The other day I got to help Finding Them Homes take some puppies down to an event in Toronto. There is nothing so interesting as

Check out several nature and wildlife photography projects by James Krant, Barrie.
Just as the mug shot says, “all you need is love and a rescue dog”. All my life dogs have been an important part of my family. They demonstrate and reinforce important qualities like loyalty, unconditional love, affection, kindness, discipline and so much more. Dogs are four-legged children and companions who are playful, faithful, protective, nature loving creatures. What qualities do you see when you look at these dog photos I’ve shot recently?
Petmd.com lists 5 top reasons we love dogs so much:
- Love! – “Dogs wait at the door when they know you’re coming home. They dance for you with excitement when they see you. And they’re always deliriously ecstatic to see you.”
- (Wo)Man’s Best Friend, Forever – “Unlike the latest gadget or gizmo, you’ll never grow tired of a dog. From the infancy of a puppy to the regality of an old dog, canines are a constant source of surprises and rewards.”
- The Cheapest Shrink Around – dogs love us no matter what. They’re always prepared to listen to us and they want to snuggle.
- An Instant Exercise Partner – as soon as you pick up a leash, your dog gets super excited. Dogs encourage us to go for walks. With dogs, it doesn’t even feel like exercise but a joyful walk in the park.
- Not a Chef? Not a Problem – dogs love us because we love them not because we’re excellent cooks!
Point Pelee and surrounding countryside is one of the major points of entry of migrating birds into Canada. In May the area is alive with hundreds of different species. This year I was there a little later in the season. There might not have been as much variety as there is earlier in the month, it was still a great time, and as always I saw some old friends and some I had never seen before.
Spring has come again. The countryside is green and signs of new life are everywhere. There is nothing quite so tender as a mother and her young.
I have seen a lot of Bluejays this fall.
On Saturday November 22 I will participate in the 2nd Annual Artisan Fair being held at Willow Creek Baptist Church, 2387 Gill Road, Midhurst. I will have on display some mounted prints and some cards using the images shown below. Examples of Wildlife and Nature Photography.
The assignment is to produce images from mythology. Every country or race has it’s own set of God’s. The God’s would be nothing without the people for the stories that are passed on down from generation to generation deal with how the God’s have interacted with us. Often the God’s dealt indirectly with man through various creatures. In Norse Mythology we have the Fenris wolf and Midgard Serpent. In Greek mythology we have fauns, centaurs and the minotaur to name a few.
I came across the crane when I was taking the dogs for a walk several years ago. It was on the edge of a farmers field a couple miles up the road from where I live in Hillsdale. The bird was surprisingly friendly, it let me take close to a hundred images of it as it continued on its way. This image has proven to be one of the most popular images. I have had more requests for prints of this then any other image.
