Just Some Stacks of Chairs

This is a photo from my Canon 1Ds MII that I sent to canon repair after it stopped turning on.  They sent it back saying it had water damage and that they can’t fix it. The neat thing is that it came back working…. Neat. I am not sure if i should trust it but I have been shooting away with it so hopefully it will remain working :)

Here are some photos of the water damage.

Red Chairs and Cement Walls

Playing with lights in our new home

I like the red chair a lot so here you have it.

Because I am a jerk…

…I would like to take this opportunity to mention to all my friends in Alberta (and other places that are starting their long winters right now) that we have flowers and green all about us :)

Morning-Walk-about Flowers

Just tossing that out there :)

Art Brut at the Biltmore!

So Darren & I went to see Art Brut Rock out at the Biltmore! It was fun. These photos are not nearly as awesome as the ones that I took at Richards On Richards a few years back but they are OK. The Show on the other hand Royally kicked ass. It helped that I was 2 feet away from the band. Despite the group of drunken, barely of age, hipsters girls wearing large framed 80’s spectacles with the lens pop’ed out that were bound and determined to bounce me out of their way.



It was here that he started telling us that we should form a band. I wanted to yell back that after the Richards On Richards Show in March 2006 we did.  this was the Show that made Darren & I start our musical exploits that resulted in My Friend Lisa




I heart these Cuff links. I want Cuff links that say my band name :)



I was so bloody close to the guy! I sorta wished at the time that i Had brought a 24mm lens. I am glad looking at these that i stuck with the 50-1.2


Our Friend Was In Town & We…..
