Cats & Cameras

Sharing a photo set featuring two of my loves today :)

So excited with my case of treasures!

I picked up this vintage suitcase from the 613 flea market in August, just when I had pretty much  given up on finding the perfect one.  All the others I had seen looked fine from the outside, but were stained or ripped on the inside.  And hey, it's what's one the inside that really counts, right? :P



I started my collection rather unintentionally.  I was at Value Village a couple months ago in Kingston when I saw the Keystone Everflash (pictured below at the top of the pyramid) and marveled at the pristine condition it was in.  Price tag: $7.99  Sold! I thought, and happily contemplated venturing into the world of film photography.  At the very least, it would make a cool prop in a vintage shoot, right?  At under ten bucks, I wasn't going to pass it up.

Almost Kennedy @ Avant-Garde

And without further ado: Almost Kennedy! A local Ottawa indie/alternative rock band and they're pretty darn amazing.

I had lots of fun jamming out to their original music while shooting this performance!






This performance was at Avant-Garde Bar, and typical of a bar setting, it was not very well lit.  I briefly contemplated shooting with flash but ultimately decided against it.  Instead, I went for a darker, grunge-y style which I thought better reflected the band's sound as well as my own musical tastes.

If you're interested in local bands or awesome music, definitely pop over to …
