Some of my favorite subjects. Rusted metal, textured wood, and peeling paint!
It’s an old latch on a double door of an old shed.

I shot this in New York City back in 2013. Just one of those things that caught my eye and made me smile.

After a life of pulling and pushing and getting banged about this old tractor has retired to a field of wildflowers

We went on a road trip last week and I found this old tractor west of Buffalo N.Y. on the south shore of Lake Erie


Curious Cabin in the Woods

Curious Cabin in the Woods

My wife and I were driving down a gravel country road enjoying the scenery when out of the corner of my eye I caught sight of something very curious. It looked like a cabin but it had this exaggerated roof line and these funny bubble windows.

I quickly stopped and backed up to get a better look. Sure enough my eyes had not deceived me. I had to take a picture of this. I spent a few minutes shooting from different angles. This seemed to work best. In post processing I added a few textures and different treatments to add to the uniqueness of this curious little cabin in the woods.


Cattle Skull Gate

This shot was taken near the entrance to the Saskatoon Berry Farm in Okotoks, Alberta. It’s one of those iconic symbols of the west. I added some texture to change it up.

Doors Open Hamilton – Tip Top

On Sat. May 2 we made a quick stop in Hamilton to visit a couple of the Doors Open sites. This is the on the second floor the the former Tip Top Tailor building at 14 James St North Hamilton. The building is to be renovated soon and this floor has not been open to the public for over 35 years. I always find it interesting to explore old spaces.
