I have been a bad bad Blogger.I have neglected something that had started to take root.After several months of not posting only today have I realized what I have missed.I looked at the blog statistics only to be blown away by the number of hits and comments that the blog has received.So what now?Well its gut check time.Do I believe what I have to say has some merit or am I simply blowing smoke.With what I have read I must be doing some thing right.I must be on the right track with both my blog and my photography.So i thank you all in careing enough to leave a comment and now after a long artist block I will be back and as strong as ever.

Recently My main computer has had problems.This is the computer that I use for photo editing.It is my main computer.It sucks that it isn't really working.
I have done some research on finding covered bridges in New Brunswick.I didn't really realize how many that there were.It great.i cant wait til I get out and start to shoot these.I am trying to create a really nice book out of this.

I have spent the weekend experimenting on HDR photography.I love the vivid colors and rich details that these type of photos produce.I have down loaded some plug in in gimp to help with this process.
For any one who doesn't understand hdr photography it is a combination of a series of photos taken at different exposures then combined in a digital editing photo program such as gimp.

The wooden bridge was the choice of builders during their day .The have provided a refuge from weather,a quiet place for young love and platform for young people to prove there bravery through bounding leaps through out the years.
I will start mapping the route that I must take .Weekday nights will be spent finding some these treasures and planing day trips through out the province.Many of these bridges are in Charlotte county,the county that I grew up in.Many of these bridges hold special meaning for me as I too was one those brave boys who would leap off of the bridge to the cool water that lay before.

On the photography front I really want to start to create a body of work.Something I can be proud of and a vision of how I see the world.With the flooding in south western NB this past December I realized how delicate the covered bridges that dot the area really are.I have decided to try and photograph as many of them as possible.I have decided to take these photo's over an extended period of time.I will post more as it develops.(Sorry about the pun)
