Car Show at Lang Pioneer Village

It was only a day or two before that we found out there was going to be a car show at Lang Pioneer Village – a favorite spot for outings in our family. I already had my large format camera ready with a couple sheets of Ilford HP5 Plus 400, so that’s what I shot…

Classics at the Barn

A couple Thursdays ago, after my gym class, I took my oldest up the road to the weekly Classics at the Barn car show at Craftworks. I think this was the first time I’ve been to the show this year. In previous years, I’ve gone a number of times throughout the season. This show was…

Peterborough Pulse

Every year, for a single day in the summer George Street in downtown Peterborough is shut down to car traffic. Peterborough Pulse promotes healthy and active communities and local business.

Helicopter Fish Stocking – Part 1

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…

Whitby Rail Maintenance Facility

The weekend before last was Open Doors – where communities and businesses allow the public special access to usually off-limits spots. I wasn’t too impressed by the options in Peterborough this year, so when my sister-in-law suggested we go to the event at the Whitby Rail Maintenance Facility, I was all over it. It was…
