Port Hope Beach Through a Pinhole

On a recent photo excursion to Port Hope, I brought along both my Crown Graphic 4×5 and my new Holga 120WPC. I loaded up the pinhole camera with a couple rolls of Ultrafine Extreme 100 and mounted the camera on a tripod and made exposures anywhere between 4 and 10 seconds. I really like the…

Holga 120WPC – First Thoughts

At the beginning of October there was a social media thing called Holga Week. Basically an entire week of celebrating all that is Holga. I’ve had my Holga 120N for a couple years now and probably love it more now than when I got it, but recently I’ve been looking for something a bit different.…

Kiwanis Heydenshore Park

Charlie the Dog

My wife and I had been talking about getting a family dog for a couple months now. About 4 weeks ago we decided to go for it and started looking online. We read that Boston Terriers make good dogs for first time owners, (such as us), and we just fell in love with their unique…
