Come one Come all! This weekend John Milleker, Michelle Barkdoll, and I will be at the Civil War Reenactment at the Living History Museum in Westminister demonstrating Wet Plate Collodion Photography. In the past we’ve gone to the reenactment to photograph the happenings (and I admit, my digital and film camera may be in attendance, to get a few pictures this year also). Love watching the battle they do in the afternoon and walk around an talk to the reenactors. It’s great fun and I encourage anyone who would consider it to come out!
So I’m a little excited about embarking on Monday on my first trip into Canada. I’ve been to the other side of Niagara Falls when I was a small child, but never further then that. Our trip includes exploring St. Paul Street, going to the Notre Dame Basilica, exploring Old Montreal, and St. Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal, exploring Quebec, Chateau Frontenac, Montmorency Falls, The Sanctuary of Saint Anne De Beaupre, and ends with a visit to the Montreal Casino. This is a bus trip through Flo’s Tours and White Star Tours, but still looking forward to sharing my pictures from the trip! I hope to get some black and white film shots of the historical parts and the natural parts of the trip, along with digital color shots of the places we go.
So I’m going to really try to be better at this blog thing…and post at least once, if not twice a week. I’m going to share my adventures (including such events as going to Myrtle Beach, trips to Ocean City, and white water rafting the New River in West Virginia) and my Interests (NASA, Airshows, Hapkido, and photography including black and white film and even exploring wet plate (ambrotypes) and Cyanotypes). Come along with me and maybe we’ll all learn something together!
