around the world with fPOE ... this week it's London, Canada

First of all i want to say how much i love writing these posts ... i get to look at the amazing work of a group of incredible talented women from around the world & then share with you. It's about as good as it gets! But anyways back on track this week we're heading back to North America but it's London, Ontario, Canada & the stunning imagery of Jennifer Squires Ross. & really i'm not sure where to begin. I've never been good at landscapes, i want to take a class & learn from someone who understands them & as i sit here looking at Jennifer's work it makes me want to jump on a plane & have her show me how a professional does it. I'm in love with the peace & quiet, the stunning beauty & the simplicity of her photography. 
Jennifer produces the kind of images that you would hang on any wall in your home, that make me thin of "zen" & i'm really not a zen person. They're so calming & tranquil, places i just want to wander around on a lazy sunday, escape to with my camera through out the seasons & explore so i can come to understand them in the way that Jennifer does. It's as if she becomes part of the landscape around her, never taking anything with her but leaving a part of herself behind in her work. The skill that goes into creating suck pictures blows my tiny little impatient mind, she achieves everything i wish i could & in a way that seems effortless. Yes i know i'm gushing here a little but landscape photography of this skill is something i have never mastered but i've always dreamt of, & maybe it's something i never will understand but i would at least like to try (so some tips would be nice here ... pretty please in the spirit of almost christmas). 
I've also noticed that it doesn't matter what the subject Jennifer can produce that tranquility in the curves of a flower ...
... a lonesome lifeguards chair ...
... & yes i am in love with all things snow right now!
As with every week you can purchase all the images you see in the blog post on etsy, as well as viewing more of Jennifer's work on flickr, her blog, & her website. & i have no clue where we're heading next week but i'm really really hoping for some snow!!

around the world with fPOE ... this week it's Sydney, Australia

So i must admit in this little around the world trip we've been on we haven't managed to leave the US a whole lot ... not that am really complaining because well we've seen some amazing work but only a couple of trips outside the states to Manchester, England, & Ottawa, Canada ... so this week it's wonderful that we get to head to the southern hemisphere & Sydney, Australia to check out the extreme prettyness (is that a word or did i just spell it wrong) of Serinissima. She titles her page "where dreams & reflections merge" & it couldn't be more appropriate. I see so much dream inspire work at the moment, images that remind me of fairy tales, happy endings & narnia & the work we see here is most definately in this category but there's a twist. 

When i look at Alena's work i feel as if i viewing it through a sleepy haze or a fog ... a mirage or a figment of an over active imagination. It has a very surreal quality to it in that you can't quite what you're seeing. It makes it appear totally calming, almost hypnotic in it's effect on you the viewer. & it leaves you wanting more, What happens next, is there something around the corner (because you totally know there is something around the corner). Like that initial tumble down the rabbits hole or walking out the waldrobe for the first time. I feel like a child seeing something new & wonderous & not being able to take it all in. & the muted tones through out her images that are far from being dull simple add to this feeling. Maybe i just stepped into (or out of) a painting?

i don't even like coffee but this one i want to indulge in ... 

& winter appears just around the corner ... 

& now i really do wish for snow!

As usual all of the images in this post are for sale over on etsy ... & you can check out more work on Alena's flickr & blog!

around the world with fPOE ... this week it's Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

So i know it's been a few weeks ... everything got a little crazy in my world & in the end i just decided with leave coming up to take a wee break. So whilst i'm back from my travels i figure it's time we head off somewhere new. So far we've checked out the fabulous work of FPoE artists Mary VicanMandy BryantElle MossMyan Photography & Diane Miller (phew that's a lot of artists) ... across the US to England, back to the US & now we're off to Ottawa, Canada to check out the stunning photography of Caitlin Brookes & The Paper Butterfly. Now i've been known to capture the occasional butterfly picture, & i am learning to love nature more & more but this girl has it down to a fine art. Seriously Caitlin manages to photograph this stunning insects & much of natures finest in a story book,  magical, dream like way oh & i adore her name "the paper butterfly". 

Oh & did i mention macro quality of this skill takes not only great skill but an imense patience that shows in her love & portrayal of the subject matter. When I look at Caitlin's work, it's like i'm drawn into this fairy tale world, like Alice when she fell down the hole. A land that so often passes us by since it's so small & inconsequential to our world but here it is the focus of everything fragile & delicate & beautiful. & the tones Caitlin uses in her work simple add to the magical quality of it. Even when she shifts to a black & white the subject matter be it insects, birds, animals flowers or whatever aspect of nature she chooses to focus on keeps that mythical quality. Like we're stepping into her own private land of Narnia. 

From the dragonfly shown in all it's glory ... 

... to tiny buds sitting in rows along a branch ... 

... Nature in Caitlin's hands comes alive. 

As usual all the images you see here are for sale on etsy, but you can also check out her work on her stunning blog & of course her flickr site
