This is a picture of a plant leaf in the flower planter on my veranda. The rain drops on the plant leaf caught my eye so I used my macro lens to try and capture the water droplets and the texture of the plant. I played around in Photoshop to get the second image.

I shot these daisies while on a trip to San Francisco in May of this year. The daisies were located on an outdoor walkway connecting the hotel we were staying at to a shopping centre. It had just stopped raining at the time I took this. You can see the raindrops on the daisies. I used the selective focus technique in this photo to isolate and draw attention to the daisey in the middle of the photo.

This is a picture I took of fishernmen in Little Harbour, a small community just outside Twillingate, Newfoundland. These fishermen are preparing their nets and boats to go caplin fishing in the morning. With the decline in the fishing industry in Newfoundland, we are seeing a whole way of life slowly disappearing before our eyes. At one time there were many fishing boats operating from this tiny community but now there is only one boat of fishermen who fish. It is very sad to see happening. I converted the colour image to black and white as, I believe, it better depicts our link to our fishing history.
