Covid Captures #6

Last weekend, I think I spent the entire time outside sitting by the campfire. We had absolutely nothing going on and I needed to burn through some wood to make room for a couple trees I will be taking down and bucking up later this year. The kids came out and we made lunch over…

First Day of School

Last Friday was the first day of school for the boys. They haven’t been in school since mid-March, so they were itching to go back. School is going to be a lot different for students this year due to the pandemic. The first day, there were only 5 kids per class, and they had to…

Gevaert Gevabox 6×9 – First Thoughts

Following the recent success of using the Kodak Brownie 2a I went out the next day to our local antique store, (where I know they always have a number of box cameras) to try and buy another one. As soon as I walked in I came across a Kodak Brownie Target Six-16 which I bought.…

Kodak Brownie 2a Model B – First Thoughts

I’d never given any real consideration into using box cameras. They seemed so boring, bulky and the lack of any control turned me off. A couple of years ago my dad gave me this Kodak Brownie 2a that he picked up at a garage sale for $8 because he knew I was into old cameras.…

Isaiah Tubbs Resort

Our family had originally planned on spending a couple weeks this summer driving out to the east coast, but those plans quickly changed. After spending most of the summer at home in isolation, we booked a small trip to Isaiah Tubbs Resort on West Lake in Prince Edward County. We were joined by close friends…

Cobourg Photowalk

A month ago whilst enjoying summer vacation, I met up with friend and fellow film photographer Paul in Cobourg for a photo walk. We met up in the morning and explored the waterfront, pier and downtown. Cobourg is well know for it’s massive beach, which was completely closed for the season. The entire beach was…

Collingwood

At the end of June, one of our first excursions outside our “bubble” was to meet up with my brother and his family in Collingwood, Ontario. My wife was working, so the boys and I drove the 2.5 hours to spend the day just visiting family. We also took the kids to Blue Mountain Village…

Millbrook Valley Trails

Way back in June I met up with my friend Paul to go on a bit of a photowalk/hike in the woods. It was the first time either of us had been out with the camera in a very long time, so it felt kind of weird. We went to the Millbrook Trails and spent…

Covid Captures #5

Back at the end of July, my sister-in-law had a BBQ get together with us and another family. It was the first time our small group of friends had been together since before Christmas. We mostly hung out it the backyard and caught up on current events. The following weekend we met up at a…

Lang Pioneer Village

Yesterday we visited an old favourite – Lang Pioneer Village near Keene, Ontario. Normally, we visit about 4-5 times per year, both on our own and to attend the numerous events, but obviously haven’t been able to make it out this year. The museum has been working hard to keep the village open by offering…
