to hear from you & take care.
