Wordless Wednesday : Sunrise Edition (10/12/2014)


Gone, but not forgotten (Summer 2014)

As 2014 is coming to close & given the timely topic for this week; I thought I would post my favorite photos from this past summer.

Gone, but not forgotten

Show us something that is lost, but not forgotten.

Today was one of those days that reminded why I lug my camera with me everywhere I go.

RIP Jean Beliveau a.k.a Le Gros Bill

Tonight, the city of Montreal is in mourning and so I am.

Earlier today, we lost an icon, a gentleman and probably the classiest man to have ever played in the NHL.

When I was a kid, I often heard my pops talking about the several charities they were involved with together and I still remember my dad’s face lighting up when talking about Jean Beliveau.

My dad was not one to give out faux praise, so you knew when he did; it was for real. Jean Beliveau was one of rare ones those Dad praised.

I have always been in awe of him and every time I have seen him, he always had a kind word and always took the time to chat with me; the last time was a couple of years ago at the Bell Center.

From what I am reading & hearing today, he was like that with everyone and that is why the city of Montreal is in mourning tonight.

My dad and him were a lot of alike: classy, humble & unpretentious. So today, I feel like I lost another father and I am definitely not alone in feeling that way.

Thank you Mr. Beliveau for being you and thanks for all that you did for the city of Montreal.

The sky above Montreal is a little less bright tonight as it is missing it’s biggest & brightest star. RIP Jean Beliveau

Photos are visual spaces where shapes and lines, objects, and people come together.

Photography 101: Triumph

Today, let’s bump up the contrast for a bold take on triumph.

For me triumph means getting some great shots at the Fireworks Festival; got lots of not so great shots too, but I am focusing on the positive.
