Ottawa 2019

Back in mid-August, my oldest son and I went on our annual trip to Ottawa. My brother is in a conference there, so we just crash in his room and spend the days exploring town. I had loaded up my Nikkormat FTn with an expired roll of Kodak Gold but on the second day (and…

Pool Party

Back in August we found ourselves one Saturday without anything to do. So my brother and his family invited us down for a swim. I thought it would be a great opportunity to play around with my seldom used Altissa Altix V camera and a roll of Rollei Superpan 200. Below are a couple shots…

Summer 2019

Turning 40

A couple weeks ago I turned 40 years old. It’s kind of a weird feeling turning 40… and only because I vividly remember when my dad turned 40. I remember what we did for that party and who was there and some conversations that were had… and to be honest, it didn’t seem that long…
