Today is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day! While I celebrate by shooting some pinhole photos later today, I thought I would share some of the photos I took on last year’s Pinhole Photography Day. Around the time last year when I was experimenting with shooting Instax Mini film in my Mamiya C220, I was also building […]
This is the view looking north across Burrard Inlet from Prospect Point at Stanley Park in Vancouver. The first two photos feature the Lions Gate Bridge which was built in the 1930’s by the Guiness family (the same family responsible for the eponymous Irish stout), while the last photo is of Ambleside Beach in West […]
A few years ago, when I first heard that Bellamy Hunt of Japan Camera Hunter would be launching a new film, I had to place an advance order. I shot this the day I finally received my ten rolls of brand new JCH Street Pan.
I shot these from the balcony of my hotel on my first visit to Auckland. As I was enjoying the view one morning, I started to notice all the interesting things happening below me and had to snap a few photos.
Here are a few more photos from the family farm. New Zealand farms are often very hilly making them best for dairy farming or raising sheep. This one even has an apple orchard.
These photographs are from the Bretteville-sur-Laize Canadian War Cemetery at Cintheaux in Normandy, France. In 2015 I attended a memorial ceremony here in honour of the Canadians who fought and died during the Battle of Normandy. The first two photos show the many attendees including a few visiting dignitaries. If you look in the background […]
A fun thing I like about hiking is that you often discover interesting art and weird things in the woods. These photos are from a winter camping trip I took with students years ago.
These photos were taken at the Wintergardens in Auckland, NZ. Sarah and I spent a quiet afternoon wandering around the Wintergardens and Auckland Domain. It was an absolutely beautiful and incredibly hot day and I remember we enjoyed an ice cream in the shade of a tree.
These two photos of a flock of sheep were taken on Sarah’s parents’ farm. They have since sold the farm. I’m not sure what happened to the sheep.
Sarah has been learning to play guitar. A few years ago (when this photo was taken), she rented a guitar for a few months while she saved up to buy her own. She has since purchased a really nice Taylor GS Mini.
These are the last of my photos from my exploration of New Zealand’s Queen Charlotte Sound by air, sea and land. Motuara Island is home to the Little penguin and there are many man-made nesting boxes scattered throughout the island for their use. Each nesting box has a lid that you can flip open to […]
These photos from Motuara Island are from a weekend where Sarah and I explored New Zealand’s Queen Charlotte Sound by air, sea and land. Historically, Motuara Island is the location where, in 1770, Captain James Cook and his officers raised the British flag and claimed New Zealand for the use of the British Empire. Today, […]
In 2019, when Sarah and I were in China, we had the opportunity to visit a tea plantation in Emeishan. Patrick, our guide, drove us to the home of an old high school friend who was the owner of a tea plantation. Upon arriving, we were kitted out with traditional Chinese conical hats, tea baskets […]
I received a camera for Christmas this year. My wife gave me the Kodak Six-20 Model C. Made in 1933, it’s a 6×9 folding camera that takes 620 film. 620 film is the same size as 120 film except that the spools holding the film are smaller. This means that you cannot fit 120 film […]
These are all from the day I proposed to Sarah. We went horseback riding from Lake Louise up to the Lake Agnes Teahouse and I nervously carried the engagement ring in my pocket all day. In the end, I did not propose at Lake Agnes (too many people and no privacy) and instead proposed to […]
