A couple of digital paintings I created using photos I took as source images.

Old 35mm Photos

I recently purchased an Epson V370 Photo scanner that is capable of scanning 35mm negatives and slides. I’m quite pleased with the results.

Here are a few I’ve converted so far…

Experiment with Black & White

I initially took this photo a few weeks ago while vacationing in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The photo is of the “Boardwalk in Inverness”. I liked the general composition but thought is lacked something… So I converted it to b&w.

2016 Atlantic Nationals

I had the extreme pleasure of attending this years annual Atlantic Nationals Car Showin Moncton, New Brunswick. It is the largest car event in Atlantic Canada and one of the largest in Canada. There were close to 2,000 cars this year…

1928 Ford Roadster pickup & 1931 Ford Pickup hot rods 

Show attendant directing driver of 1931 Ford to a parking spot while the driver of the 28 Roadster looks on. It is quite evident these cars are influenced by the traditional style hot rods of HAMB and the Rodder’s Journal magazine.

2016 Atlantic Nationals, Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada – Friday July 8th downtown Moncton.

Crossing Guard’s Lunch Break

I usually do not take candid photos of people in public but sometimes the subject matter is just too good to pass up. This was one of those occasions. During one of my lunch hour walks at work, I came across a crossing guard taking his lunch break in the Hydrostone neighborhood of Halifax, June 2015.

Last year I purchased an used Sigma 18-125 lens from Adorama and it gave new life to my beloved but aging Olympus E620 which had been sitting idle since purchasing my two Nikons – D3300 & D7100….
