Throwback – Europe 1999

It’s been a challenge to get out and shoot anything new over the past month, so I finally decided to start scanning some old photos. I thought it would be fun to share some photos from my Europe backpacking trip in the spring of 1999. This was before I was into photography and I actually…

Covid Captures #1

Bored. Cooped up. Tired. This state of emergency we’ve been living in for the past month has been difficult. Even more difficult is trying to put on a happy face and be strong for my kids who are scared and even more bored than I. My wife and I take turns leaving the house to…

Puzzled

Sometimes it’s fun to make images with no specific subject that stands out. But instead focus on a chaos of shapes, textures and colours/tones. Our family has really upped our game when it comes to puzzles and can easily knock out a 1000 piece in an afternoon. We’re only 2 weeks in to isolation and…

Working From Home

With all that’s going on in the world now, we’ve been told to work from home where possible and minimize contact with people. My work sent us home the Friday before March break and we haven’t left the house since then with the exception of getting groceries. My wife is also working from home and…

Orange Corners’ Trestle

Over a week ago, I decided to go for a walk on my lunch break. Working from home these days has it’s little bonuses. We live just down the road from the TransCanada Trail and specifically where there’s an old rail trestle bridge. I haven’t been there in a couple years, so figured it was…

Niagara Falls

Back in mid-February we took our annual family trip to Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls. This was probably our 10th or 11th time there and I think it might be our last. The kids were getting bored quicker than normal, so we jumped in the car and headed down to walk around the falls.…

Peterborough Lift Locks

Last weekend my wife’s family was in town visiting so I had a couple hours to myself and decided to head out with the Pentax 6×7 and a roll of Ultrafine Extreme 400. I wasn’t planning on it but found myself at the Peterborough Lift Locks – a place I’ve photographed tons of times before.…

Photography Slump

I haven’t posted anything in a while. I actually haven’t taken any photos since before Christmas, and haven’t shot any film in about 2 months. I somewhat attributed this to shorter winter days and not enough free time, but I’m also not feeling very motivated to take any photos lately. I’m also struggling to find…

Favourite Shots From 2019

For several years now, I’ve created an end of the year wrap up blog post with some things I’m looking forward to in the next year. This year I didn’t take as many photos as in previous years and tried to focus more (pun intended) on making meaningful photos. I can look back at each…

Christmas 2019

This past Christmas felt very low key with a lot of down time spent at home, which was just what I was looking for. We spent days just lazing around in our pyjamas, playing with toys, video games and the family dog. Below are a couple shots I took of the boys building a gingerbread…
