28 / 52 weeks.. GalileeĀ 

Spent a day down in Galilee this week, Narragansett, Rhode Island. Loaded a roll of ilfordpanf50 into the Hassey and put on a yellow filter and did some walking on this very warm day. Couldn’t wait to get home and develop this roll … I don’t know if it was me or the roll… but…

52:500c – 52 Weeks, 52 Photos

So here we are, at the finish line again, it was a rocky year, much more than my past several projects, well 400TX:365 had a full switch out of a camera, as did 52:320TXP, but I almost stopped this project, like full stop, end of line. I also made a point each week I would…

52:500c – Week 50 – Burlington Races

For a city so close to where I live, I have never spent much time photographing Burlington, Ontario. And that’s even with one of my favourite camera stores in the province located there and some family. Actually, the reason I was in Burlington was for a family Christmas celebration. Taking some time beforehand to visit…

52:500c – Week 48 – Steel City Blues

Hamilton has changed a lot since I first started photographing the city, that was ten years ago with a Minolta DiMAGE Z2 and a Minolta X-7a. Back when I could visit three or four abandoned buildings right in the downtown before hitting up National Pizza at midnight after a successful trip. Those days are long…

52:500c – Week 47 – Finding Nemo

Nope, we’re not at Toronto’s Ripley’s Aquarium, plus I don’t think a 25-Speed film would work well in the space. And while this post will be devoid of lost clownfish on animated adventures, it does have one of my favourite short hikes in my area, and I got to share it with my favourite person,…

52:500c – Week 46 – Distant Voices

Memory is a funny thing. Crieff Hills Community has always been a place of memory for me. I first visited Crieff in 2003 when I helped build an outdoor amphitheater. That same year I joined the executive of the Presbyterian Young People’s Society which held their leadership retreats at Crieff where we would plan out…

52:500c – Week 45 – High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of Wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there I’ve chased the shouting wind along,…

52:500c – Week 44 – Disillusionment

I had come across Pottsville, Pennsylvania by accident. I was heading down to Gettysburg back in March and my GPS took me on this weird little route. Right through coal country. So I got to see such places as Ashland, Centralia, but it was Pottsville that drew my attention, mostly because I didn’t drive through…

52:500c – Week 43 – Make No Little Plans

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistency. Remember…

52:500c – Week 42 – Royal City

Guelph, Ontario. Not a name of a city that you would think of being related to “Royal” but there it is. Guelph’s downtown is a unique one in Ontario as well and one that I’ve been wanted to include in a ’52’ project since the second one I did. But it never materialized so here…
