In the last couple of years I’ve been having some difficulty getting excited about my photography. Read more “Looking For a Vision (and Vincent Collection)”
I spent two relaxing days helping to sort wood, stoke fires and make dinner.
It was beautiful.
As you can see, they have a skidder. Read more “Northern Green in Winter”

Been a little caught up in other things this week. And will be in the weeks to come. Hope to keep up with my Friday photo, though. Read more “Solstice and Almost Super Moon”
We had a flurry of snow a couple of days ago and I was hoping to catch the flakes as they flew over downtown so I rushed to the Simcoe Street parking garage to get above the city. Read more “Snow Clouds Over Peterborough”
Hurricane Sandy. Devastating in Cuba and Haiti and destructive across the eastern American seaboard. Here in Peterborough we had some strong winds and days and days of rain. Read more “Hurricane Sandy Swallows the Sun”
I visited my mother in London this week. It’s been very dry there this summer, with little rain and lawns and gardens that are struggling. Most of the days this summer have looked like this. Beautiful for sitting on the porch, not so great for growing things.
I’ve also recently had a couple of opportunities to check out rehearsals of The Burgess Shale’s Eight Days Lost project. Read more “Blue Suburban Skies and Burgess Shale”
Waiting for rain. The province is experiencing an early drought. There are fires in Timmins. Rain clouds, like just to right of Keene Rd, off in the distance there, keep passing over and teasing us with the promise of relief. Even as I type this there’s that feeling in the air.

We need a good soaking.
Driving past Curve Lake this week I saw the ice fishing huts and thought that with all the warm weather and thaw we’ve been having they probably won’t be up for much longer.

Earlier in the week we had a fresh snow followed by a warm thaw. Read more “Curve Lake Ice Fishing and February Thaw”
