Come fly with George
2022 | Arts & Photography Books, Travel | 76 pages
Getting up in the world over Collingwood, Ontario, Canada is easy thanks to George and his publication “Come fly with George!” This magazine-style publication does more than put modern-day aerial photographs of Collingwood at your fingertips.
Explore the beauty and history of Collingwood and the Blue Mountains through George’s stunning aerial photography.
Not only do “Come fly with George” pages provide current (June 2022) photographs of Collingwood, author-photographer George Czerny-Holownia also provides photographs which show bird’s-eye views of parts of the Town of the Blue Mountains; in particular focusing on parts of the popular Blue Mountains Resort.
Readers need not go to the expense of hiring a plane, or hope for good weather in which to fly. Bonus: George includes some historic photographs in the pages of “Come fly with George”, such as views of an unique side-launching of a ship. Collingwood’s main industry was once shipbuilding, but the shipyards closed in 1986.
“Come fly with George” takes readers from take-off to sightseeing over Collingwood, the Blue Mountains and parts of southern Georgian Bay before returning to land.
“For local residents, or out-of-town property owners,” it gives an opportunity to see their neighbourhoods, perhaps their houses, the way the birds see them,” said George.
“For people who don’t know the area, it’s a great way to visit it,” added George who has been taking photographs, both aerials and from the ground, for thirty-nine years.
