The whole shootin’ match.

First New Year’s Day in Montréal

Now that we are living in Montréal, and experiencing our first winter here, I need to get some gloves that are functional (and warmish) for shooting with a DSLR on cold days. At sub zero degrees centigrade the hands get cold very quickly–especially those of this recent coastal California transplant. For now, the iPhone is quick and easy. Here’s me and Maggie on New Year’s Day at Parc Maissonneuve.

Niagara Falls in November

We’re now living in Montreal! The long distance, international move was brutal, but also amazing and eventful. Unfortunately, opportunities to take photographs during the cross country drive, other than quick iPhone snaps, didn’t happen–except during the little side trip we made to Niagara Falls (on the Canadian side).

Moving to Montreal

After 15 years here in Petaluma, our homestead will be changing in November. We’ll be driving to Montreal, our stuff will be traveling in a big ass truck, and hopefully we’ll arrive at the new digs at about the same time and everything will work according to plan. 3000 miles, another country… OK, I’m being optimistic. Stay tuned…

The image is of my Canon EOS M on the lazy table on a glorious summer day. I converted it to black and white with Nik (Google) Silver Efex Pro 2 and layered in the red in Photoshop.
