One of the projects I set myself during the pandemic was to build a website to show my photographs. Well, finally, here it is. It was a steep learning curve and I’m sure there is much that I can do to improve it still. However, I feel it is now at a stage where I can share it with you. I hope you that will take a little time to look around and hopefully find a shot or two that speaks to you.

The photo you see above is of the old lighthouse at Cape Spear in Newfoundland, taken at sunrise. I chose it as my introductory photo because it represents the start of the day at the most eastern point in our fair land where light first touches Canada’s piece of the planet – a fresh start by any definition.

This photo is part of a collection that I’ve called ‘sunrise, sunset’, basically photos of skies. You can link to that gallery directly from the photo above or you can go through the menu. I’ve organized the photos into five main collections (with subgallerie): Places (cityscapes); Scenics (landscapes, seascapes and sunrise, sunset); Structured (architecture, doors and stairs); Living (fauna, flora and people); and B+W/Abstracts (black and white, and abstracts). Obviously, these are arbitrary labels and some photos in one collection could just as easily belong in another…or two.

From the drop-down menu under Collections on the Home page, each of these main collections is available. The ‘+’ sign beside the collection reveals the individual galleries underneath the main collection. The individual galleries can be accessed directly from this drop-down menu or from the collection page itself. On a browser click on a thumbnail to bring up the full size image. Play the slideshow or choose full screen option or swipe right to left. On mobile devices just swipe right to left to navigate from image to image or use the arrows.

From time to time, I will be adding to these collections and perhaps may even arrange them differently as the content grows. I hope you will return often to take a look and will let me know if you like what you see. Constructive comments are always welcome.

  1. Thank you, Ellie, for all your help and encouragement. Without you, I would never have got this up and running. And now, you are the first to comment. Hugs to you, my dear friend.

  2. So excited about your launch, I visited Abstracts collection first, and Wow I was there with you. Many more images followed. We were together, and photographing coast to coast, and across the Atlantic to Europe. Reliving experiences through your photographs are reminders of hard work, late nights, extremely early mornings and fun too. Best wishes and continued success in the world of photography where the learning curve continues on, from your travel mate-friend.

  3. This is a beautiful site to just relax and savor the beauty and creativity of nature but also you eye for what makes an interesting photo. I can see visiting this site often.
    Would love to hear from you when you get a chance

    1. Thank you, Heather. It would be great to get caught up. I’m going to be away for a few days in Algonquin Park. Hoping to catch the leaves turning, which they are already doing here. I return on the 25th, so after we can either call or drop a line. Hope you and family are all well.

  4. Congratulations on launching this beautiful site Janet. You have so much wonderful art to share and I am grateful to view. Learning about your various travels and experiences cannot compare to seeing through your eyes what has been captured. Magnificent. Truly a gift. I look forward to more of your amazing works…..please !!! –

    1. So glad you like it, Suzanne. Thanks so much for your kind words. I have so many more photos that I will add from time to time. Of course, I hope to keep making new ones too. By subscribing to the site, you can automatically be told when a new photo goes up.
