I did get to know Craig's 85 year old grandpa Cornie Stoez interview-style at a weiner roast this afternoon. He was a good recipient of my questions and answered full well. Listen up, Grandpa's speaking. At one point around dusk, he held up his charred hotdog after the first bite and peered at each one of us around the table through that little pierced hole and encouraged us to stay positive and never dwell on the negative, no matter the situation at hand. You are as young as you feel! Wise words from a sharp gentleman.
Here is another contact sheet depicting recent travels with the Kiev 60. All over the map as per. Trying to shoot for proper exposure. The arrival of Audrey Lily to Heather and Julian sent me running for the camera. Last of the Rainbow Trout work. Winnipeg band Smoky Tiger was incredibly fun to shoot. Depressing Waterslides was shot with Andrea in mind (because your response to the color version made me want to go back and shoot it again with contrast film--which I did on a day trip to Selkirk from the back of Craig's truck at the Skinner's Drive-thru) thanks.
The following four shots after the Depressing Waterslides were shot in and around Selkirk, Manitoba (a really awesome port town home to a sweet Legion).

Weird collection of found papers today after a rural Manitoba thrift scoop resulting in a simple MP Scollage. It has been too long since the last. Tis the season to do just that (scanner collage). Oh la la Autumn. I love how you roll in. Trench coat season COMMENCE. Amen.
