New York City in Black and White

For this post, I wanted to explore our New York City trip in black and white. Personally, when I think of photography in NYC, black and white images come to mind. It’s such a colorful city, but the grit, architecture and people lend themselves really well to be photographed in black and white. While I…

Niagara Falls

Our family has been going to Great Wolf Lodge just outside Niagara Falls, Ontario every year for the past 9 years… sometimes a couple times a year. Every year after our trip we drive by the Falls but never get out of the car despite promising to do so every single time. This year was…

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.

Capitol Reef National Park

Perth for Lunch
