A Summer Ago

Travelling back in time. Since I can't go to Wakestock this year, and since I had a request for more Reef Girls, I decided to dig this up from my archive. Enjoy it, they're major cuties.
Love, David

ps. yesterday's pic is not the same one I posted a while ago, but it is from the same night.

December Dress

So, my band just got added to the Barrie, Ont. date of the Warped Tour. I figured I'd post today, since I haven't in the past 2 weeks really. Here's Conner from boysnightout, taken last December in Waterloo at The Starlight. I've posted a few shots from that night, and I was looking through old photos today, and found this one. Enjoy
ps. I hope to post more starting soooooooon.

leave me some love.

An Act For Attention

I know I haven't been very consistant with my posting lately, but that's because I've been working on another artistic outlet, and have been strapped for time.

I appreciate all the views and comments to my pictures I get from everyone. I'd love it if you could take a look and listen. Please check out my bands new updates online at -

Let me know what you think about the music.
By the way ... if you don't know - I'm the drummer.

Love, David

Summer Wedding

This was the wedding I went to - the reason I went up North a few weeks ago.
Good times, I didn't take many shots of the wedding, or the posed photos, so I have this one candit shot to share.

I Reflect

This is my newest self portrait. It was taken against a pair of glasses.
I'm going completely against the Rule of Thirds that I explained about in my past 2 posts. Any rules are made to be broken - you should just be aware of why you're breaking them. I personally like breaking rules, and I like this crop of the photo better than any other.

The Next Level

This was taken in Mississauga in the Erindale Park. Kevin and I went shooting there a little while ago and this came from that adventure. I should go back soon! It's beautiful there, and it's close to the UTM campus.

"Erindale Park is a great place to ride if one lives in Mississauga.
It has different varieties of terrain: fast technical downhills,
steep uphills, fast technical singletrack, switchbacks, water,
mud and thank God no sand!"

Go riding!

In response to yesterdays post - "The Rule Of Thirds is a compositional rule of thumb in photography." - Wikipedia

Rule To Third

Here's my example of the rule of thirds :)

Split Ends

We didn't know which way to go - there was a fork in the road ...

... so we turned around.

There's always more than one path you may choose to travel. Always choose wisely, and make sure you can reverse or turn around on the path of your choice.

Fester And Congeal

"Conrad stood there soaking wet in the swamp bog, wondering what the hell to do. It was a struggle to move twenty feet in this freaking muck. Every time he looked up, he was looking into a delirium of limbs, vines, dappled shadows, and a chopped-up white light that came through the tree-tops — the ubiquitous screen of trees with a thousand little places where the sun peeked through. Nevertheless, he started wading back out into the muck and the scum, and the others followed. He kept looking up. Gradually he could make it out. Up in the treetops there was a pattern of broken limbs where the SNJ had come crashing through. It was like a tunnel through the treetops. Conrad and the others began splashing through the swamp, following the strange path ninety or a hundred feet above them. It took a sharp turn. That must have been where the wing broke off. The trail veered to one side and started downward. They kept looking up and wading through the muck.

Then they stopped ...

There was a great green sap wound up there in the middle of a tree trunk. It was odd. Near the huge gash was ... tree disease ... some sort of brownish lumpy sac up in the branches, such as you see in trees infested by bagworms, and there were yellowish curds on the branches around it, as if the disease had caused the sap to ooze out and fester and congeal — except that it couldn’t be sap because it was streaked with blood. In the next instant — Conrad didn’t have to say a word. Each man could see it all. The lumpy sack was the cloth liner of a flight helmet, with the earphones attached to it. The curds were Bud Jennings’s brains. The tree trunk had smashed through the cockpit canopy of the SNJ and knocked Bud Jennings’s head to pieces like a melon." - Tom Wolfe [The Right Stuff]

This picture I took up In Haliburton reminded me of this amazing excerpt from Chapter 1 of The Right Stuff. Enjoy it.

ps. by excerpt I mean paragraph ;)
