OneWalk to Conquer Cancer (Sticky)

Posted 2017.07.11 9.52 in Family/Friends

On September 9th, I will Walk united with thousands of survivors and supporters who have fundraised and trained to participate. Together we will march 25km through Toronto, making history in the fight to conquer cancer.

Cancer took my father, Hugh Maksylewich, in 2014 and I’m walking for him. He was one of my best friends, and a tremendous influence on my life. I miss him every day, and I want to help fight the disease that took him from me, to help spare other people from going through what he went through.

I’m asking you to join me today by making a donation to my fundraising goal. Through the support of OneWalk, we will help The Princess Margaret make life better for those facing cancer.

My goal is to raise $1500.00 for this fight, and I need your help to get there.

Together, we can conquer cancer in our lifetime!

Some More Pics

This past weekend there was snow, but the weekend before that, there was not.

I took a walk across the local cricket pitch and around the block, and shot some pics as I went. I was using my Olympus XA-3 with a roll of long-expired “Klick Max” film. It’s some store-brand that I’d never heard of, that I’d acquired at some point over the past year.

I found when developing it that the colours had an interesting shift to them. A bit more blue, a bit more red. (Or a bit less green?) Either way, the effects were unexpected but I rather like how some of them came out.

Until the past week or so, I had not been taking a lot of pictures (as evidenced by the lack of photo posts here). I’m trying to keep up with it, and I have a couple more rolls of film to process yet. I do expect to take more pictures, and hopefully as the weather gets better I will get out more with my cameras.
