Just Another Sunday

The Sunday before last was glorious. It was fantastic spring weather and we had no plans. We decided to take the boys to the Peterborough Zoo then to Beavermead Park… or as we like to call it “super park”.I brought along my Nikon F100 and a roll of Polypan F… a film that I’ve never…

Mount Pleasant Cemetery

Photographing cemeteries fascinates me. On one hand they are a quiet place to take some pictures or try out a new camera or piece of gear, and on the other hand there’s the sheer beauty of them. I have an ongoing project to photograph some of the relics left behind to commemorate someones life. The objects left behind…
