Street: Now I Have Beard Envy

beard envy

I used to have a beard when I lived up north, only in the summer though – in the winter they ice up too badly so it always came off. Someday, when I’m all grey and such, I’ll put one back on and hope it turns out like this guys.

Black & White: Early Halloween Fun

Too early?

Photojournalism: In Memorial

Flowers in memorial for Cpl. Nathan Cirillo who was shot and killed at the National War Memorial in Ottawa (Ontario, Canada) on October 22, 2014.

It is, I suppose, inevitable that at times like this patriotic and nationalistic feelings run high – it’s good to remember that each comes with its own particular set of dangers.

Black & White: Spotted

Yesterday there remained a heavy police presence in Ottawa near the National War Memorial where Wednesdays shooting took place. The barricades were well away from the memorial so many of my shots were at the long end of a 250mm lens, but even with the distance involved it didn’t take them long to spot the guy with a camera pointed in their direction.

Ottawa Shooting: This is Not an Appropriate Response

As many are aware we had terrorist attack here yesterday, one of the immediate responses has been to shutter the gates of Parliament Hill.

Inside these gates are two large lawns that are often filled with free yoga classes, games of Frisbee, people having picnic lunches or strolling around, and in the winter families building snowmen or warming their hands over The Eternal Flame – today we’re locked out.

If we change they have won – open the gates.
