Lock 25

I haven’t been to a camera club meeting since last November. Honestly, I thought I was done with the club but started thinking back to all the outings and how they actually got me out shooting – something I’ve been struggling with lately. Last night we went to Lock 25 on the Otonabee River between…

Rising Waters

Yesterday I went for a walk along the Otonabee River in Peterborough during my lunch break. From my office window overlooking the river I could see that the water levels were quite high due to the cold weather and constant rain we’ve been getting lately. Below are a couple phone shots edited in the Snapseed…

Niagara Falls

Our family has been going to Great Wolf Lodge just outside Niagara Falls, Ontario every year for the past 9 years… sometimes a couple times a year. Every year after our trip we drive by the Falls but never get out of the car despite promising to do so every single time. This year was…

Leftover Photos From Our Southwest US Vacation

On our recent trip to the US Southwest, I shot close to 20 rolls of medium format film and only 1.5 rolls of 35mm. Below are the last shots from the half roll of AgfaPhoto APX 100 on our trip. Both from Bryce Canyon and Death Valley. Camera: Voigtlander Bessa R3M Lens: Voigtlander Color-Skopar 35mm…

Warsaw Caves

Warsaw Caves Conservation Area is a favourite spot of mine. We’ve been coming here for as long as I’ve lived in the area. This time we had the entire place to ourselves. The caves themselves are quite small, but fun to explore if you like getting dirty – which on this particular day I did…

Cordova Falls

Cordova Falls is a spot that I return to every year around mid-November for a couple of reasons. The first being that it’s such a neat spot to photograph and so much changes from year to year depending on the amount of water flowing over the dam; and second, it’s one of those rare times…
