Old Buildings

Lately, I’ve taken a liking towards old, abandoned buildings for photography. Something about the history of the buildings, the old coloured wood, the rusty metal, usually in the midst of being reclaimed by nature that lends itself well to being photographed. I recently came across two buildings that somewhat fit that bill. The Austin Saw…

On the Side of the Road

Driving home from Minden, Ontario the other day I passed a couple ponds on the side of the road and decided to stop and snap a couple shots. I couldn’t believe that ice had almost taken over a couple of the ponds, (2nd and 3rd shots). I wasn’t going for anything particular in these shots,…

Burleigh Falls

I’ve finally thawed out enough to write this post. It was so cold. How cold was it? It was so cold, Tim Horton’s was serving coffee on a stick.

Millbrook-Cavan Firefighters Association

While walking around Millbrook on Tuesday night taking random photos, we came across a very interesting building. From the outside it looked abandoned, so we set up tripods and started getting our compositions ready, when two vehicles pulled up. A bunch of people jumped out and scurried into the building. So it wasn’t abandoned after…

Millbrook

Tuesday night, I headed with a friend down to Millbrook, Ontario to do some more night photography. “But Kevin, aren’t you tired of doing night photography?” Hellz no. I see it as a challenge, and I think the photos can be more dramatic than they would be in the daytime. So there. This will be…
