Remembrance Day

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m finally developing a backlog of film, so that’s why you’re seeing a Remembrance Day post in January. This was the first ceremony I’ve been to in a very long time. Our old was carrying the a flag in the local parade (photo #4 below) on behalf of…

Buckhorn Pumpkin Festival

A pumpkin festival post in January??? Yes. I have built up quite the backlog of film to develop and I’m starting to pick away at it now that I have some time. These were shot at the McLean Berry Farm back in October when we were selecting our pumpkins for Halloween. They had the usual…
