Tommy Thompson Park

Last weekend, I finally got to photograph a spot I’d wanted to for a long time – Tommy Thompson Park, or as it’s better known as the Leslie Street Spit. This has been Toronto’s dumping ground for construction waste since the 1960’s. As such, the beaches are pretty much made up of eroded bricks, concrete…

Hogs Back Falls

Hogs Back Falls is a place that I’ve been eyeing up for sometime now, but for whatever reason I could never make it there. This time, I was determined to go and check it out. Upon arriving in Ottawa, I hopped on my bike and pedaled the 45 minutes or so along the Rideau Canal…

Perth for Lunch

Back in mid-August, I spent a couple days in Ottawa freeloading off my brother who was there for a conference (more on that in a later post). On the way to Ottawa, I stopped in downtown Perth for some lunch at a Mexican restaurant on the river. I spent a little bit of time walking…

Double Exposure Challenge

This project is something I’ve heard about before and have wanted to try out for some time. I approached my good friend Paul and asked if he’d be interested in doing a double exposure challenge. The premise is pretty straight-forward. Run the same roll of film through two cameras to create multiple exposure images. Paul…

A Weekend Around Town

Last weekend, my wife was in Bancroft visiting family, leaving me with with boys. After lazing around the house Saturday morning, we headed to the Peterborough Zoo and playground to burn off some steam. Following lunch we had to apparently burn off more steam, so we headed to Jackson Park and spend time exploring the…
