In June 2011 I found this book of Newfoundland photography. Although I use a digital camera for the photos that I post on this site, I find that they all contain the similiar feeling or quality. I have also noticed this effect in the photos taken by other amateurs like myself.
When I found Eye of the Beholder I realized that it is a good example of photography that does not have this mysterious quality. It is a refreshing break from the torrent of photos are being taken today with digital cameras.
Also, I’d like to point out that the images here, and those found elsewhere in the book, show an older Newfoundland. Maybe not from a different age, but from 30 years ago. Perhaps I have been in the city too long, but I feel that these pictures demonstrate a Newfoundland that seems to exist less and less. Take Plate 53, I remember scenes like this one from my childhood. Lately these seem to be a lot less common-place. Plate 58 is another example. The fences seen here were once endemic. Again, I haven’t seem them around as much.
