Canada Day has come and gone but I finally got a chance to go through all the photos from that day. We started off by going to Old Fort William which I could honestly spend a whole day photographing. We ended up only going for a couple hours but it was plenty of time to walk around take lots of great photos. Not only were there a lot of people walking around, there are endless buildings to go into, each having there own unique personality. I would say my favourite moment there was in the stables. There were goats, roosters, sheep and a few other types of animals. I came away with some fun shots, one of the best ones being a sheep getting sheared.
Before we knew it, it was time to go. After dropping off the kids we decided to head downtown. It was still early in the afternoon but there was actually a huge car show going on which we knew nothing about until our friend Cora let us know. We just caught the last few minutes of it but I was still able to come away some good shots.
After working up quite the thirst and appetite we headed on over to Gargoyles, a local restaurant. The meal was great and I actually captured a few more good photos there, particularly the Gargoyle wearing a red tie. Once we were done we headed home to rest up a bit before going back downtown for the fireworks. My goal this year for the fireworks was to try and do a time-lapse. This was my first one and I have yet to process it but we will see how it turns out. I ended up getting a little gorilla pod which actually worked quite well with the Fuji X-T1 and 16mm combo. Perhaps I will do another post with that time-lapse if it actually turns out.
One thing I did try since I had my little tripod out was a long exposure of the people leaving the fireworks. I don't usually do long exposure photography but I think it actually turned out kind of cool. For all these photos the Fuji X-T1 performed admirably. The lenses I used were the 16mm and 35mm. As usual, I think for almost all of them I just used the jpg's with the Chrome preset and processed them a bit with Lightroom. Thanks for viewing!
