  • John Domm enlightened the Western Wayne Art Group Tuesday evening with a travel log of his experiences on his trip to Canada and Alaska last year. Domm played a DVD of stunning digital images with an audio background that he, his wife, and their friends took during their exciting trip.
    Domm's photos captivated the group as they were transported from Walworth to Danff, Canada and all the way to Glacier Bay, Alaska. Domm showed wonderful landscapes of snow covered mountains, picturesque lakes, and lush foliage. Also included were the colorful towns and cities, unique sculptures, and inspiring museums of the area. Some of the places Domm showed were Vancouver, Canada, Ketchikan, Ak., Juneau, Ak., Skagway, Ak., and Glacier Bay, Ak. Domm finished up his travel log by orating the last couple stops of his journey ending in Anchorage, Ak.
    His travel log was composed of 500 photos out of the 1,300 he took. Their trip was also full of lively activities such as whale watching, hiking, and sampling local beers. Domm also said that it rained quite a bit on their sixteen day vacation. His favorite part of the trip was breathtaking ride in a small plane to Denali, Ak. and back.
    Domm also sells his photographs.
    "It is important for me to have fun taking pictures, and I do,” Domm said. “I enjoy combining photos. Take the time to look at my work closely because I usually change the original so that people will find something that doesn't seem quite right. It could sneak up on you or jump right out. Because I do so much digital manipulation, I now look at photos as dynamic where as I once saw them as static. I am always looking beyond the objects in front of me to see how they can be altered to make a more interesting image. I still do the documentary photos. My wife, Marilyn, and I still travel, so I have plenty of opportunities to take pictures in out of the way spots. Lately, I have done volunteer construction work with the First Presbyterian Church of Ontario center. These are great opportunities for people pictures, as well as documentation of progress."
     
    WWAG typically meets from 7 to 9 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month at the Walworth Town Hall (off Route 441) in Walworth. Members and guests are welcome.
