Schaffhausen

Back in early April 2006, my wife and I were on our 2 1/2 week honeymoon in Switzerland and visited the northern Swiss town of Schaffhausen. Are only reason for going there was that we saw it on a map. I recall having a pint in a Zurich pub and talking with a Swiss girl who asked…

Healey Falls

As mentioned in my previous post, our camera club went to Healey Falls yesterday morning. The weather cooperated for about an hour, then it started went downhill. It was the kind of snow that melts when it comes into contact with anything and it started to make spots on the lens. I was still able…

Photo of the Week: Week 4

Yesterday morning, our camera club went to Healey Falls and Ranney Gorge in the Campbellford, Ontario area. The falls are the result of a man-made dam where water steps down a number of ledges to the bottom. One could spend all day shooting the falls from all different angles, but for this post I decided…

Photo of the Week: Week 3

This weeks photo is actually from my outing with my camera club last weekend. This was the very last shot before my batteries quit on me. While a bit blurry (due to the slight breeze), I think it turned out well. The background is just as interesting to look at as the main subject. The…

Night Flowers

Last weekend, my wife and I went out on a date. Having a young child, we often find it difficult to get out for dinner or a movie, especially with our closest babysitters being over an hour away. Before our night out, I thought it would be fitting to get a couple of Stephanie’s favourite…

Photo of the Week: Week 2

I’ve been playing guitar for about 17 years now so I figured it was fitting to take some photos of it. I quickly came to the realization that the acoustic guitar can be photographed from any angle and it would look half decent. It has great curves, lines and shapes which make it a great…

It’s Cold Outside

Yesterday morning I woke to minus 17 degree Celsius (about 1 degree Fahrenheit). With the wind chill, it was well into the minus 20s. Our camera club had been planning an outing to Warsaw Caves Conservation Area just north of Lakefield, Ontario for several months now, and I had been looking forward to visiting the area for a…

Photo of the Week: Week 1

So the first week of 2012 is behind us and 95% of all New Years resolutions made are coming to an end. I have noticed a lot of photo-a-day projects popping up over the past week. I think it’s a great idea to motivate yourself to get out with the camera more often, but I…

Z’Mutt!

I was originally going to lump this post in with a review of old photos, but I like the images so much and wanted to discuss them in more detail,  that I thought they warranted their own post. Back in late March 2006, my wife Stephanie and I embarked on a delayed honeymoon to Switzerland for 2…

Digging Through Old Photos – Part 2

I spent some more time over the Christmas holidays going over some old photos seeing if there were anymore hidden gems, and I’ve pulled out another 6 that I felt were worthy of a little image touch up and display. For a look at my first review of old photos, click here. I love this…
