Port Hope

A couple weeks back, I got together with local photographers Pat Trudeau and Jay Callaghan and headed down to Port Hope for a morning of photography.

I never really thought of graffiti being a subject to photograph, but after snapping a few shots and seeing what they look like on the computer, it makes me want to go find more. The colours and textures just pop right…
