    Dubbed “Chasing Waterfalls Weekend”, my girlfriend and I set out to view as many waterfalls as time and weather would permit. It turns out, the weekend allowed for 2, Bellfountain Conservation Area and the falls found on the Chedoke Radial Trail. More on the Chedoke Falls in an upcoming post.

This is where I learned the 1st and 2nd rule of Street Photography (or any photography) Always carry a spare battery Always carry a back up memory card Seems pretty simple doesn’t it?
