As anyone who knows us will tell you, we love cars and trucks.  Especially old and classic ones.  In the spring, if the snow ever decides to stop, we’ll pull our beloved 1987 Corvette convertible out of the garage, get her detailed up and do a full on photo shoot of her.  In the meantime, […]

This has been such a great series to bring to you and the response has been incredible!  We thank everyone so very much for all your kindness & support, and it’s with a tinge of sadness that we wrap up this great series today on Hatley Park Castle.  Today we are going to take a […]

OK, I might be having too much fun with this series this week!  I think I’ve mentioned before that I love turrets, and any castle worth it’s keep definitely has some of those.  Today we come around from the back of the castle to the front. This image is a 13 bracket HDR image.  The […]

We’re kicking off a brand new series titled “A Toad In The Turret” here this week.  This series showcases a wonderful castle that eventually became the Royal Roads Military College.  The castle was designed and built by the Dunsmuir family in the early 1900’s.  This family started in the coal industry and eventually became a […]

Today we wrap up our series of the active demolition in progress.  As you read this blog, this entire lot is vacant and will remain so until the new development begins. The dust flies in the air, the excavator is in mid bite…. the roof and framing are now really just a loose bunch of […]

We continue to explore an active demolition today with 3 new HDR photos of the site.  We will be wrapping this series up tomorrow and we are thrilled with the response we’ve received with the series so far.  Sincerely hoping that you all are really enjoying this! As the activities progressed, the scene began to […]

We have a special bonus post tonight, dedicated to my best friend.  This is a special building to us, and this is a special photo of it.  I took it a few weeks back and have been holding onto it waiting for just the right time when I could do it justice with a fitting […]
