In love with Ma Nature! Always have been, always will be. Let’s keep her safe, eh?


A card sold!

A wonderful, but, alas, anonymous person has purchased a greeting card of my work Shinny! The Great Outdoors in the Great White North…

To whomever you may be, many, many thanks!

So greatly appreciated.



A sale - Guindon Park's Wildflowers Calendar!!!

Many, many thanks to Leslie a.k.a. Bluenorther for buying a copy of my calendar “Through the Seasons: The Wildflowers of Guindon Park”.

I don’t think it was up for more than five minutes when that magical e-mail appeared in my inbox!

Once again, thanks so very much, Leslie! I greatly appreciate it!

Most sincerely,


A Grand Slam! Woohoo!

Yesterday I was replying to a lovely comment on my Wolfie shot Oh my! What big teeth you have, when I noticed I hadn’t added it to any groups. Silly me. I only uploaded it 6 weeks ago.

So I went and clicked a few group boxes in “edit” and duly added it.

I got home from work and was just looking briefly through my pages of RB activity and I found out that it had been featured 3 times!!! What a wonderful surprise!

And the final honour.

Many, many thanks to Laura Retyi, the wonderful host of
Cats and Dogs
Images of Endearment
Animal Captures and Confessions

Most sincerely,


Young Colin makes a sale!!!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen. My Nephew has made his first sale on Red Bubble!!! A wonderful person has bought a card of his Columbine flower, one of two he asked me print and frame up for the Rachel’s Kids Auction. More details here if you can spare a minute.

I told him this evening and he was fair chuffed, indeed. He asked me how much he made from the sale and he was delighted.

So, to the person who really made the young lad’s day, heartfelt thanks from the young lad himself and heartfelt thanks from his Old Unkie!

Most sincerely,

Mike and Colin.

Two of my works exhibited at The Gallery!

The Cornwall Regional Art Gallery has its Second Annual Juried Photography Exhibition running at the moment and I was lucky enough to have two works selected and put on display.…

They are “ABACAD” (A Bridge, A Canal, A Duck)

And “Industrial Mandala”, a wee abstract I put together from a sunset photo of the same canal, taken in the Spring of 2010.

The Gala and Awards Night was last night (August 25th) and the three winners were announced. Unfortunately, I wasn’t one of them, but my works are still in the running for the People’s Choice Award which will be announced mid September.

So if you happen to be in Cornwall, Ontario between now and then, please pop into the Gallery and vote for mine. You could even buy one if it captures your fancy! The address is 168 Pitt Street, Cornwall, Ontario

A Sale!!!!

After doing all my usual mundane Sunday tasks, I fired up the old pooter and checked my e-mails. There was only the one. From none other than Red Bubble, telling me I just made a sale! I checked the details and a wonderful (but anonymous) person has shelled out a bucketful of money and bought a Large Framed Print of Joe Bonamassa, a photo I had taken back in 2002 at the Tremblant International Blues Festival.…

Joe is a simply marvellous performer and has risen to the top of his profession, justifiably so! If you get a chance to see him in concert, in a word GO! You will not be disappointed. Here’s a short video you may enjoy. And you may recognize the guest guitarist!


Many, many thanks to the buyer!!! I hope you enjoy the print. You’ve certainly made my day. I’m still shaking! Wha

"A Whiz Of A Lily" Sold! (And a bit of catching up to do)

Many many thanks to Sheila Vaughan, A.K.A. artwhiz47, for buying 2 cards of A Whiz of a Lily.

Greatly appreciated, Sheila!

Meanwhile, I’m just back from my annual pilgrimage to the Laurentians in La Belle Province, Quebec.

It was the last weekend of the 18th edition of the Tremblant International Blues Festival and I’ve been going to it since the first one, many years ago. A whack of pictures taken, a lot editing ahead and so far behind on RB.

So please bear with me.

And, once again, thanks so very much, Sheila!
