You might notice there are a few broken images in recent posts. My server had a hiccup, and I need to re-upload everything after September. Oops!
Bear with me while I get things sorted.
As I was doing some test with the colour gels, I couldn’t help but go for the lame joke ;D

Only the best of fake sunbeams for Marty.
I’m writing up ads for Dad’s old film cameras and getting strangely emotional. This one especially, the Canon AE-1, holds a lot of memories for me. I had automatic film cameras growing up, basic things so we could document our silly games. But this one was the first Real Camera I ever used.
I borrowed it for high school photo class and suddenly the world looked different. The distance provided by the lens allowed me to see things in a different light. This camera signalled the official start point of an obsession. It’s a little hard to let it go, but hopefully, it will spark something in its next owner too.
Much has been happening. I’ve been coming and going so often I feel dizzy! So, until I carve out time later this week (I hope), have a photo from my visit to Kamloops in August (a month ago!). The one clearer evening without much forest fire smoke, and the moon shining through it all.
August sunsets are warm and golden, and worth traipsing through the itchy grass for a shot.
