Grotto of Our Lady of Lourde

A drive out of town had us stop in Cooks Creek where one of the churches hosts a grotto to Our Lady of Lourde. It was a challenging place to take pictures and it forced me to realize that I have a tendency to take my black and whites while still thinking in colour. I […]

Ghostly Landmarks

This roll of film took us to St. Norbert, just south of Winnipeg’s Perimeter Highway (Apparently Winnipeg is one of few cities on the continent that doesn’t have a highway proper going through the city, who knew?). St. Norbert used to be far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis that the […]

A House Fit for a Witch

This roll of film was taken at the park close to us, Kildonan Park. It will pop up often in my rolls of film as it is close, scenic and a beautiful place to practice and work on my photography skills. I may not be great now, but I will be! -KMSB

Camping at Hecla Island

The first of two rolls that were taken during a camping trip to Hecla Island Provincial Park. It was a fun trip but it was also the continuation of horizontal lines while using my filters. -KMSB

Cement Cemetery

The last roll of film was the start of a series of images taken at Pile Henge just outside Winnipeg. It is also lovely called the Cement Cemetery and is worth the walk through the tall grass to explore the unique scenery. Just make sure your tetanus shots are up to date. -KMSB

The Mysterious Pile Henge

My girlfriend and I made a couple of fun stops during this roll of film. the first was by a field of sunflowers. We, of course, took all our pictures from the roadside and never entered the field. Although the urge to explore between the beautiful stalks was there, we knew better than to go […]

Roadside Vistas

This roll has only two images. Most of the pictures didn’t come out. thank fully two of the RGB ones did. The first is of cars passing on the road. The second was three images, each one focused at a different distance from the camera. It turned out okay, but it was tough to get […]

A Stroll Through the Park

As I continue to play catch up with my negatives, this roll brings us back to Winnipeg on a stroll that my girlfriend and I took through Kildonan Park. Several of the images didn’t capture what I was hoping. From the weird blob in front of fuzz … To out of focus flowers … And […]

Restoration of the Past

Still in Lunenburg on the harbourfront, my guide, Stephen Ernst who captures images using large format cameras and then hand colours his black and white images, took me to a ship construction building that was being restored and set to be opened again for building wooden ships. Later we went to Hospital Hill where I […]
