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…

New York City – iPhone Shots

Out of sheer convenience, I probably took as many photos with my phone as I did with my film cameras.

Following a trip to the Open Doors event at the Whitby Rail Maintenance Facility, we took the kids down to the lake shore in Whitby to play in the park and on the beach. The light was flat and dull and there was no wind making the calm lake and sky blend into each other. Below…
