Bear with a Bear Bell

Most of this role was shot at my friend’s labyrinth. It is a peaceful walk through his family’s old farm property. The meandering kilometer is full of Eye Spy creatures and symbols that make it a great space for reflection and close-up photos. My favourite is the bear with a bear bell! The end of […]

A Trip to Grand Beach

In this roll of film, we were out taking pictures at Grand Beach. The most unsettling moment was walking on the beach and hearing the crunch, crunch, crunch of shells underfoot. The whole beach was littered with the hollowed-out carcasses of the invasive Zebra Mussels. It was shock to see what I remembered as one […]

Farms, Marshes and Trails

For this Film Friday, I take you to the old outbuilding we saw last week in a 3 frame colour photo. My composition was poor, but it was still fun to experiment with. Then it was a trip to Oak Hammock Marsh, where I am finding that exposure is a little to long. Still, I […]

It Lives!

These were from a walk around The Forks, visiting the Kudlowich family farm at Birds Hill and a stopping in a farmer’s field […]

Birds Hill Park and an Old Homestead

I took the Voigtlander Prominent with me on one of our walks around Birds Hill Provincial Park. This time we decided to visit the historic site in the park, the Kudlowich family farm. There was lots to take pictures of including the house, barn and old farm equipment that had all weathered through the years. […]

Now that I have caught up on the negatives that I have shot over the last year or so, I realize I won’t be shooting and developing fast enough to keep up two posts a week. The solution? You got it, Film Fridays. For the first post here are some images of my girlfriend working […]

Close Friends

I recently got to have a socially distant tea with two exceptionally good friends. Len Jr. and Len Sr. While we were chatting, I snuck to quick pictures to end my roll of film. Truth be told, the roll should have been done already, but I had accidently triple exposed one frame and I am […]

Spring at the Dam

I have fallen behind on processing my negatives and am only now just getting a chance to get into the laundry room (my pseudo-darkroom) to develop the negatives. After which, I scan, edit, and now publish. I have also caught up to all my earlier photos and to keep up with two posts a week, […]

Hoar Frost Magic

We went to Kildonan Park for this shoot in the mid-morning after we awoke to hoar frost. It was a beautiful day to walk the park and we even ventured down onto the Red River. I also learned that there are several types of frost (Nat Geo has a nice article here on radiation frost, […]

Walking and Wondering

These images were taken in January 1,2021. They are from three of our walks. One was around our neighbourhood as we took in the sights of Christmas lights. Even with lifted spirits despite the cold and the lockdown, Covid-19 continued to make itself know. The sight of a discarded mask was heart breaking both in […]
