Gypsys Lense Photography

TySmith


Gypsy life and the concept of Wanderlust has an almost dream, surreal romanticized portrayal. So many dream of leaving the world (society) and to just \"go\", but so few do. Those that do know deep to their core Wanderlust; the uncontrollable urge to chase horizons and see what is around the next corner. Be it good or bad is irrelevant but rather it is the experience that is the magic. The adventure of getting to a destination rather than the destination itself. Current adventures and explorations are of Northern Ontario. So much of this land is dense and virtually untouched. Lake after lake; but the journey to get there is the challenge. Always learning and always being tested by \"God\"/Nature. This is the Alice\'s looking glace journey. My photographs can cover a broad range of styles, from landscape to still life in the studio. But the end effect is to try and bring that fringe to life. The edge, life at the edge of the peripherals. This is why I incorporate High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography into most of my images. Not so far pushed though as to be Salvador Dali but just enough to feel feel the bubble we can be inside sometimes, almost astral or de ja vu effect; real but not real. My aim is to document as many aspects of my adventures in the life of Wanderlusting; from the planning, designing and getting out in the world. All the while bringing a touch of dream to the world, for a dream is no more than a wish from the heart.

Wanderlust

We must go on adventures to know where we truly belong.

« Inner Zen The crisp beauty of a lily\'s purity in a lake/pond have a very pure calming affect.

« Cold Flight A cold skim across a frozen lake, (Ramsey Lake in Sudbury Ontario).

« Lone Flight Even on a crisp cold day, someone or something will always try and come out and great the day.

« Old Begining Every adventure begins with a dream, then some kind of planning. For me, the compass has always been a firm vision of exploration. North always has beauty.
