Latest Camera Gear!


Here’s another photo from The Brickworks. On another note (Olympic hockey related) , I can’t believe Canada let the U.S. tie it up with only 24 seconds left in the third. Now we’re into overtime. That can’t be good. Oh … Continue reading

Street Preacher in Black & White


This guy was hilarious. He’d stand there and as people walked by he’d jump in their face and yell, “Let Jesus into your heart” or something to that effect. Frankly, I have no doubt he works for the Devil, since … Continue reading
