Family Reunion 2017

Well over a month ago, we spent the weekend at Isaiah Tubbs Resort in Prince Edward County for my wife’s family reunion. The weather was perfect and we spent the day lounging by the beach and watching the kids play in the water. I was testing out my new (to me) Nikkormat FTn and just…

A Weekend Around Town

Last weekend, my wife was in Bancroft visiting family, leaving me with with boys. After lazing around the house Saturday morning, we headed to the Peterborough Zoo and playground to burn off some steam.

Although I couldn’t make it to any of the events, our camera club invited to attend one evening and photograph the B-17G Flying Fortress. There was a lot…
