I am so happy to be sharing with you all some photos of my recent fundraising project. On April 30th my cousin Derek and I embarked on a cross Canada cycling trip from Port Hardy, British Columbia to St. John’s, Newfoundland. A really big undertaking I know. I decided to dedicate our trip to 2 friends, neighbours,amazing people who were affected greatly by brain tumours. My friend Bob Vangoethem passed away last summer from a tumour and Mrs. John McFeggan is a current survivor and 10 year fighter. Derek and I have managed to raise over $10 000 for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada as well as so much awareness for this society. Being the photographer that I am, my DSLR Canon 5D Mark II had to ride along in my saddle bag and capture this wondrous country we call home. I really soaked up the people, the places, celebrations, and natural landscape peddle by peddle and have posted some photos here to give you a glimpse. The trip went very well,and are back home now and adjusting and settling back into our regular lives.
Also August 23-27 (12-5pm) my friend Sean and I will be holding an exhibition and sale at The Arts Project in London, Ontario (203 Dundas Street) showcasing our work from two very different areas we have traveled. The exhibit is called “Two Worlds: Streets of Europe vs Bush of South Africa” and will feature various photographs we have taken in these two amazing locations.
