Slow Dance

slow dance

My neighbours have a couple of those wee statues used to encourage drivers to slow down. Folks around here have a great deal of fun posing them. I’m sure you can see why I call this photo ‘slow dance’!

Frog Prince and Me

I found this cool frog statue in one of the yards just down the street from my house. I love the way e has been set on this interesting tree stump. The bonus is-this is a self portrait! Twice. Look in his beady wee eyes and you will see my reflection.

Crazy Concrete Dog

I moved in close to crop this dog statue ina way that had him looming out of the top right of the frame  – tight at the top (even losing some of his head) and extra generous at the bottom. I tried to exaggerate the chaos and disorder of the scene by keeping all of the sight lines slightly skee-whiff. Just a little disorienting. By boosting contrast and saturation the winter leaves transformed themselves into fall colours, adding a time dislocation.
