Whilst walking my dogs one evening in a local park, I decided to have a look at the lake where I do not usually take the dog's. I arrived at the lake and noticed the great sky color and the reflections on the calm water but the problem was my camera was in my car about half a mile away from the lake. I rushed back to the car put my dogs into the car and ran back to the lake. After arriving back at the lake the sky color was just superb and I was really pleased to capture this great scene.

Fui de bicicleta até à Capela de Nossa Senhora da Encarnação. Lavada em suor atingi o topo. Sabia que por ali, este ano, cresce uma espécie de orquídeas selvagens. Penso tratar-se da Anacamptis pyramidalis, mas deixemo-la para outro dia. Após “pintar” com luz e cor as flores que subiam o monte, desci. O pneu precisava de ar e fui até a umas bombas de gasolina ali perto. Quando cheguei vi no relvado um sujeito :) que já não me lembrava de ver desde os meus tempos de estudante em Coimbra. Só tinha comigo a lente que uso para fotografar flores e teve de bastar. Ele foi simpático, subiu à árvore, mas ainda ficou em ramos baixos durante alguns minutos.

I went by bicycle to photograph a species of wild orchids (Anacamptis pyramidalis), but let's leave it for another day. After “painting” the flowers that went up the hill with light and color, I went down. The tire needed air and I went to a gas station nearby. When I arrived I saw a guy on the lawn

Je vous ai parlé il y a trois jours de Roger Frison-Roche, ce grand alpiniste écrivain pour lequel j'ai une profonde admiration. Ce sont ses livres sur le désert (La piste oubliée pour n'en citer qu'un) qui m'ont donné aussi envie de découvrir les déserts. Il me semblait que lui rendre un hommage sur une de ces grandes étendues était juste et mérité. Il nous a quittés mais je le relis encore souvent, y compris dans ces écrits sur l'Arctique, le peuple des Inuits, le grand nord. Un grand monsieur.

While most of 2020 has zoomed past our timeline and we saw seasons change from across our the window... this has completely changed my perspective of exploring local woodland. Always knew about this beautiful piece of architecture that is Riverside Museum in Glasgow and wondered path and explore this place; and boy that paid dividends.

How many times we run around chasing light, typical hotspots and landscapes in different directions. However, often we miss and ignore the beauty that lays in front of us... locally... Here's one among those beautiful captures from Riverside Museum @ Glasgow.

I'm fortunate to be the steward of a beautiful 80 hectare property on the rugged Precambrian Shield, north of my home in Kingston, Ontario. The land features forests, meadows, beaver ponds, rock outcrops and, notably, a 1.5 km portion of Depot Creek with 2 rapid systems and a waterfall. The creek provides endless photo opportunities with the changing seasonal weather conditions.

Walking In The Fog

Massachusetts, United States

Flag of US

This photo is from the trail named the Alfred J Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail. (I call it the "Q-Trail")
The trail is on the bed of former railroad tracks along the Quequechan River. The river name is a Native American word for "Falling Water" or "Leaping Waters" in Wampanoag, the tribe that once settled in the region.
In its original form, the river once had eight waterfalls as it traveled to Mount Hope Bay. But during the 1800s the river was dammed for the textile industry which, sadly, is now piped underground to the bay.
The waterfalls are gone but the slow moving river along the trail is one of my favorite places to walk and bicycle. If one looks closely, there is an abundant of wildlife during different seasons - which you probably have seen at Aminus3.

In 2018 the Q-Trail was selected as one of five finalists for the Urban Land Institute’s Urban Open Space Award!

All photos tell a story and this one is what can't be seen. It's getting late and the light is almost gone. It's cold, into the minus. The ground is frozen, the water trough is frozen, the horses are eating the hay we have put out for them. What you can't see is the man next to me. It's not unusual to meet people in the field, this man was mid 30's, presentable, clean, spoke with an educated accent. Talking to him, it seemed he was a bit eccentric but that is just my opinion. As we left the field, I realised that this man was homeless he had a wheelbarrow full of his possession. Off he trundled down the bridle path heading into the frozen landscape. Whether through choice or circumstance homelessness is terrible but this man seemed quite happy. He asked for nothing maybe all he wanted was conversation. He probably wont remember me but the image of him walking away into the dark and mist I found quite haunting and from the association with this photo I wont forget him any time soon.

It's a self portrait : my face on a statue in Geneva. Made in double exposure mode. I like the idea of a living face on a brazen body. I wanted to show my strength and my fragility as I am under cancer treatment. Strength as I am confident even during this Covid year but many thoughts about myself and my future.

This is a behind-the-scenes shot from "Dummyhead," an indie film we recently shot in South Portland, Maine this past November, during COVID. We followed strict safety protocols for actors and crew and kept it short and sweet (well, sweet if you like 5-minute horror films:) We shot the film on a Black Magic camera and this is the cinematographer setting up the camera while one of the actors and the director have a chat about the upcoming action.

The Manzanar concentration camp in California.

Olympia, United States

Flag of US

A guard tower in the Eastern Sierra? What is this about? The answer gives us a look into one of the darker chapters of American history. This is Manzanar National Historic Site located between Lone Pine and Independence, California, USA. During World War II, Americans of Japanese ancestry and Japanese who were denied citizenship by federal law were interned here and in nine other camps across the country. This was facilitated by President Franklin D Roosevelt signing Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942. The order authorized the US military to exclude and detain US citizens and resident aliens. In practice this applied to individual German and Italian aliens and all persons of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast.

I've known about this violation of Constitutional rights for decades but only recently learned of this historic site. I had to see it and see if it has any relevance to current events. I think it's important that we learn from our past instead of repeating it.

One of the downsides of getting old is the gradual erosion of physical strength and having to resign myself to the idea that with each passing year my stamina wains, yet I would be lost without walking and the stimulus of being in nature. Sadly the mountain I could climb ten years ago is unreachable now, but on the plus side I can still be grateful to get these glimpses of our magical world.

Mobile Month - Urbis

Manchester, United Kingdom

Flag of GB

Mid-October 2020 and much of the north of England is under Tier 3 restrictions due to Coronavirus, the highest level of mandatory closures. This was my first trip into the heart of Manchester city centre in seven months and it was very sobering to find the city looking dirty, tired and almost completely devoid of life. Sadly, many of the closed businesses may never reopen.

It affirmed my belief that such places aren't defined by shops, bars, attractions and architecture, but by the people that populate them bringing life, sound and colour.

Cities *with* people are bad enough, but cities without people are nothing.
