This year, as we marked the 150th anniversary of Confederation in Canada, I realized that I haven’t seen a lot of our vast country. So I spent some time looking at my husband’s photo albums from the ’90s, when he went on road trips throughout Alberta and then all the way to Ontario.
The photos were taken with a film camera and have a beautiful soft muted quality I had forgotten about. My husband remembers spending a lot of time setting up these shots because film was expensive, plus developing the pictures afterwards cost a pretty penny.
Knowing that, each photo seems like a precious jewel that my husband found along the way.
I hope you enjoy these creative glimpses of beauty in Canada.
