Christmas Lights

Last night I submitted a post on photographing the candles on my dining room table. I really liked how the out of focus areas were still really interesting to look at. Tonight I tried to do something similar, but with the Christmas lights I put up this past weekend. Still pretty new to taking these…

Candles

I feel as if I’ve been struggling to get outside and take some pictures lately. By the time I get home from work at 5pm and spend some time with my 2 year old son before he goes to bed at 7:30, it is already pitch black outside. My wife had purchased a candle yesterday…

Festival of Trees

The Peterborough Festival of Trees event raises money for local health care groups by hosting a series of events in and around town. While there are several things to do including a kids zone, skating, holiday homes tour, and raffle walk to name a few, I was only able to spend about 30 minutes walking…

Old Faithful

So we spent the afternoon up at my in-laws house just outside Bancroft, Ontario. I had originally planned to photograph the waterfalls at Egan Chutes Provincial Park, (which backs on to their property), by the time we actually got there it was almost 4pm and there was very little light left. I did, however, manage…

Painting the Bedroom

How come it can never be a straightforward paint job? Why can’t I just paint the walls and be done with it? We recently decided to start sprucing up the place the we moved into back in August. After a long debate, our master bedroom was selected as the chosen one. The plan was simply…

Making the Leap

After only a couple months of blogging on Google’s Blogger, I have made the executive decision to move over to WordPress. There wasn’t really anything pressing me to make the move other than Google is starting to drive me nuts. Don’t get me wrong, I think Google does a great job in the collaboration department,…

Composition: Lines

Today being Remembrance Day, meant that I got the day off work and decided to spend the morning out shooting. This was my first time actually going out for the sake of photography. Up until now I’ve just been bringing the camera with me to the park with Patrick. I’ve spent a lot of time…

At the Park

This past weekend, my wife Stephanie had to go to Vancouver for a work conference, leaving Patrick and myself to have a boys only weekend. As mentioned in a previous post, Patrick and I were down in Whitby this weekend for my niece’s first birthday party. We had no plans, and decided to spend the…

Kaitlyn’s First Birthday Party

This past Saturday was my niece Kaitlyn’s first birthday party. I always love baby birthday parties because we not only get to celebrate a birthday (usually with cake), but it’s also a chance for old friends and family to get together. In our small group of friends, it seems that everyone has pumped out at…

Six Years and Counting

Stephanie and I just celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary on November 5th. To celebrate, I took Patrick to a birthday party, while Stephanie had to go to a conference in Vancouver. Not the most ideal way to celebrate. We did manage to get out for a fantastic dinner at St.Veronus in Peterborough on Friday…
