I recently had the chance to visit the Alberta “Museum of Making”, a museum full of old steam equipment and best of all, CARS. I brought along my Panasonic GH4 and only 1 lens (whoops) to take some photos. If you have the chance, I highly recommend going to this museum, 1 trip is not enough to drink it all in.

The Museum of Making is a very special place, I was very fortunate to be invited to see it, if you have the opportunity, do not miss out. There are so many other things that I didn’t even get a chance to photograph.
