“Big things come in small packages.” Mom…… also a bunch of other people as well…
Shot this a few years back while on vacation in Ottawa. The Rideau Canal is to the left of this shot, above ground and to the right would be the Parliament buildings. We’re enjoying a much needed ‘staycation’ this coming … Continue reading

Have you ever noticed how many quotes there are online about beauty? By people you’ve never heard of?
Here’s another shot from Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Beautiful place but really, really hot and dry. I shot a lot of pictures with the P7100 on this trip and was really pleased with the way they turned out. It definitely … Continue reading
What a beautiful day for a bike ride! Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend….or will have a great holiday weekend next week…..or maybe you’ll get lucky and you can take both holiday weekends off!
Ok, granted it’s only a robin but still it’s nice to see the birds back isn’t it? I’ve been playing around with the Leica 45mm on my G3 this week…that is I was until my G3 stopped working. The camera’s … Continue reading
I shot this with a D50…remember that camera? That was ‘ages’ ago, at least by today’s standards that is. It’s amazing how quickly we move from camera to camera these days, not that I’m complaining mind you. After all I … Continue reading
“If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God.” G K Chesterton Perhaps we should all aspire to ‘put one touch of rosy … Continue reading
Ever get the feeling that music from an old spaghetti western should be playing in the background? Shot this at the Scarborough Bluffs last summer and it still makes me chuckle. The bluffs are made of sand and clay which … Continue reading
You know, when you make it a habit to regularly go through your older photos sometimes you come across a little gem like this.

Happy holiday weekend everyone! The thing I like about a holiday weekend aside from seeing family and time off and all that, is that the store is closed. This means that if I borrow any gear I get to … Continue reading
The strangest formations we’ve seen yet these hoodoos are located in Drumheller, Alberta. We checked them out after a visit to the Royal Terryll Museum on a rainy day during our Alberta trip. Oh yeah, did I mention that Drumheller … Continue reading
This is one of my favourite shots from my Project 365. I think it was one of the best, if not the best one of the year. You can check the whole project out here if you want to see … Continue reading
Had a beautiful, sunny spring like day today in the great white north. The snow is finally melting and even though we will likely see more snow before winter is done I found myself dreaming of days like this. … Continue reading
If, you are lucky enough to be in Las Vegas and if, you need to get away from the tables for a bit, this is less than an hour’s drive away. They have a thirteen mile drive laid out that takes you through … Continue reading
This is what you get when you’re out for a drive with someone and you catch a glimpse of a nice shot and you say to the person driving, ‘Can we go back?” and they do.
Today is the first nice day we’ve had in a while so off we went for a drive…. This is one of the first shots I’ve taken with the X100. Straight out of the camera no adjustment needed…..I’m going to … Continue reading
Hoorah! My habit of unscientific gear tests continues! I’ve been playing around with Panasonic’s 100-300 f 4-5.6 OS lens lately or, more accurately, waiting impatiently for the weather to co-operate so I can go outside and have some fun. It … Continue reading
