Oliver Turns 4!
Oliver turned 4 years old today. We had a lovely birthday party for him at Point Pleasant Park. Brittany organized a face painter and a balloon artist, both who were very talented (though the boys all just wanted ‘light savers’, probably the easiest thing in her repertoire). She also made a Hulk pinata which turned […]
Night Sky Photography Field Trip
I headed out tonight for a Night Sky Photography Field Trip with the Camera Club of Hilton Head, led by Zach Grether. It was one of the colder nights of our stay here in Hilton Head, so we didn’t stay out too long, but there was a clear sky and a large group of participants.
Almost Photographed the Northern Lights
There were some amazing photos taken of the northern lights which were visible in Nova Scotia, these are not two of them (you can see some at this link though).
Cottage life with Gabriel and Oliver
Our Kline Street Kin offered to let Brittany and I use their cottage this past weekend. Needless to say we jumped at the chance. It was the first time they boys have spent any real time in the woods (at least where they were old enough to enjoy it), and it was also the first […]
Arduino Powered igus DryLin Camera Slider
I enjoy the technology of photography as much as I enjoy the process and the results. I think this actually limits the quality of my photography because I don’t have as many brain cycles for thinking about the image. This post shows some of the details of another example of this. Camera sliders are becoming […]
Versailles and Rouen
Here are some more photos taken as we stopped in at Versailles after renting a car and hitting the open road. We were on our way to Rouen, where we didn’t have a hotel booked, in advance. We ended up staying in a reasonable hotel that happened to be right outside where we parked our […]
Paris almost Seven Years Later
It his hard to believe, but it was almost seven years ago that Brittany and I went to Paris last and got engaged. Actually, if you look at the old photos and see how skinny I am, it’s not that hard to believe. Paris was our second stop after Iceland (see Iceland Day One and […]
Iceland Day Two
Our second day in Iceland involved a 3 hour ATV trip as well as several hours at the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa. We had a bit of time to kill prior to our ATV tour and our guide suggested we try out a local coffee shop, Cafe Bryggjan. The coffee shop was filled with historic […]
Iceland Day One
This is the first of a series of photo posts from our trip to Iceland, Paris, Rouen, Bruges, Amsterdam and Delft. This entire trip came about as a day dream of heading off on a trip without the boys. As I write this, having arriving back in Halifax, the boys are causing absolute chaos in […]
Oliver’s 2nd Brithday Party
Brittany once again put together a wonderful Birthday party. This year the was face painting, carnival themed food (popcorn, cotton candy, hot dogs) balloons and pony rides. It was a beautiful sunny day and the grandparents had the boys the night before so Brittany and I could get everything setup the night before and that […]
Gabriel Turns Three!
Gabriel had his 3rd birthday party today with family and friends. The day was tremendously successful, with Brittany planning a really fun event, with a homemade cake, cupcakes and turtle chocolates, and treat bags for the little ones. Ray’s Reptiles provided the entertainment and education for the day, which was fun for both the adult […]
