The Park 36

Photos from this year's UCI Grand Prix Cycliste de Montreal. Somewhat topical since yesterday Canadian cyclist Ryder Hesjedal (who came third in this race) was accused of doping. See the info about the allegations and his defense here.

The Park 35 (group 3)

A group of young people from all around North America who were just traveling through Montreal. Hidden in a dark area of the park, I almost didn't approach this group. They were obviously looking for some privacy and an area that they could claim for the night. I'm so glad that I did approach them and take this photo, as they were very friendly and accommodating.

The Swap

My portrait of my good friend and fellow photographer Aislinn Leggett. Aislinn and I participated in the newest Stuart Pilkington project, this one called The Swap. I took a portrait of Aislinn and she took a portrait of me! To see the image she took of me look here.

The Park 34 (group 2)

Workout ladies. This summer I often saw groups of women participating in circuit training in the park and was always so inspired by their level of exertion. This is one such group.

The Park 33 (group 1)

The first of a few groups that I scanned high res so that you can see more detail.

This group was photographed on a Sunday and they were a pretty rowdy bunch. One of the young men suggested that he might take his pants off for the photo. I replied that he better watched what he promised since I would surely photograph it if he did take his pants off. They laughed, the pants stayed on, and this photo was taken.

Unseen Dummy Award

Last week the photo book dummy award winner was chosen at the Unseen Photo Fair. My "Ulysses, a personal journey" was on the shortlist and was on display at the fair. The winner was Heikki Kaski with "Tranquility". I wish I could have seen all the books, I'm sure it was quite a sight! There were no honourable mentions but I was gratified that my book was mentioned in the announcement of the winner. See here.
