Georgian Bay Landscapes In Aurora, Skylight Gallery Looking Good

Jul 31, 2012
Already August. Spiders are getting bigger. Be on the lookout. This is probably not so trivial phenomena I happened to notice that my collection of spider photos is always richer in the fall. My collection of Skylight Gallery displays is also growing.

Half Size Spider in Aurora

I happened to snap photo of this young fella. I know what you are thinking – the spider already looks big to you on the photo but in real life it is half size of what we will see later in the fall.

I hate spiders near me and to my luck this one happened to almost land on me while I was getting inside the car. He was already wrapping the giant insect with his web. That assured me that he wasn’t after me. Opening the door interrupted his fight and both creatures of nature went separate ways when I shook them off my seat.

July was one hot hot hot month. Last week on Monday we were not in the mood to stay outside neither stay at home. We ended up driving to a few cool places, one of them was Skylight Gallery at the Aurora Town Hall.

You may also recall last week’s wicked thunderstorms we had over night. I thought I was dreaming, yet later someone confirmed that they experienced the same. It was a real shock-wave that rattled our windows and shook a bed I was sleeping in.

Note the comment about spiders has nothing to do with the Skylight Gallery, however, for some reason the paintings reminded me approaching fall and the spiders.

It is almost August and what you see here is July’s showcase – the Georgian Bay Landscapes & Beyond at the Skylight Gallery by acrylic artist Diane Soward. I really enjoyed these vivid landscapes, it felt as we were looking outside the window and seeing the Georgina Bay.

I was glad to see that the backdrop panels were finally replaced to something more presentable.

I am living in Aurora and this is my photo journal blog. A picture says 1000 words - but not always, so I write. You don't have to travel 1000 miles to find a treasure - all I have to do is zoom through my lens and I will find it for you here in Aurora.


  1. Anna,
    My wife June and I have been photographing Merlin’s Hollow this summer. David and I know each other from work we do on behalf of the Arboretum. After each shoot I have been taking images to them on a tablet so David and Dierdre could see what we have and choose images they would like to have as hard copy. Yes, they are not ‘computer-literate’, but they certainly are ‘garden-literate’. A couple of weeks ago I stole several of your Merlin’s Hollw images from your website, put ‘em on a tablet and showed them to the Tomlinsons. Yes, this was all news to them. Yes, they think it’s fine. Last week Dierdre asked if I could print a couple for her. She loves your artistry. I told her that the files would be too small to be useful anywhere other than the Internet.

    I’ll admit that I’m not ‘into blogs’. I have however been back to Living in Aurora a few times and like what you do and how you do it. We are of different generations but are both happy to live in Aurora and love photography. I like that.


  2. Thank you Tom.
