Working Around Obstructions

On the way to Muskoka recently my friend Bill and I stopped by the side of the road to photograph this scene. I was a challenge to work around a sagging power line in the middle of the frame. I shot this with my Hasseblad (square format), and in post decided to crop it as shown, and I quite like the way it turned out in the end.

Flipping a Switch

From the Thursday we arrived at the lodge. It was a dull afternoon from a skies and lights point of view, until this happened (for about 10-12 minutes). It was liking a switch got flipped.

Stories and Memories

I had the pleasure of hanging out with my good friend Ken Bole last weekend, in his “basement bar” which contains his extensive and eclectic collection of objects, souvenirs and books. What I found fascinating about the collection was that each object represented a story and a memory, and to me at least the stories and memories are what are truly memorable. The objects themselves are receipts in a sense; evidence of a life richly led.
