Black and white photograph
8 x 10 inches
© W.W. Muir (my father)It's been a busy day, but not much time
devoted to art. In honour of the anniversary
of my father's birthday, which is tomorrow
I thought I'd post one of his photographs.
This is from a print he pulled himself in the
small basement dark room he had for a couple
of years in Ottawa. After he moved his family
to Toronto, he spent more time on painting
I've always loved his black and white work.
This shot reminds me a bit of Mary Cassatt
and her paintings of women picking fruit.
I miss my father, and I know his photographs
inspired my son Christopher to follow in his
footsteps to be a photographer and cinematographer.
Have an honouring-your-parents day.
