MMXVII | Canada 150, The Tower of Victory and Peace

On New Year’s Eve my wife and I took a moment at 20:17 in Ottawa to enjoy the Tower of Victory and Peace at Canada’s Parliament, and reflect upon Canada’s 150th year ahead.   With snow falling, fireworks ascending, and the national anthem in play, O Canada, then and there we saw how in deed we are the True North strong and free…Des plus brillants exploits.   #Canada150

Sunshine and Sunflowers | Photography Fun with my Beautiful Wife

Stéphanie, Sunshine, and Sunflowers – Life is Good!

My beautiful wife glowing with sunshine in a spectacular field of sunflowers near Sainte-Agathe-Des Monts, Québec.  Stéphanie and I were on our way to Mont-Tremblant to connect  with “Le P’tit Train du Nord” bike path when we saw this beautiful opportunity.    Photography Motto #54892:  Never be shy or hesitant to safely bring your car to a stop on the side of a rural highway,  and seize the moment to take a countryside photo!   Seize the photography moments as they come, rather than “on the way back.”

Labelle, Québec

If you ever find yourself in Labelle, Québec (A.K.A. in La Belle Province), then I would highly recommend you check out La Gare Auberge Restaurant Bar. Hands down (or up as the case may be) this place serves amazing food. On the menu for me was simply the best homemade style fish ‘n chips I’ve had all summer, and the local charm was pretty nice too! A postcard destination for sure!

Atomic Rooster | 2014 Cock Show

Hi everyone, with great excitement I’ve entered the 2014 Cock Show contest, hosted by Atomic Rooster Bar and Bistro in downtown Ottawa.   Next to promoting the celebration of rooster inspired art, my submission allows me to honour the memory of my late maternal grandfather – a master welder – who created the metal rooster featured in this photo.   As for the metal bird, it now stands ever so proudly in my living room, and without any hesitation it would be the one item I would risk my life to save if my house ever caught fire (along with my camera of course, 😉 ). So, if you’re free on Tuesday evening, feel free to join me at Atomic for a vernissage, or check out the exhibit which runs from September 21st to October 26th.
