Favourite Shots From 2019

For several years now, I’ve created an end of the year wrap up blog post with some things I’m looking forward to in the next year. This year I didn’t take as many photos as in previous years and tried to focus more (pun intended) on making meaningful photos. I can look back at each…

Christmas 2019

This past Christmas felt very low key with a lot of down time spent at home, which was just what I was looking for. We spent days just lazing around in our pyjamas, playing with toys, video games and the family dog. Below are a couple shots I took of the boys building a gingerbread…

Holga 120WPC – First Thoughts

At the beginning of October there was a social media thing called Holga Week. Basically an entire week of celebrating all that is Holga. I’ve had my Holga 120N for a couple years now and probably love it more now than when I got it, but recently I’ve been looking for something a bit different.…
