Railfanning Around Newtonville

Warning! This is a long post. Tons of photos and videos to follow. You’ve been warned. This is something I’ve wanted to do since before I was into photography. I’ve always had a fascination with trains. Combining trains and photography seemed like a no-brainer. I’m surprised it’s taken me so long to put the two…

Photo of the Week: Week 34

Today we decided to take the kids up to Silent Lake Provincial Park just south of Bancroft, Ontario. We’ve been there a bunch of times before and it’s always been a blast. It’s a relatively small, unknown park with a couple of decent beaches. We had a picnic lunch, went on a small hike and…

Kingston City Hall

Last Thursday we took a small family vacation to Kingston – about a 2 hour drive from our house. There was no real reason to go there other than for the change in scenery. We spent a good part of the afternoon wandering around downtown before heading back for a swim in the hotel. Since…
