I know I used to post a few times a week. I’m sorry I don’t anymore.
You see, when I had absolutely nothing and felt like a total failure without a purpose I stumbled across a camera.This camera took me on a journey of self discovery. I learned things about my abilities and my passions. I found a new perspective and new outlook through my current perspective. I learned, I grew, and I expressed the things I saw and the things I experienced. I pushed myself for more and grew a whole lot.
That was 3 years.
Today, I am a totally different person than I was then. I become what I pursued and dreamnt bigger dreams because of it. I still use that camera everyday. It allows me to see.
I started a non profit organization to help others like me. To help people who felt/feel like me. To inspire humans to love each other and express them selves.
I owe a lot of this to my camera and to this blog.
It was here I was able to express. We all deserve to be able to express ourselves.
I’m @npegg and I have a camera.
Wasn’t really much for waterfalls. I mean, I get that they are awesome, but I just never felt a desire to go and photograph them. The other day I was feeling kinda down, so I asked Sarah if she wanted to go on a photography adventure. She said “yes” and that made me super happy.
luckily there is a cool waterfall liek 3 mins from her house. So we went there. Albion falls, in Hamilton Ontario.
My goal was to shoot a timelapse. As I’ve already shot a long exposure here before and it came out purple thanks to my 3 dollar ND filters.
I started from the bottom (like drake)
Then tried the top.
Taking roughly 20 min time lapses at each. 4 second intervals.
Had a few hours to kill in Galt Ontario.
Walked around with a 40mm 2.8 Pancake attached to a Canon 60D
Galt has, for a while now, been the subject of alot of cameras. A few horror films have been shot there. And it seems everyone and their 4 year old wants to instagram the place. Painters and poets also seem to flock there. I guess I don’t blame them. It is a cool glimpse into the “once was, now isn’t” book.
The cloud texture made a cool backdrop for some silhouetting in post.
so, here are some eerie shots of old Galt Ontario

Today, I turned down a Job opportunity.
I don’t actually have a real job, so that was probably a bad idea.
I turned down 35k a year. ( which is significant in comparison to my 12k a year I’m making now)
I guess, I’m just not into money.
Maybe I’m into funding however.
Money is a tool to help you get other tools, so you can accomplish a goal.
Money is not a net that catches you when everything falls apart.
Money is a mirage.
Maybe life is a mirage too.
Anyways, I said no to an opportunity that was big. However, by doing that I through myself blind into something much, much bigger.
