Boston Wrap Up

This month I visited Boston, for the first time, and was pleasantly surprised.

As probably one of the oldest and most historic cities in the United States, Boston has a lot of interesting things to offer and do. While I knew beforehand that Boston was not a very large town, I was surprised by it’s town feeling. This definitely adds to the character and beauty of Boston and is also why I would suggest to visit Boston not in a short stay (2-3 days) but give yourself a week or two to really discover the city.

Niagara Falls Wrap Up

This past month I attended the Canadian Imaging Conference, for the first time, at Niagara Falls.

I had never before been to Niagara Falls before and I must admit that it both amazed and disappointed me. The falls itself are stunning and amazing to watch from close by as from afar. It is also a great walkway alongside the river and the best view is definitely from the Canadian side. But this is also the most commercialised side of the 2, although most told me that the Canadian side is the best one I can only partially agree. For me the US side is more authentic and has a more natural atmosphere.

When driving up to Niagara Falls, I made a short stop in Toronto as I said I would do in my Toronto wrap-up. Therefor this list will mainly be about Niagara Falls but will also include a couple mentions from Toronto.

Nick De Clercq earns PPOC Accreditation

I am extremely proud to announce that I am officially a PPOC accredited photographer!

On February 7-8th I earned an Accreditation in Architectural after a series of my architectural work passed a juried process at the Accreditation judging session in London, Ontario.
