      Thanks…great to have a local 86 y.o. local ‘adorer’!!

  5. wow….those forest shots are something! you’re clearly “out” of your mind!! dave

    1. I LOVE your complement “out of my mind”!!! I am and loving it!! I hope to see you on the 14th when we pass through Wells. I am celebrating my 80th by going around the Lakes once again!! See you soon. Chris

  6. Chris,
    I love your new direction into abstract & impressionist photography. Your evocative images inspire and delight me.
    Harrisburg, Oregon (currently)

    1. Hi Julian. Delighted to hear you are appreciating my journey into Expressionism and Abstraction. I find it inspiring as well! Cheers for now.

  7. Chris, I’m impressed how you manage to create artistic images out of photographs. If these same images were actual paintings they would be heralded as expressionist art and probably have more monetary value. Do you agree? I remember living on Block Drive in a beautiful log home overlooking Walker Valley. Occasionally I would walk down to the valley floor and photograph the birch and poplar trees.
    I just pulled out my old photo album and with my iPhone, snapped a few of the photos, which i would like to email to you. Is this your email address? photography@chrisharris.com.
    They are not of high quality but they give you an impression of the beauty of Walker Valley, summer & winter. I’m sure you have photographed the area many times yourself?
    I hope to visit in early September, so hope to give you a call?
    Kind regards,
    Terry Young

    1. Thank you Terry. This newsletter response got lost in spam, but I will get in touch with you regarding your visit back to the Cariboo. I photograph with painting very much in mind. I have family members who are painters so I try to photograph with paint brushes!! I agree, they would probably have greater monetary value if they were paintings. I’ll try and change that!! See you soon.

    Fabulous, Chris. Can you explain how you did this technically?

    1. Hi Brian. Amazing how images from our garden enters your world in Ireland! I’ll write you personally! Best wishes.

  9. For me, most of my photography is done in my own back yard … and partly due to you “Freedom of Expression” makes me feel so good! Thank you for all the wonderfully inspiring workshops you have given and I hope to do many more. Take care my friend.

    1. Hi Larry. Every month gets more exciting!! I missed not laughing with you at a workshop this year…hopefully next year. Take care Larry.

    Awesome compositions from your home surroundings. Feels like you are seeing them through the 3rd eye with a soft vision. Thanks for sharing your expressive art with your camera.

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts from the north Adbhuta.

  13. Love the twilight and night images!

  14. Your house and property with all the flowers reminds me of Freeman Patterson’s house on the hill, with all the flowers going up the lane.

    1. That’s a complement; Freeman has a beautiful garden. Thanks!

  15. Thanks Bill. Hope to visit your Studio soon. We are going to paddle the Lakes again on the 15th. Hope to see you maybe on the 14th. Cheers.

    As you know, your photos take my breath away. This series really touched me-i have never seen photography like it. Take care my friend-from far away Coquitlam. Cheers Helen

  17. Chris: Your creativity knows no bounds. Each time I view your images my body responds with a great big “YES”. I can’t wait until the borders open so I can take more of your workshops. Joan

    1. Hi Joan. Thanks for you comment as always. I too can’t wait to share another workshop with you as well. Wishing you the best in health. Chris

  18. Hello Chris, I have been enjoying your work for decades now and can’t believe it’s been that long!! I have so many happy memories of canoeing the Bowron Lakes with you back in the early 1980s. That trip was a stepping stone to so many more wilderness adventures. As for photography, I love taking pictures of trees, specifically different parts of trees, close up. Thanks for this wonderful display of art and photography.

    1. Hello Barb. How wonderful to hear that you still receive my Newsletter after so many years. Yes, I remember that canoe adventure; those were great times! Thanks for getting in touch and continue to enjoy your photography…and life!

    Hi Chris, your abstract images were amazing. I particularly like ‘Expression of severe lightning strike’.
    Also like your new idea of ‘portfolios’
    This is my second attempt to send a comment!
