holy shit i've been dead for three weeks

Sorry about not posting lately. Southern  Ontario has been in a massive heat wave and i've been spending more time at work than anywhere else because they have AC lol.Heres a few pictures for being such a dick lately
 This one was obviously set up. The cans were lying around and I decided to set them up in a nice fashion. There are a few more from this set but I lost them when that stupid POS hard drive crashed
 This one is another on of my favorites. Contrary to what it looks like, I did not screw around with it in photoshop. Like I said in a previous post, I hate post processing.  It was taken in a silo that was moss covered and when the flash went off in a upward position the colours came out very green. I even decided to name this one "Celtic Bricks"  Good times.
 This poor bastard burnt down. It used to sit beside the oldest train station in my town (decommissioned) before a bunch of unruly teenagers decided to burn it to the ground. I'm sad that I never got into the train station to take pictures . I was told there was a lot of old documents, passenger lists and train schedules etc. but I am happy I got a picture of the caboose before it disappeared into the ground like everything else
 This is a shot of my buddy Kenny dropping from one rooftop to another. he was a very talented skater before he decided school was more important. I can't blame him for that decision. the rooftop is about 12-14 feet high. Serious injury could have occurred but it didn't. We ended up getting kicked off the roof by the owner.

Anyways Here ya go. Be back soon.

Picture-a-day Tuesday! LATE AS SHIT EDITION

Sorry for being late, I was taking kids heads off with paintballs earlier with my girlfriend and her two friends at one of our local fields. Goddamn I love that game. So to today's days picture is paintball related. the only problem is that I had to steal it from my own Flickr because I lost all the originals. Smart.  

I took this picture at the flag raiders young gunz tournament. What a blast that was. I was allowed right on the field and everything.

Picture-a-day Monday! DOUBLE EDITION

Here is two pictures I want to share. why two? Because the  first  one  isn't really a photograph. It's more of a shot I snapped off quickly before the police noticed what I was doing. the date was June 26th 2010  and Toronto was about to see the biggest  fest of shit ever. Police cars burning, looting and destruction. All I caught was the calm before the storm because I had to work. I missed a hell of a time but  I feel that if I was there, I would have had my camera confiscated or thrown into one of those temporary holding cells  for a few days. Which did happen by the way. Canadians were treated like prisoners in their own country. If you were anywhere near something illegal that was happening, you were taken away in cuffs.   The worst part was that The safety committee  called in officers from all over Canada to help out so if you had some kind of complaint or wanted to sue, Good luck because  odds were that the officer who harassed you is across the country not giving a flying fuck.
 The second picture is at a waterfall in Erin, Ontario. There's a few more from this set I might post later because the place was so goddamn cool. I didn't want to post a picture of the waterfall itself because they all look the same, Water falling down vertically. woohoo...

Picture-a-day Sunday! QUICK EDITION

Heres a picture that I took. I'm in a hurry. saint Catharines scene fest! Cancer bats, silverstien, USS some other bands i'm supposed to like. GOTTA HURRY IT STARTED AN HOUR AGO

Alot of my photos will be under exposed or over exposed but thats the way I like it. I don't believe in post procecssing unless I'm getting paid to do it. If the picture didn't look good the first time there shouldn't be a second chance with the same picture. Try it again another day. Hipsters may know how to use photoshop but I know how to take a good template picture. I wish I could take this again properly but they demolished the factory in favor of a wallmart super center. GODDAMN YOU ECONOMY !

Picture-a-day Saturday!

This picture is from the same set that the pier shot was taken from but instead of being a dumbass and risking my life on the iceroad from hell, it was taken on the beach where it was safe to walk around. I actually walked out onto the ice flows but not too far.

So some chick got mauled by a dog

Yeah some mom across the street was delivering newspapers and the big dog rushed the door, breaking it off and tearing her forearm apart. At first I thought she was laughing  but then I heard her scream "CALL 911, CALL MY HUSBAND"
My roomate and I rushed outside to see what the deal was and lo-and-behold the dog ripped some cartridge and other disgusting crap out of her arm. You know, the stuff that's supposed to stay inside your body and never see the light of day. Anyways i quickly related to any and every hospital show ever and fashioned a tourniquet out of my shirt to stop the bleeding. I put the first one just below the elbow to stop the cut off circulation and made another tourniquet for the wound itself. She wouldn't take her hand off the wound claiming that "stuff was falling out" I kept reassuring her that it was just blood. Oops...

After stopping the bleeding and 5 minutes  later the EMT crew showed  up and made a comment on my roomates hat. He was wearing a Habs hat and the EMT guy cracked a joke about it. They also complained about how tight i made the tourniquet. "Sorry for not studying up on the proper pressure of a tourniquet when applied to a wound."

After it was all said and done   the lady who owned the dog offered us beers but she didn't have any at the time.

Job well done team.

Now the serious part. That lady has the ability and the right to sue the owner of the dog effectively making that poor dog a dead dog walking. All he was doing was protecting the his territory but the fact that she was injured (although it wasn't THAT bad) is enough to justify  the death of the dog.

Sad end but it could take a while before he sees it.    

Its friday friday gotta get down on friday

The weekday is over and  its time to drink copious amounts of alcoholic beverages. Being a college kid, its  not to hard to find a bunch of people willing to go out to  some local watering hole and get silly but next weekend is the real prize of the summer, The port rowan wingding! Basically you pay 20 bucks to get into the firemans hall and eat all the wings you  want. Sounds like a fat kids dream but the real kicker is that my friends cousin's farm is across the street so we show up at 3 or 4 in the afternoon with a cooler of beer and drink till the hall opens up for the chicken wings. After that, the hall clears out and turns into a dance hall with plenty of drunken fun.

Last year i was wandering around port rowan when my bro came to find me. I kid you now this was the dialogue:
"Yo, what are you doing?"
"Dunno man just wandering around, the partys pretty dead over here"
"Well yeah its a morgue"

And we were standing beside a morgue.

By the way, that picture is a regular thursday night when session is in. Its called power hour and its dollar beers from 10-11 pm
