This early morning photograph displays colourful row houses along Duckworth Street in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. The title of the image is taken from a well known business – For the Record, It’s Fred’s – seen here in the foreground.
This photograph depicts a section of an old house, typical of that found in Newfoundland and Labrador before the turn of the century and during the heyday of the fishery.
An old shed from a past era is bathed in soft evening light on a cold winter day.
Greenspond, Boavista Bay and a large iceberg in the bay.
Greenspond, Newfoundland: a step back in time.
Architectural lines dominate in this interior shot of an old, former church building.
And old, chrome door knob and skeleton key provide an interesting photo subject during the high, harsh summer sun .
Subtle light illuminates the beach, fishing stage and boat enough to balance the exposure nicely with the pre-dawn sky. The original image is recorded on 35mm film.

Lost in the Fog – A community and its church are enveloped in a fog bank. From the intensity of the light dome (fog), the sun is not to far above! Rather than pick up an exposure reading of the fog (because of its brightness and intensity), I choose to meter off the more acurate – closer to 18% gray – in the bottom right area of the photography off the water.
Old relics displayed in a window presents a journey of centuries past.
Part of an old door latch – commonly referred to in Newfoundland as a Hapse – drips with rust across the white painted door.
Behind the old door lies North America’s most dominate advancement of the 20th century: the communications centre that would tie North America to Europe via the first trans-atlantic cable.
In this colourful photo, a sheep munches on grass in the front yard of a rural Newfoundland house.
A homemade, wooded rowboat, painted bright red reflects nicely in the still blue water of the late afternoon sun.
The stern of the Gloucester 23 glows in the morning sun on day two of my photo shoot (pssst: my feet are still cold!)
The old, painted wooden siding on this dwelling has seen better days.
A brown shed with an interesting green roof and picket fence.
This old house, meticulously maintained to reflect old world charm, exemplifies the past of outport Newfoundland.
