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.”

Vi ringrazio tanto. Siete molto gentile.@Manfredi Caracausi
Mi piace molto il tono del bianco e nero… un effetto molto sognante e dal retrogusto antico… sembra che il mare si estenda verso l’infinito, complimenti 🙂
Thank you Maria….nice of you to comment.@Maria
The lake can be calm one day and throwing a temper tantrum the next….a very interesting entity. Thank You.@Ronnie Ginnever

Wonderful series, congratulations!
Many thanks John and Marie. My interest is always peaked when the lake acts up a bit.
Beautiful. I seldom get to see Lake Ontario in such a moody light. Love the pinhole effect.
