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.

So Jeff and Lauren got married.  I wasn’t the official photographer, so there’s nothing too fancy here, but boy, what a fun night!
