This is where I want to be. Lost in the woods for 5 hours and not stuck in a 9-5 job that I'm bored with.

Played hookey from work last week .. don't want to be here and could not handle it anymore. Drove around Toronto taking pictures. To bad someone wouldn't pay me to do this!


Beaver Lodge at Hidden Lake

Beaver Lodge at Hidden Lake, originally uploaded by AC'63.

I took 7 teenagers for a walk to the hidden lake on McLaren island. Little did I know that it would take a hour to get there, one hour at the lake rowing them around, and 3 hours lost in the bush trying to get home.


Dallas Rapids, the mouth of the French River, Georgian Bay, Ontario

My Great Grandfather Knight, and great great Grand Father Logan, stood at these rapids and fished over a hundred years ago.

With this map you can see what the mouths of the French look like. This is all glacier carved rock. We started by boat at Key River, entered the Georgian Bay at Key Harbour and and arrived at the lower Pickerel River 50 minutes later. True Georgian Bay wilderness.

Took the origional of this back in 2008 on our trip to Chicago. I had forgotten all about it, I cropped and sharpened the image and got the above. Fairly happy with it.


Deer in my backyard

Deer in my backyard, originally uploaded by AC'63.

I live on a park in what used to be North York. It's very beautiful and quite, but I just live south of a very busy and dangerous area called the Jane Finch corridor.
This is what I got to wake up to this morning.


Cedar Forest at the Gorge, edit

Sharpened the image, hightend the colours, increased the tone, stripped the colour out and then did some fine processing.. not sure which I like .. the photo taken in 2005 or the edit done in 2011
