Photo of the Week: Week 33

The whole point of the photo of the week project is to get out with the camera as much as possible. In most cases, the photo I choose is my favourite from the week… In this case, it’s one of the only photos I took this week. Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been out…

Photo of the Week: Week 26

Yesterday, after a delicious pulled pork sandwich at our favourite spot in Keene, we headed to my parents trailer on the Trent River just outside Hastings and broke out the water toys.

Photo of the Week: Week 25

Photo of the Week: Week 1

I’ve made an executive decision to keep doing the photo of the week project. I was 99% sure I was going to change it to a photo of the month, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. Anyways, so here is post #1 of 52 for 2013. It’s a shot of my 3…
