Me, My Dad & My Hawkeye ♥

This tried & true Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash camera was given to me by my Brother who acquired it somehow from our Dad. Dad picked it up in the late 1950’s as a young, Dutch immigrant guy living & farming in Southern Alberta. Seeing that I love this camera so much and tote it around faithfully from country to country, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite Brownie Hawkeye photos from around the world.

I ♥ my Dad to bits and he’s going to be 70 soon, so in his honour, I’d like to show you a very cool picture of him from his younger days!
(Not taken with the Hawkeye unfortunately.)

PS – Recently Kodak asked me to do a guest blog post about my travels and my little piece of Kodak history.  Have a look!

Home on the Prairies

I’ve been relaxing in Burnaby for a good part of the summer which always happens to be my longest stretch at home and in the office. With fall business travel to Brazil, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Turkey, Germany and Switzerland impending (no joke), I have not wanted to go much further than the boundaries of Metro Vancouver. However, with the recent passing of a very dear friend, I headed to Alberta. And Saskatchewan.

I usually find trips to Alberta to be somewhat nostalgic and cathartic (because it’s home) and boring (because of those long, hot, flat highways). So as any photographer would, I took the opportunity to use some of that time, prairie sunshine and pent-up emotion to snap a few pictures. The shots below were taken near Leader, Saskatchewan where Doug was laid to rest. It’s been a sad week and I miss him a lot more than before. I’m sure he would really appreciate the prairie pictures below.
The light and colours were amazing that day; big, blue skies and gorgeous yellow canola fields. Maybe I’ll reprocess these images in colour someday when it seems more fitting.
