That Perfect Moment

Perfect moments are few and far between in our lives and when they do, you savour it and you replay it in your memory forever and ever.

Saskatoon, SK October 6, 2010  7:43 PM I don’t have a story to tell about this picture.  I like the bright lights flowing out of an enormous hangar.  The darkness around produces a “Close Encounters” feeling.

Twin Towers

New York City May, 2000 The Twin Towers standing tall and proud.  Little did we know back then that in just over a year later they would be attacked.  The destruction that it caused, not only physically to those buildings, but mentally and emotionally to the world.

There must have been over 200 bikes squeezed together like sardines.  I give the staff…
