Peterborough Jail Park

The Peterborough jail opened in 1842 and operated until 2001 where it sat vacant for 14 years before being demolished and turned into an urban park. The park still has remnants form the jail with plaques describing what the jail and was like and about the types of inmates that were housed there. It’s a…

Millennium Park

A couple weeks back our camera club headed down to Millennium Park in Peterborough to do some shooting. I work right beside the park and take (almost) daily strolls through it, so I wasn’t really up for any photography. These are places and things I’ve seen every day for 15 years, so nothing really jumped…

Quaker Oats Trail

This is a spot I’ve wanted to photograph for a while, but had no idea how to access it. It’s a portion of the Otonabee River south of a dam, where the water levels fluctuate depending on how open the dam is. Two weeks ago, our camera club visited this location when there was minimal…

A Day Outside

A couple weeks back we decided to get out of the house for the day. The boys were getting a bit stir crazy so we braved the heat and went for a hike on the trails at Trent University before going to the Riverview Park and Zoo. Below are a couple shots from the day.…

Little Lake Cemetery

Two weeks ago, our camera club returned to an old favorite – Little Lake Cemetery. I’ve been coming to this location ever since my renewed interest in photography as it’s a quiet spot on the water surrounded by history. I’m slowly working on a photo project to capture the things that loved ones leave on…

Beavermead Park and the Trent Severn Waterway

I almost forgot about this roll of film. It’s been close to two months since I took these photos. There’s something magical about looking at photos for the very first time long after you forgot they even existed. Too often we view and share images immediately after making an exposure. We see the images on…
