Autumn in The Muskokas

We spent the weekend at the family (in-law’s) cottage north of Huntsville, Ontario.  The weather was superb, the skies almost perfectly clear, and the turkey delicious!

Barnstorm 12

My band, The Reverb Syndicate, was thrilled to be invited back to play at Barnstorm 12, the ever-growing, always-fun music festival near Finch, Ontario.  The farm where the event takes place is just amazing, especially for someone equipped with a camera!

I went a little nuts with HDR inside the barn, but to be honest, with the coloured lights the way they were, it really was as psychedelic as the photos turned out!

August Assault Derby Bout

For the final home games of the 2011 derby season, RVRG treated fans to a great double-header with home-team victories for both games!

The Slaughter Daughters faced off against Pioneer Valley’s Western Mass Destruction, while the Riot Squad played GTA Rollergirls’ Derby Debutantes.

It also gave me a great chance to try out my new ultra-wide angle lens, the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8.

The Flaming Lips at Ottawa Bluesfest

I caught The Flaming Lips at Ottawa Bluesfest 2011 for the second year in a row.  I’m not sure how I got my camera (with the 70-200mm lens!) in to the site, as apparently they’re not allowing DSLRs now.  I had no idea, and security never stopped me, despite seeing it in my bag, so I guess it’s not a huge deal…

Summer Schooled Double-Header

Another weekend, another set of fantastic derby games. This weekend saw the Slaughter Daughters vs London's Thames Fatales, followed by the Riot Squad vs London's Lunch Ladies. Both games were fantastic, with the Ottawa teams walking (er, skating) away victorious in both.
