Lake Ontario is especially alive as October nears an end and November comes calling. Early morning can be an exciting time to experience the beach first hand… this is such a morning… October 19, 2010 at 7:10 a.m. The low light and the heaviness of a passing storm on the horizon inspired a pin hole camera effect that suited my vision of this special morning… here by the big water.


Aamora member Jim Ford shares his motto: “Wandering is one of my passions…where it leads me is not as important as what I see along the way” Enjoy more of Jim’s work on his photostream or searching his other aamora contributions.

He tells us: “I have a BFA degree from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with traditional printmaking as a major. I also have a MA degree from SUNY Oswego with a major in digital photography/photoshop and art history study in surrealism.  I worked in custom color labs and communication companies when I was younger and have taken photographs for many, many years. I have also been employed by SUNY Oswego for the past twenty-five years doing the same and soon to retire. I explore, search, record and present images of my daily life in the fine art tradition. My creative universe is expanding and I welcome it with open arms.”
