My friend Ian Baker and I decided to be adventerous one evening. We knew about a church being torn down on the west side of Woodstock, so we decided to check it out. When we got to the site we discovered the site was surrounded by a fence! So we totally snuck in, tested our luck for as long as we dared, and got out before people started to realize that we didn't belong there.
On my trip to Toronto, to see the World Press Photo exibit, I had some free time to wander Toronto. One interesting thing I've learned recently, is that by carrying around a professional looking camera, you pretty much have the right to approach anyone you want and ask them their life story, and they will tell it to you willingly. Its great. Thats how I met this man. A kind soul who has volunteered for the St Johns Ambulance in Toronto, for the past 40 years or so. Unfortionatly, my memory isnt the greatest and I dont remember all the things he told me. Another thing I've learned, carry a notepad!.
These are my parents! Brian and Annetta. To them I owe....well, you all have parents, you know what they've done and what they're willing to do for you (hopefully). So I guess what I'm saying is, you owe yours what I owe mine,which is a lot, and it is also common ground giving me reason to not specificly say what I owe them... They came down to Belleville on thanksgiving weekend to check out my place and my school. We went for a drive to Lake on a Mountain in the county, and I managed to capture this little moment, my Dad being a pain in the but, and my mom, being my Mom :)
Shotgun Rules. Rules! Quite possibly the best local band in the history of local bands...but werent all bands local once? hmmm.... I was home for the weekend of October 3rd, 2008, and they were playing a show! so I brought my camera and took photos... The guys in Shotgun Rules decided to take a break from writing new material to play one last show for the year. The night kicked ass, and there was a guest appearance made by Alex, bass player for The Fully Down. oh yah, this guy was there too...sweet?
