Puzzled

Sometimes it’s fun to make images with no specific subject that stands out. But instead focus on a chaos of shapes, textures and colours/tones. Our family has really upped our game when it comes to puzzles and can easily knock out a 1000 piece in an afternoon. We’re only 2 weeks in to isolation and…

Working From Home

With all that’s going on in the world now, we’ve been told to work from home where possible and minimize contact with people. My work sent us home the Friday before March break and we haven’t left the house since then with the exception of getting groceries. My wife is also working from home and…

Orchid

I haven’t done much photography over the past month. Finding it difficult if get out and shoot, especially with the weather and the fact that still gets dark early. So yesterday I set up an orchid in the basement and some artificial lights and shot some 4×5 sheets. I’m not overly happy with how these…

Historic Railway Bridge

I recently saw a photo of this old stone culvert on Instagram. It’s located just south of Millbrook in the Millbrook Valley Trails. From what I can find on the Internet, there used to be a large wooden trestle spanning this part of Baxter Creek. Eventually, this stone culvert was built in the 1860s and…

B-17G Flying Fortress

Way back in July, the Peterborough Airport held a “Flying Fortress Week” where a variety of vintage military aircraft was on display to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. Although I couldn’t make it to any of the events, our camera club invited to attend one evening and photograph the B-17G Flying Fortress. There was a lot…

Classics at the Barn

We’re pretty lucky to live where we live. Just up the road, there is a fairly large car show that is held every Thursday throughout the summer. It’s a good excuse to get outside and check out some cool cars. Also a great place to take some vintage cameras. Last Thursday, after our camera club…

Ice

As far as weather goes, this past week has sucked. Two snow days at school due to heavy ice build up. I took the opportunity to get outside and take a couple shots around the house.

Around the House

Our kids spent the last 2 days of their Christmas break in daycare. They were excited to see their friends and spend the whole day doing fun, kid stuff. I wanted to do a small photo challenge and ran a roll of film through the camera without leaving my house. Plus, it was super cold…

Fall Colours

Yes. You’re reading this correctly. This is a post about fall colours in January. These were all shot on slide film which I had to send out for developing, and to be honest, I forgot about them for a couple months. Fujichrome Velvia 50 is a film I’ve only tried one other time back on…
