Happy Birthday Picture Pathway!


May 4th, 2024

Today Picture Pathway celebrates its first birthday! My dream of having a site devoted exclusively to seeing the world through photography and art was brought into reality one year ago today by our youngest son Mike, a web designer. The first amazing photographer to join me on this journey was our oldest son, Jason. To call me a proud and happy mom is an understatement.

To date we have been visually travelling around the world to far-off places like Austria, Budapest and Italy with Robert Simeon. We ventured to Hawaii and to the Canadian Rockies with Lori-Dawn Allard. We toured around Tel Aviv and parts of England with Rita Di Vilio Trudeau.

Guest submissions were wonderfully numerous and took us to fantastic places like Switzerland, France, Saudi Arabia and England with Laura Brady, Iceland and Norway with Helen Mason, Portugal with Wayne Noble, San Diego with Ron Craig, Mexico with Maria Matusik, Spain with Barb Campbell, and the Great Barrier Reef with Marolyn Morrison.

Closer to home we’ve watched stunning sunsets over Wasaga Beach courtesy of Jim Sutton. We visited the Canadian Tulip Festival in Ottawa with Joanne Brown Simpson, saw marvellous mushrooms with Judy-Lynn McGrath, climbed Dundas Peak and saw Tews Falls with Marie Vanderdoelen, walked through cherry blossoms at High Park with Maria Matusik, and enjoyed the beauty of Caledon with Shelly Ives and Chris Millar.

We’ve renewed our love of film photography and were gifted with views of ‘our hidden world’ through Jason Foley’s infrared photography. Jason’s shares his knowledge and experience in every post.

Marilyn Matis and Gary Hall have immersed us in the incredible world of wildlife that we share the planet with. Gary’s posts are always teaching moments and we have learned so much.

I shared some of my own favourite photo collections which are, most often, waterside places like Georgian Bay, Kawartha Lakes, Roatan, Costa Rica, and Fort Myers.

Last, and absolutely not least, we were blessed with the extraordinary artwork of three incredibly talented artists – Nikola Boadway, Lynden Cowan and Marica Villeneuve.

So, the next time you want something special to enjoy with your coffee or a nice glass of wine, we hope you’ll visit PicturePathway.com. You can savour this big, beautiful world by place, subject or contributor without even leaving your seat. Here comes year two! May the fourth be with us!
