Bath Time

Came across this photo the other day and not sure why I passed over it the first time. It was one of the very first shots I took when getting back into film. At first it looked overexposed, but nothing in it is blown out and I really like the high key effect and the eyes…

Mississagi River Provincial Park

This past weekend, I spent time going through my photos trying to pull together some stuff for a family photo album. I came across these two photos below taken on a fishing trip in the spring of 2009 in the Mississagi River Provincial Park north of Massey, Ontario. There were both taken with my old…

Riverview Park & Zoo

Last Thursday, our camera club went to the free Riverview Park & Zoo in Peterborough. The rain held off just long enough to get in some photography.

Little Lake Cemetery

Dyeing Easter Eggs

Well it’s been a while since I posted any family photos, so here we go. In preparation for Easter, we spent some time this evening dyeing eggs. This is something that Patrick has done before, but not William. He loved it. I had all the lights off and was just relying on the light coming…
