John Hartig is proud to be an author living in Vineland. Vineland is a cozy little village within the Niagara Region. Living here feeds the soul and inspires the mind because of all the orchards, the agriculture and the small-town atmosphere.
As a writer, I know what it's like to be inspired. I also know what it's like to stare at a blank screen when nothing comes! Often a little walk around Old Orchard Way will pull me out of my doldrums. There's always hope in the brief notes I take with a pad and pencil, or the computer keyboard, provided of course, the creative muse is with me, and I hope, a little talent.
Whether you feel like time blows by like a soft breeze or stretches out like an endless summer, you've got to make the best of the beauty you see around you, sometimes to photograph it, sometimes to paint it, and sometimes just to write it down. Vineland is a good place to be for the creative soul.
John Hartig is retired. He has decided to make himself available to other seniors in NIagara who want to become more comfortable with the computer, their digital camera, or maybe just some advice on writing. Maybe you are stuck in your own great Canadian crime novel or maybe it's your memoir or your family history? Maybe you want to create a nicely designed website for your wedding, your ancestry or small business? John can design that for you and also host the website! Maybe you want to get your novel or ancestry published? John can steer you in the right direction.
Let's see: writing and Niagara web design? Oh yes, the camera! John is willing to go on field trips around the Niagara Region with you and your camera [his own too, of course] to capture those lovely scenic photos that you've always wanted for your living room or bedroom wall? It might just cost you a coffee and a doughnut at the end of a photographic jaunt with John, well maybe some gas money too. Who knows? John likes to spend companiable time with people and their cameras. He is also adept at the scanner and photoshop, and he also has a collection of scenic prints for sale. Slip over to his Niagara Scenery Photo Gallery for a moment to take a peek.
Meanwhile, think photography! Spring and autumn in Niagara have such lovely colours. Why miss them?
