Images of Thunder Bay

This collection of images of places and objects in Thunder Bay, Ontario is not meant of be a cross-section of Thunder Bay but is an attempt to capture some of its character and spirit. Some of the images  – such as the image of the Hoito Restaurant – were made by combining three or more photos into one image . These high dynamic range (HDR) images have a wider range of contrast than a single image. Consequently, HDR images more closely approach what the human eye sees. Some of the images, however, also have an other-worldly look. For other similar photos see Photography section called “Buildings, Monuments and Miscellaneous Items”. Some of my photos of Thunder Bay can be purchased at Fireweed in Thunder Bay.

    Well I like the Damn things and I don’t care what ANYBODY else says! [That's my attempt at a joke]
    I think your HDR photos are a unique and interesting way of “seeing” what we are looking at.,In my opinion, anything that arouses us from the ordinary into a more aware state is often useful. Keep up the good work and experimentation.

  • For us the acid test of a photograph is whether or not we would hang it on our wall. Your photography “passes with flying colours”! You have a good eye, and your HDR photos are really amazing. Thanks Jon.

  • Hi Jon.

    I teach at Confederation College

    My 1st year students are having a Reel Art Show on Monday, and I wonder if I might ask permission to use you picture of the college, it will also be on youtube, I will give you credit. It will be on screen for about 10 seconds or so.

    You have very nice work….
    Thanks for considering my request.

  • I think the HDR image gives an “other-worldly look” more than what my eye might see. But I do really like them. They are more artistic than regular photography.

  • Fantastic photographs Jon. From an artist’s and photographer’s perspective, I give you’ve created some fantastic images. From a former Thunder Bayite’s perspective, I’d say that it looks a lot like like my hometown, just slightly a little bit better.
