Summer 2019

On the long weekend of June 30 and July 1, (Canada Day), we spent a large portion of the day lounging around at both Rogers Cove and Beavermead Park beaches in Peterborough. It was one of those rare summer weekends when we had no plans and the weather was spot on. The kids brought sand…

New York City in Colour

Finally. Over a month and a half since returning from my trip to New York City, I’ve finished developing, scanning, and processing all my film.
