Family Day

Last Monday was Family Day and the weather outside was awesome, so we took advantage of it. We were feeling a bit lazy in the morning, so we just walked up to our little park down the street from our house. I took the opportunity to bring along my Pentax 6×7 and an expired roll of…

Blue Mountain

Last weekend we went up to visit family and friends in Collingwood, Ontario and spent a couple hours at the base of Blue Mountain. My wife, brother and I went night skiing there the night be and the conditions were quite sloppy. On Sunday we brought the kids up to see a ‘real’ ski hill and…

Film Find

Last Sunday, I met up with my good friend Paul for a camera show in Toronto. I had no clue what to expect at these types of shows. The place was packed with old film cameras and accessories and a ton of people. There was so much stuff to look at, and while there were a couple…
