On labour day this year I was invited out on MrCool’s family’s boat to go out on Lake Ontario for the Canadian International Air Show that takes place over Toronto, Ontario. It’d been years since I’d been to the show, and I’d never watched it from the lake before. More over, I’ve never shot with a telephoto lens while on a boat either, it turned out to be quite a challenge.
This weekend a group of friends and myself decided to go urban exploring at a former P.O.W. camp just east of Toronto outside of Bowmanville. The camp is referred to as Camp 30.
The last time I was at Spencer Gorge Wilderness Area, it was a surprisingly warm day in the middle of winter. I took my motorcycle and Tsuru no Yakata’s Horo figure there for some photos. People thought I was a bit nuts riding my sport bike in the winter, but hey it was 11°C! Kind of similar this time around, except it was much warmer, not winter, and I spent hours there capturing sunset. Oh and there were leaves on the trees! I guess the only similar bit was I brought Horo again (and Alice) and rode a motorcycle.
On Tuesday I decided it was about time I visited Fairplay, Colorado, the real South Park. I’d been to Colorado four times now and still hadn’t visited, and last year I actually passed right by it on my way to Weston Pass but had no idea at the time. So I went.
Despite having been in Colorado now for two weeks already, I’ve barely done anything. I’ve taken a couple cruises through the foot hills, but not taken a single photo until yesterday when Gibwar and myself took our girls up the 14er known as Mt Evans. You may recall I rode up it last year as well.
Yesterday I went out for a little ride on the motorcycle to find Ontario’s last historical covered bridge, in West Montrose. Well, it’s definitely there, but that wasn’t not the highlight of the ride.
It’s been almost two weeks since I arrived back home to On-terrible (Ontario) from a recent trip to British Columbia. Like Colorado, I wish I lived there, everything is gorgeous, even when it’s foggy, cloudy, and cold, but not cold enough to snow. As you’d probably expect, I took Horo along with me for some photos, what you might not have expected was I brought along her new friend Alice. Whom I’ve yet to post about as she arrived shortly before I left for the trip, but more on her in another post I suppose. Continue reading British Columbia
