Millennium Park

A couple weeks back our camera club headed down to Millennium Park in Peterborough to do some shooting. I work right beside the park and take (almost) daily strolls through it, so I wasn’t really up for any photography. These are places and things I’ve seen every day for 15 years, so nothing really jumped…

Quaker Oats Trail

This is a spot I’ve wanted to photograph for a while, but had no idea how to access it. It’s a portion of the Otonabee River south of a dam, where the water levels fluctuate depending on how open the dam is. Two weeks ago, our camera club visited this location when there was minimal…

Quick Stop in Perth

Portrait of Keith

Taking portraits of people is something I’ve always wanted to get into but have personal issues with. What if I ask someone and they refuse or give a funny look and walk away? What happens if I mess up a shot and make them look different from what they (or I) expected? With one sheet…
