Back in NB for another visit, which isn’t the ideal time to be in the maritimes, but am making the most of my visit (as always). Spent Saturday afternoon at the Clay Cafe creating some art for friends and “family,” and the evening capturing a few shots of St. Thomas University. With the evening being capped off with a visit from the worlds cutest puppy!
Taking photos is so much more fun when your model is the cutest little 11-month old imaginable; especially when she knows how to smile for the camera! Baby Hayden was a little shy of her “Uncle Mikey” when I first arrived on Friday, but after a weekend of Xbox games, lounging on the couch, and Super Bowl excitement, it was time to get the camera out! And as you can tell, this 11-month old isn’t afraid of the camera!
Being from a very small town in rural New Brunswick I am incredibly proud of where I come from! And am equally proud of my town’s only claim to fame; the McAdam Railway Station! I went up to the station after being in Fredericton for the weekend so I could get a nice nighttime shot as a Christmas present for my aunt (and because it was calling for rain for the next few days). It was incredibly cold, but my patience paid off and I managed to capture these two photos; and I’m so happy that I surprisingly caught a small glimpse of the Northern Lights. Needless to say, my aunt was very happy with her Christmas present (especially because I also managed to locate the perfect frame to go with it).
As always I spent some time in Fredericton, NB over the holidays so I could visit friends and reminisce about my university days. A close friend was playing in an ultimate frisbee tournament on campus, so I decided it would be a great opportunity to practice my skills at capturing some action-shots. The lighting in the facility was quite dim, so I was forced to turn my ISO up (which I generally don’t like to do), but I was left with no other option. Nonetheless, I’m satisfied with the result!
