Shift

I have two blogs–this one that I now rarely post on and an art blog that I post on more frequently.  Being in nature in and out of the city is a large part of what sustains me in life and allows me to create.  So I’ve decided to  merge both blogs by creating a nature photography section in my art blog.  I’m not removing Of Humans and Nature, just not adding to it.

If you’d like to see additional nature photos of mine, do go to Arts of May.  And many thanks to those of you who’ve dropped by Of Humans and Nature and who have followed me.  All the best to you.

How Sweet It Is

Here’s a post after a long hiatus. I went to the Brickworks on this sunny day in Toronto. There, the light on the snow, the dried grasses, the trees were a boost to my spirit.

Trees of Gold

A glorious sight this morning: the sun on orange gold trees.

An Autumn Past

The gold and orange leaves are vivid in the ravines and streets of Toronto right now. They led me to these photos I took in 2012 at Arrowhead Provincial Park near Huntsville, Ontario.  It’s a small park, but that didn’t dim its beauty when we were there a few Octobers ago.

Still In This World

Hi people. I’m still alive after my recent break from posting.  The old computer suddenly ceased functioning with an electrical short and a puff of the scary scent of electrical burning filling the rooms. Since then I’ve been learning a new system.  These dwarf irises are from a Toronto garden in May.  Since then great blossoming has taken place.  We’ve had daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, redbud trees, magnolias, crabapples and cherry blossoms.  These have all gone and now we’re awash with the fading, but still romantic scent of lilacs, lilies of the valley and peonies.
