Erieau Ontario Pier
Canon 60D – 18-55 kit
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

Hamilton Ontario Skyline, in the late November fog.
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.
There is so much peace in flying at 35 thousand feet.
It’s this time when everything is out of your hands. There is nothing that you can do to control your direction or your leg room.
It forces me to let go of my constant need to be in control of my surroundings. It allows me to let go, and find some sort of comforting peace within my upright position folding tray, and pack of peanuts.
Took this satisfying wing shot while at peace.
Thanks for reading.
