Niagara Falls

Back in mid-February we took our annual family trip to Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls. This was probably our 10th or 11th time there and I think it might be our last. The kids were getting bored quicker than normal, so we jumped in the car and headed down to walk around the falls.…

Peterborough Lift Locks

Last weekend my wife’s family was in town visiting so I had a couple hours to myself and decided to head out with the Pentax 6×7 and a roll of Ultrafine Extreme 400. I wasn’t planning on it but found myself at the Peterborough Lift Locks – a place I’ve photographed tons of times before.…

Photography Slump

Port Hope Beach Through a Pinhole

On a recent photo excursion to Port Hope, I brought along both my Crown Graphic 4×5 and my new Holga 120WPC. I loaded up the pinhole camera with a couple rolls of Ultrafine Extreme 100 and mounted the camera on a tripod and made exposures anywhere between 4 and 10 seconds. I really like the…

Waterfront in Port Hope

For the past several years, I’ve gone out shooting on Remembrance Day. It’s one of those rare days where the kids are in school and I have off work, and it’s nice to get out an take some pictures and reflect on what Remembrance Day is all about. I’ve always gone to Cordova Falls, north…
