Light always banishes darkness. It was true thousands of years ago, and it's true today. Chag sameach, happy Chanukah, and happy whatever-you're-celebrating. Because we all deserve inspiration, warmth and family. #ldnont #Chanukah #Hannukah #candles #light #history #cherish #it #london #ontario #canada


Woke up not only to a region covered in snow, but to social media streams crammed with complaints about it. I find it amusing given puny humans' complete powerlessness when it comes to influencing meteorology. We can predict it, model it and maybe explain a bit of the why. But we can never change it. So as I watch a Norman Rockwell-esque scene play out on the other side of the window, I find myself thinking about the fun our puppy is about to have as she rediscovers what snow is and how much she loves to a) bound through it, b) stick her little Hershey Kiss-like nose deep into it, and c) roll around in it until her brown fur turns white. Gentle suggestion for the day: Embrace the snow - and life. Because we never get enough of either. And there's no sense devoting our spirit to things we can't change, anyway. #ldnont #snow #day #storm #onstorm #weather #wx #nature #naturephotography #landscape #photography #Nikon #nikonphotography #nikon_photography #dslr #nofilter #nofilterneeded #photooftheday #instagood #monochrome #black #white #london #ontario #canada

One last look at the studio before I head for home for the night. It's been a busy, productive Sunday here, with lots of great TV being produced by some of the smartest people I know. #blessed #ldnont #ctv #ctvlondon #studio #studios #TV #tvlife #media #medialife #london #ontario #canada


I took a pause on my way out the door after an interview (watch tonight's CTV National News) because the sky seemed to be asking for a moment. It's been doing that a lot lately, and far too many times I've convinced myself I was too busy to grab the camera and remember the moment. Not this time. I stood alone in the parking lot beside the studio, awestruck by something I'd been missing far too often. Something tells me this needs to change. We're never too busy to have our breath taken away; never too busy to feel humbled by our staggeringly beautiful planet; never too busy to stop time so we can drink it all in. My only question, then, is what scene or moment will be enough to stop YOU, as well? Please do tell! #ldnont #sunset #ctv #ctvnews #ctvlondon #sun #weather #wx #cloud #clouds #painted #sky #tree #trees #silhouette #london #ontario #canada


What, you don't line your peanut M&Ms up on the table before you eat them, too? I thought this was the law. Or something #ldnont #nutrition #nutritious #breakfast #food #foodporn #sugar #peanut #junkfood #stilllife #always #shoot #london #ontario #canada
