I normally steer clear of politics in my blog, but this tweet from Greta was just too funny not to save for posterity.

Snowstorms. Pandemics. These are supposed make you stay home and not go out. But not everone has that luxury; they have jobs to get to […]

It’s about time

After one of the least snowy starts to winter in recent memory, we finally got a decent dump of snow today in Ottawa. There’s nothing […]


In addition to the occasional blog post, in 2021 I’m also working on a 365 photo-a-day project as well as a “100 X” project.

About Me

My name is Eric DeLorme, and I live in Ottawa, Ontario. I’m a father, a husband, a son, a cook, a cyclist, a traveller (on hold for now!), and a full-time IT professional. I’m also a photographer, but just for fun.

Photography is a way for me to exercise my right brain and get all creative and expressive, which isn’t something that comes easily to me in other media. I love music, but I can’t carry a tune or play an instrument. I love painting, drawings, etchings, and sketches… but I can’t draw a straight line or a round circle to save my life.

Photography—especially digital photography—checks all the boxes: cool gadgets, computer time with some great editing apps (mostly Capture One these days), websites, blogs… it’s this geek’s paradise!

I never go anywhere without a camera (I’m partial to Fujifilm) or my iPhone, always ready to catch the light, the mood, the shadow, the angle, the what-have-you. I shoot only for myself and am continually experimenting with different styles and techniques.

Thanks for looking at my galleries and musings here; you can find much more of my visual experimentation over on Flickr.
