Peterborough's Carol Lawless is known for taking beautiful landscape and sky images on Instagram. As she explains to us, "In the fall of 2012, I started driving back and forth to Bobcaygeon for my job as editor of an independent newspaper, The Promoter. I began taking photos of the skies, fields and barns along the Pigeon Lake Road. It was fun for me and I always looked forward to my drive to Bobcaygeon early in the morning and when I would return home usually just before sunset. Pretty soon, I started recording the skies and landscapes of the cities and rural areas I visited when I became a features editor for kawarthaNOW and people looked forward to seeing where i was going, and who I was visiting...
"My friends Nancy Carter, Sylvia Davies and Andrew Wilton believe my photos are a record of Peterborough and the surrounding area," Lawless says, "so they decided to mount and frame the photos for my 50th birthday present." They called it Lawless Landscapes, and organized an exhibit to be shown at Chasing the Cheese in downtown Peterborough in August.
"What's interesting about this exhibit is that I have always taken the photos because they are as much as expression of what I am feeling as they are a record of the landscapes in the county and city of Peterborough," says Lawless.
Lawless Landscapes will be displayed at Chasing the Cheese in downtown Peterborough at 372 Water Street starting August 1 and running through August 24th.
