DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY, is a passion of mine that began back
in 1999 when a friend showed me some digital photos. I was so
impressed with the quality of the photos that I went and bought
my own camera. Since then it has been an exciting world of discovery
in digital photography.
impresses me about digital photography, in addition to the quality
of the photos, is the versatility of this format. The ease of
sharing my photos via e-mail, the option of creating enlarged
color prints suitable for wall hanging and of course, the ability
to show case them on line, all of which has inspired me tremendously.
This page is organized into two main sections: the main gallery of digital photographs and my previous awards and exhibits.
Awards And Exhibits
passion for digital photography had caught public attention back
in 2001, when I received an award for second place finish at the
Richmond Hill Communities
In Bloom contest. I feel honored to have received this award
from such a great community organization whose efforts help to
promote civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification
through community participation.
May'2003, one of my photos was selected out of 85 entries in a
contest held by the Mississauga Heritage Foundation. Photographers
were asked to submit photos with the following question in mind
of "what does Mississauga mean to you?" My photo was
selected specifically because it blended both natural and man
made landscapes, show casing what many of Mississauga's landscapes
August '2003, local Mississauga artist Fausta
Facciponte invited me to showcase some of my selected nature
photos as part of a dual exhibit at Lorne Park Public Library.
This exhibit took place during the entire month of August and
was a success. Upon her further invitation, I joined Fausta for
two more dual exhibits at Credit Valley Hospital and Adamson Estates.
at Credit Valley Hospital began the first of two dual exhibits,
with local Mississauga artist Fausta
Facciponte. This exhibit ran for the entire month of September.
The second exhibit at Adamson Estates and ran from November to
early December'2003. The theme for my photos was, "passageways
from the old world of France and Italy."
Valley and Adamson Estate exhibits were a selection of doors and
passageways which captured my curiousity during my visit to France
and Italy in 2002. Each door seemed to call to me to enter, yet
some were open and others were closed. The distinctive nature
of each door is expressive of the medieval culture in which they
were built. I believe we are all called to enter certain passageways
in the span of our lives, but to have the ability to stop and
ponder on the beauty of the door that is ahead of us, is part
of the journey.
In 2002, I visited France for the first time. Montmartre was of special interest, knowing that this was the place where the impressionists sold their paintings to make their living and pay the rent. It still attracts artists from all around the world today. This exhibit was held at the Credit Valley Hospital during the month of March'2004.
