The first go in a little creative side project – shooting life as it happens, photographed and processed entirely on my iPhone, on the fly.
Norman Hardie Winery is a beautiful, small winery in Prince Edward County. Run by proprietor Norman Hardie, and his fantastic staff, NHW is producing some outstanding wines.

The Noble Pursuit pitted resolve, camaraderie and skinny tires against our home and native land and we won, not that anyone was handing out prizes for this sort of thing.

Not coincidentally, early April finds thousands of riders descending on Toronto for the National Motorcycle Show, shaking off winter dreams of open roads and eager to ride. A multidimensional show – customs, competition, auction, used bike sales, and more – it offers something for everyone who has ever been called by the open road.
