This was shot in Perth, Ontario on the 28th of July, 2009.
It's a tongue in cheek take on the works of Thomas Kinkade,
the weasel known as The Painter of Light. I'd give you,
dear reader, Kinkade's web link, but I feel that it only
encourages him and I've sullied this page enough with
some of my works. He's easy to find on Google.
But with this picture, there is that Goyan twist...
IT'S GARBAGE DAY! Certainly no reflection on
Kelly's Floral Market, a really nice and sweet little store.
The least that I can do is give you their link
Say it with flowers.

Leica photographer Jonathan Lorange discusses his work at
his showing at the Shenkman Arts Centre, Orleans, Ontario
26 September, 2010
I urge you all to look at his diverse work. He shoots with Leica M6
rangefinders, the king of the grabshot cameras. Nothing equals the
Leica rangefinder for speed of composition.

A far cry from my usual fare.
Taken 27 April, 2009.
Good news, folks. I am getting my Leica M3 rangefinder camera repaired, so I will be shooting in film again. Being the retro guy that I am, I will be shooting in orthochromatic black and white film, the kind that was used before the 1940s. Finding the film is a task unto itself, but I found a great place to buy film and rangefinder equipment. The place is called Big Camera Workshop (see http://www.bigcameraworkshops.com/default2.asp ). Amazing supply shop from Burlington Ontario. The site is like a candy store for photographers. Check it out! You won't be sorry! The lens section is like looking at the jewelry section at Tiffany's. BTW, for those who aren't familiar with the Leica M3, click here http://www.kenrockwell.com/leica/m3.htm . The Leica M3 is often regarded as the greatest camera in photographic history. I concur.

Alright. I know.
The shoe thing is getting out of hand.
These are the shoes and ankles of Terrilynn Rader,
the famed ballroom dancer and host of the Rogers TV show Daytime.
Smart, witty, and one of the most graceful people on the planet,
I am proud to call her a friend.
