Eyes over Collingwood, Canada
An aerial exploration of western parts of this Georgian Bay town.
by George Czerny
Version 4.0 of "Eyes over Collingwood" provides low-level, colour, aerial photographs over the western part of Collingwood. This book is one of four "Eyes over Collingwood" books which provide a bird's-eye view perspective of this cosmopolitan community on the southern shore of Georgian Bay. George Czerny's other aerial photograph books, using the "Eyes over Collingwood" title include Version 1.0, a look over northern parts of Collingwood; Version 2.0, a look at eastern parts of Collingwood; Version 3.0, a look at south-central parts of Collingwood. Version 2.0 includes some photographs showing parts of western Wasaga Beach, a neighbouring community which boasts the world's longest freshwater beach. Version 4.0, this western side of Collingwood, also includes some photographs taken over part of the eastern side of neighbouring Town of the Blue Mountains; in particular those focus on the Historic Snowbridge/Blue Mountain area. Collingwood has a population of 19,500 and is about a two-hour drive north of Toronto. Collingwood, which was once home to a shipbuilding enterprise, is now a flourishing four-seasons' community which attracts visitors from all around the world.
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.
