Bart Hawkins KrepsAfter university studies in the philosophy of economics, I’ve worked as a construction worker and farm hand in the northern plains states of the US, typesetter in Toronto, financial controller for an indigenous organization in the Canadian arctic, newspaper editor in small-town Ontario, and freelance website designer for almost 20 years.

As much as I enjoyed all those careers, they haven’t meant as much to me as what I’ve done in off-work hours for the past 35 years: riding a bike.

Today I’m fortunate to live on the north shore of Lake Ontario, at the very edge of the Toronto megalopolis, in an area still astonishingly rich in natural beauty.

This blog may dive into abstract discussions, but mostly with a local angle, and I hope I can continue to capture in photographs some of the beauty to be found every day in this environment.

Every blog should be about some place

and for this blog

it’s this place:

PortDarlingtonWorld-900

The centre of my world these days is Port Darlington, on the north shore of Lake Ontario just east of Toronto.

Most of my travels, and all of my bike travels, have been in North America. This globe is scaled to the perspective of my memories.
