Babe is Back, it Must be Spring

I didn’t have a chance to write up anything about getting my camper out of storage other than a quick post to Facebook. Let me fix that. Late last year we got together with our friends from Turbo Training Marilyn and Michael to see their new place and have dinner together. Yes, the same delightful …

2014 Buses at Bon Echo

What a fabulous weekend! The weather was perfect, the colours are almost at their best and the turnout was good. Previous years have been cold or windy or both (you can read my 2011 entry for a little look into that!) but this year made up for all the past weekends. There was no real …

I’m In The Mood For Music

This extended week, from last weekend until the end of next weekend, is a break from photography and a shift to music. So far so good too! The weekend behind was highlighted by the Greenbelt Harvest Festival which is the brainchild of Daniel Lanois. While only four years old it has a reputation for having …

It’s Nice To Be Back

Back at Mont Sainte Anne, back to shooting another big event, back to camping. And back on the road after Monday’s misstep. Back to camping in a parking lot too! I had arranged camping in advance with the media relations person and she made sure things were taken care of. Unfortunately the camping area hadn’t …

Mariposa 2014 – Day 1

This music festival started over 50 years ago and I’ve never been to it. When it started, people like Gordon Lightfoot and Bob Dylan were just finding their stride. And I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know nearly enough about the who’s and what’s that make up the history of the festival. …

I Never Though It Would Be This Complicated…

I decided to install some upgrades & replace some worn-out parts on my camper, nothing really big but all quite good. The reality is that I always knew it would challenge me and push me past comfort zones. I didn’t expect some of the twists that came my way today though. I’ve handled all the …

Moab Trilogy Book 3: The Trip Back to Toronto

 When I was trying to decide how to write this final book of the trilogy, I started by thinking that it would be the least interesting to readers. It’s certainly just as full of adventure as the previous two books, in different ways though. So I’ll just keep writing and you can make of it …

On the road to Moab – day 2

It’s either 9:30pm or 10:30 pm, I haven’t set clocks so I’m not sure which time is right for where I’m camped tonight (which is the home of the Jesse James wax museum in Stanton MO, don’t ask). Regardless of which clock is right, I’m enjoying sitting here in a t-shirt… the weather has improved  …

Another countdown: the end of my first contract experience

I’ve now officially let it be known that I won’t renew my IT contract, which ends in mid-March. With just over a month left I’ve started thinking through the steps I need to complete to wrap it up professionally and to what comes next. It’s exciting, I suppose that is part of the nature of …

My View

Looking east toward downtown Toronto, getting to watch as plane take off and land. I’ve spent time in the area when the Midweek club was holding their criterium series on Tuesday nights (and while I was still racing). Now I’m seeing it as the folks who’ve worked up in that area (known as Creekside) have …
