Shot of Expresso

Friday, December 18th, 2009

I recently helped a friend update his point’n’shoot camera and was pleasantly surprised by the advances being made in the technology and general ease of use. We celebrated the purchase in a local Montmorency cafe where the resident barista was well known for his decorative prowess.

After reading that the camera offered face recognition technology, we came to same conclusion at the exact same time and did the only thing possible under the circumstances.

And it worked!

Treading Carefully

Oh, if these wheels could talk….

They could hopefully tell me just how far we’ve walked together these past few years. More likely, they’d hurl abuse at me for the the terrible conditions I’ve at times literally dragged them through. Snow and ice, water and mud, parquetry and pavement. We’ve done them all.

Mercifully, after valiantly hobbling along for a month or so, the end came rapidly for this battle weary pair. With a defiant spray of sparks, the last vestiges of tread slipped off the rims and into the gutter as we headed for the car at the close of a particularly grueling day.

A quick call to the ThinkTank people saw a sleek new pair of wheels arrive in the mail. It would be smooth sailing again in no time. For the moment at least!

I’m often asked if there were any particular moments that influenced the direction of my career. Seeing this, while on assignment several years ago, would be one of them.

After that, I guess I just looked for jobs that seemed to have my name written all over them.
