Portraits Of People Who Can Make Me Smile 004

I think it’s pretty obvious my girlfriend was born to be on the cover of a Simon & Garfunkel album… or in the local weekly newspaper which, coincidentally, is where a black and white version of this photo was published this week. You’re welcome World. This is the second time I’ve selected a photo of Diane to be featured in this category. Again, you’re welcome World.


Technical Stuff: There are no filters for tiny digital cameras… at least none that can screw onto the lens. So sunlight will bleed into a shot. You’d have to use some freaky combination of fractal mathematics and differential calculus to find the percentage of times it actually works out like it did in this photo… which isn’t a lot. Mostly this photo should have been washed out, kind of like a post-grunge, Canadian-poptart album cover — I’m looking at you, Nelly Furtado.


This photo of Diane was taken in the Vankleek Hill Community Garden, which has mostly been allowed to return to its natural state of being a place where no one ever goes. If it’s going to continue, and it’s a decent idea, there has to be some kind of ‘end of the season harvest BBQ’ or something so people have a reason for keeping their plot growing. Some event to mark the seasons changing… something involving food… maybe an annual date put aside for giving thanks for the harvest… I don’t know, hopefully someone will come up with an idea for next year.
