I’m rather fond of Rochester, New York, and really it’s not that far of a drive for me, about two and a half hours. Now in the past I’ve usually taken the I-90 in, but really the Interstate is a bit boring so I decided to switch up my route a little this time and take NY-31 from Lewiston to Rochester. And what a great drive it was! Passed through several great little towns with that wonderful late 19th early 20th century downtown buildings just starting to wake up to their Saturday. Open farm fields, lots of things to look at along the way withRead More →

Established in 1917, Highway Two stretched across the entire length of Southern Ontario. From Windsor in the west to Cornwall in the east. Today much of the highway is now ‘downloaded’ to local municipal governments, but you can still drive much of the route, however the once over 800 kilometer long highway has been reduced to a small 1 kilometer length that is still signed as Highway 2. I had the day free to travel to Morrisburg for the 200th anniversary reenactment of the Battle of Crysler’s Farm (War of 1812) so I decided to take a chance and drive a part of his historicRead More →

Agh, I’ve been remiss on posting more from the Photostock Event back in June of this year and for that I apologize, but things went straight down the tubes after photostock and I’ve been running at a million kilometers per hour since, and still haven’t stopped. But anyways I’ll get some more photostock up here over this week. Anyways onto the actual content. The M119 is a unique roads, it’s clasified as a state highway but is far from it, a national historic senic route runs from just outside the village of Harbor Springs to Cross Village, at Photostock I took the oppurtunity to driveRead More →

Hidden behind a hospital and a massive shopping mall a tiny road dead ends at a park. You can still see the old light standards continuing down. I had some time to kill on a Saturday afternoon so I decided to stop and check it out, having a camera with me I naturally brought it along for the hike. Down at the base of the road I was drawn out onto one the side trails that ran along a river bank, following it around I noticed something in the distance, it looked like a bridge, but not a bridge one would expect, it looked likeRead More →

There are times when I look at my shots and think to myself, these photos are why I still shoot with film. It was the perfect day again (if only we could have had the weather a week later…but anyways). The sky was a brilliant blue, the weather was warm, it was the perfect day for a BBQ, friends, a beautiful setting, and of course ‘chrome film. ‘chrome film? Why, slide film of course, Fujichrome to be exact, Velvia. Delicious, Delicious Velvia. Fuji’s answer to Kodachrome, and E-6 process also. So I found myself in beautiful Welland Ontario, I have to say I love smallRead More →

So I’m weird (if you haven’t already guessed) and one of my more interesting goals is to drive in their entirty as many King’s Highways as I can. I have already done Hwy 7. But Hwy 6 I have been meaning to do for a while having done a vast majority of the Highway, but it was the section between Hamilton and Port Dover. So here it is, the town at the end of The King’s Highway Six, Port Dover.Read More →
