To the Atlantic Ocean and Back

This past weekend was interesting to say the least. A few weeks back my mother-in-law moved out to Saint John, New Brunswick. The original plan was that she would stay with family until the end of summer when she would find her own place. Those plans fell through… quickly. After a week she had found…

Yashica D – Second Thoughts

A couple years back I was given the opportunity to purchase a couple TLR cameras from a local photographer. My Yashica MAT-124 camera has been my most used camera and still continues to be, so I wasn’t really in the market for another TLR, but my good friend Paul was looking for an inexpensive way…

Helicopter Fish Stocking – Part 2

Two weeks ago I got to take part in some helicopter fish stocking for work. I was asked to spend the day capturing some photos and videos of our staff at work. It’s very rare that my hobby and work collide into a day of riding around in helicopters. We were lucky enough to be…
