The Woods at Fleming College

This past Thursday, I joined our local camera club on an outing to photograph trilliums at various spots around town. In fact, I only made it to one spot before calling it a night. The woods at Fleming College are a favourite of the club, yet I haven’t ever been there before. The bugs weren’t…

Fall Colours

Yes. You’re reading this correctly. This is a post about fall colours in January. These were all shot on slide film which I had to send out for developing, and to be honest, I forgot about them for a couple months. Fujichrome Velvia 50 is a film I’ve only tried one other time back on…
