Lock 25

I haven’t been to a camera club meeting since last November. Honestly, I thought I was done with the club but started thinking back to all the outings and how they actually got me out shooting – something I’ve been struggling with lately. Last night we went to Lock 25 on the Otonabee River between…

Camera Portraits

To say that I’ve been in a bit of a creative funk lately is an understatement. I’ve stopped using Facebook, and haven’t posted anything to Twitter or Instagram in about a month. I still view posts on Instagram and Twitter though, but haven’t engaged in a while. Not sure if it’s the weather or what,…

CFS Lac Saint Denis

Last week, our family (and 3 others) spent a week in a cottage in the Laurentians in Quebec (more on that in a future post). About a 1 minute drive from the cottage was the, now abandoned, Canadian Forces Station Lac Saint Denis, an old radar station part of the Pinetree Line sites built in 1949. It…

Trent University

Back in June when my friend Paul was visiting, we spent an hour or so up at Trent University doing some more photography. Trent is a favourite go-to spot of mine to get out shooting and test new cameras… especially in the evenings during the summer when it feels like a ghost town. The architecture…

Photos From a 7 Year Old

Going out shooting with my 7 year old son is something that I don’t do enough of. It’s a way to get out and enjoy my hobby while spending time with family.. I try not to push too hard on the photography side of things and let him use some point and shoot cameras. It’s…

Downtown Kitchener

Just after Christmas, I had tweeted a photo about an Edward Burtynsky book I was reading, and my good friend MIke asked if I’d be interested in attending a Burtynsky exhibit at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery in January. I jumped at the opportunity. So a week and a half ago, another friend Paul and I…

Favourite Shots From 2015

It’s the time of year I get to reflect back on my little photography hobby. While a lot of photographers are reflecting back on their top 10 or 15 photos from the year, I hate trying to limit mine to a certain number, so I basically went and picked my favourite… 29 in total. 2015…

Killarney Provincial Park

Last fall, I spent 5 days on a solo camping trip in Algonquin Park. It was a quiet time to reflect and get away from the everyday rush of life. I enjoyed the trip so much that I decided to do it again this year. In mid-October, I spent 5 days in Killarney Provincial Park…

The Town of Killarney

A couple weeks back I spent 5 days camping in Killarney Provincial Park on Georgian Bay south of Sudbury, Ontario. After spending the morning hiking up to “The Crack” and shooting some medium format film, I thought it would be fun to shoot an expired roll of Eastman Ektachrome (FPP Retro Chrome 320) through my…
