One winter morning Peter woke up and looked out the window. Snow had fallen during the night. It covered everything as far as he could see.

Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood.

More Winter Photos

I'm seriously sick of winter, but the photographic opportunities have been terrific. YUK! Blogger turns my white winter pictures to grey.  See them on Flickr the way they are meant to be seen.

Campaign Round-Up

Whoa.  What a campaign.  I worked on Chrystia Freeland's by-election in Toronto Centre and it was an amazing experience.  Or set of experiences.  I got to photograph Justin Trudeau from close up, sat through Friday prayers at a mosque, watched a Deputy Returning Officer get fired at 4PM on election day, listen to an NDP poll worker's racist rant about non-english speakers, talked about artillery with Lt. Gen. (ret) Andrew Leslie, watched Kevin Clarke go ballistic, met dozens of fascinating people, had tons of energy, got to be a part of the game, and to top it off, a fantastic party after we won.

It was a good time.  The biggest thing was that they asked me to take photos.  I forgot that I could do people pictures.  Its been such a long time.  But I knew exactly what to do, and despite being very rusty, managed to do it.  Here are some of the best photos.  Some are duplicates of earlier posts, but I did all these over again as I gained practice at Lightroom and Photoshop.
