About the Book
Version 1.0 of "Eyes over Collingwood" is one of four books of aerial photographs showing various parts of Collingwood, Ontario, Canada. Version 1.0 focuses primarily on the northern parts of the Town of Collingwood. The colour photographs, taken from low levels, provide interesting bird's-eye perspectives of the town on the southern shore of Georgian Bay. "If you can't pinpoint your house in my photographs, you should be able to pick out your neighbourhood," Czerny advises local residents, adding that for tourists his books provide some insight into this cosmopolitan community. For example, if one thinks of a picture being worth a thousands words, Czerny's photos easily explain the popularity of Collingwood recreational amenities such as waterfront parks and bicycling/hiking trails which become cross-country skiing trails in winter. "Eyes over Collingwood" books let readers look at Collingwood in the way the seagulls see it, said Czerny, adding that his books will appeal as gifts and souvenirs, as well as providing an interesting look at this community which is about a two-hour drive north of Toronto, Ontario. Version 2.0 shows eastern Collingwood and a small part of neighbouring Wasaga Beach. Version 3.0 shows south-central Collingwood and Version 4.0 shows a small part of neighbouring Town of the Blue Mountains.

George Czerny-Holownia has been writing for more than four decades under the name George Czerny. He spent almost 30 years in the newspaper business, starting as a reporter/photographer and then taking on any challenges thrown at him in a newsroom. He moved on from being managing editor of a daily newspaper to becoming the publisher and general manager of the then-weekly newspaper, The Enterprise-Bulletin in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada. A 14-year stint at the helm of this community newspaper put him in close proximity with small-town community life and the then-busy (but now closed) Collingwood Shipyards about which he has written. Mr. Czerny married Nancy in 1968. They live in Collingwood, Ontario. George and Nancy have two sons, Stephen and Douglas, and five grandchildren to whom The Collingwood Shipyards book is dedicated. George has published four books using the Blurb system and enjoys sailing in his spare time.
