Fire in the Sky

On a highway back from a recent excursion into Toronto, I managed to snag these photos of a beautiful sunset.

Photography Grab Bag #2

My friend Colin in the first photo, randomly taken in the school auditorium.

Also, the duo of Dan and Riley, Dan playing his guitar, and Riley astonished to find himself looking like a zombie.

Two Dudes

Two dudes who, gun to my head, end of the world type situation, I'd want on my team trying to save the universe.

Also, 100th post. Woo!

Photography Grab Bag #1

Photos from a recent trip to Toronto for a Less Than Jake concert.

The lighting rig above the concert floor, Dave drinking a beer.

There was a skating park set up in an outside tent, this was one of the dudes.

We stopped by a cafe shop the next afternoon, where the man who owns the place is an award winning cappachino design guy. He made a flower :P

And my friend Aquila drinking an expresso.

There Once Was A Man Named Blue...

There once was a man named Blue
Who was a black belt in the art of Kung Fu.
He fought the forces of bad
Where ever a fight was to be had.
Better watch out or he'll come after you.

Seriously, be good, or Detective Freeman K. Blue is gonna fuck you up. He's watching...

There Once Was A Man Named Blue Part 2

The second batch of photos with Blue.

There Once Was A Man Named Blue Part 3

This is the last of the photos with Blue.

Film-ination Station

Several of my friends, as well as myself, were involved in the making of a short film a while back, and I functioned mostly as a photographer on the set. Here are some of the photos I took.

Film-ination Station Part 2

More photos from the film production. While on set, I mostly just took photos, as most of the manual labour type jobs were taken by others, though I was requisitioned at times to hold a light, or man a dimmer pack.

The first couple photos are of the dashing detective main character. The others are of his best friend, and his loyal butler, as well as a captured villainess.

Film-ination Station Part 3

This is the last group of photos from the movie production.

Here we see the villainess looking all dark and moody, and the suave, James Bond-esque villain.

Be Much Greater

It can be so simple, so little, such a small trivial thing.
To spare someone you know, you're close to, pain.
Even though it's out of your hands, it's not your call
You'd do a lot for them, to help the pain go, however small.

Everyone has troubles, burdens, but some are much more
visible, more tangible, more quantifiable and horrible.
To be carried for so long could make any go mad, and it
fills me with pride to know that he can carry it so well.

To remain normal, human, sane, when faced with such a thing
might destroy a normal person, someone lesser, but i'm sure
that he is neither, more super and greater.
