I wish I was going back again this year, it was so nice! Me and Victor went by car with my friend Zara to go camping for a few days last August. Both me and Victor fell in love and have decided at some point when we are financially able we’d love to go there every summer and just spend a few months enjoy the air and ocean. It was so beautiful. Most of these double exposures are taken at one of many graveyards we passed along the road and at the north tip of PEI (the lighthouse and ocean shots). Hope to go back soon!

Prince Edward Island in Polaroids

Polaroid003 (1024x807)

My Polaroid Colorpack is turning into my go-to camera now a days, it is just so gratifying when you get the distance accurately and the shot comes out perfect and crisp. The colors it comes up with are really wonderful too. Even the shots that don’t quiet turn out and a little fuzzy and out of focus still make me smile. I am really excited to convert my other land camera soon so I can try it out and compare. It’s so nice having an instant camera I am finding, I actually ran out of all my film on this trip and cannot wait to get some more. Last moments of Prince Edward Island from swimming in the ocean with Victor to checking out Charlottetown, finding a lighthouse and hanging out at the campsite. Enjoy.

Prince Edward Island Day 3: Horses, Saying Goodbye and New Brunswick.

Today marks the last day I’ll be sharing my photos from Prince Edward Island. This is from our last few hours in PEI to our long and tedious drive home through New Brunswick. It was such an amazing trip and it was great to finally see 2 provinces in Canada that I had never been too. At some point on our trip we reached a turn off for Nova Scotia (another province and if we had time we could have drove 20minutes just to say we had been there. Haha. All in all it was really fun and probably the best moment of the summer for me as I love a good road trip. The tree near our house is starting to turn orange so I am all excited again for the start of Fall – I will have plenty of non-summer adventures to show you too coming in October. If you missed the previous weeks about PEI, my little round up is here starting with Day 1, Day 2 part I & part II, the first half of Day 3, and the special photo shoot of Zara. So let’s get started, last week we end with the north tip of PEI and headed down the coast again towards the bridge and we found….

Prince Edward Island Day 3: Camping and the North Point

I am getting so close to the end of my Prince Edward Island series, today I am sharing the beginning of Day 3. It was such a crazy trip since we basically drove almost all of Day 1 and Day 3 as well. We did stick around in PEI for a bit longer then we anticipated because I don’t think neither me, Zara or Victor wanted to leave. So we chilled out in the morning and did our own things before checking out of the campsite and getting into the car to checking out the north point mid-morning. There were so many photos to go through so it’s another 2 partier so look out for it next week. There will be a double post next week because I realize it’s been all about PEI this month and maybe you’re a little bored of it so don’t worry next week is the second half and little something something extra. I have work still midnight tonight and am not looking forward to it so wish me luck and I hope you are ready for Friday because I have some amazing baby photos of Butter to share with you.

Camping and cuddles! I woke up to watch the sunset – its was underwhelming and since I had to crawl over Victor to reach my camera I just went back to bed. whamp whamp.

Seriously, the view from the tent was amazing. I spent an hour with the side door of our tent open and just watched the sun and the ocean – it was so relaxing.

Zara in Wonderland: Prince Edward Island

prince edward island (35)

Zara in Wonderland is a series of portraits of my friend Zara as the model. This addition was shot in Prince Edward Island on a beach and wharf we found exploring. She is standing as the sunsets in front of the Atlantic Ocean. We always end up on the most random adventures together and love exploring new places together. For more of my Zara in Wonderland series, check out the previous sets here, here, here, and here!

Prince Edward Island Day 2: Lighthouse and Sunsets

More photos from my amazing adventure to Prince Edward Island. We are taking off right after the end of the last weeks Day 2 (if you haven’t checked it out click here). We start our journey in New Glasgow, PEI and head to find a lighthouse and found so much more, check it out below.

Prince Edward Island Addition

self portrait   For today’s Self Portrait Sunday I wanted to share some photos from my summer trip to Prince Edward Island. I didn’t take too many but the last morning we were there while I was standing in the ocean enjoying a quiet moment by myself I took a few. I grew up by the Pacific Ocean and use to spend pretty much a month solid of the summer on the beach every day for hours so I always feel more myself when I am near the ocean or in it. I didn’t want my hair to be wet all day so I didn’t swim (which was too bad) but I had a lot of fun. Of course only after I took a few photos did I realize I had soot all over my face from cooking breakfast on the campfire – hahaha. Oh the beauty of camping!

self portrait (3) self portraitAnd one from the night before when we went to the beach to watch the sunset. It was really magical and I did a mini photo-shoot with Zara and Victor that I cannot wait to show you guys. Have a great Sunday!

Day 2 in Prince Edward Island: Charlottetown and Graveyards

graveyardToday is a continuation of last week’s adventure in Prince Edward Island, starting with our second day there. It was our only full day there and we managed to drive all over the island and see lots of local life. Since I have the tendency to take so many photos Day 2 will be broke up over the next 2 weeks. I am excited to show how beautiful the island is and today’s post has some shots of their capital Charlottetown and the countryside.

Prince Edward Island (10)The start of the day was breakfast on the fire pit with me and Victor’s tent and the ocean in the background.  It was freezing cold until dawn when it became insanely hot so none of us got a very good sleep.

Prince Edward Island (4)It was amazing waking up right in front of the Atlantic ocean, on Vancouver Island where I grew up we have a few campgrounds that are right on the Pacific ocean too and they were always my favourite.

Day 1: Travelling to Prince Edward Island

So last weekend I got an offer from my friend Zara to go on a road trip and camp because she had wanted to go to Prince Edward Island. For those of you who don’t know Canadian geography, it’s an island/province on the east coast tip of Canada on the Atlantic Ocean just across from the province of New Brunswick. It’s roughly a 12hour drive from the Montreal. I was really excited because the farthest east in Canada I have been is Quebec City and have never been to either NB or PEI before. As well I am a huge lover of islands (I grew up on an island) and always feel so spiritually happy being near the ocean. I really wanted to show you some of my photos from the trip so I thought I’d share them over the next few Thursdays.
