Welcome to the world young "Evan". May your paths always guide you well and may flowers and sunshine always grow around you. You are the luckiest little boy in the world to have been born into the loving household in which you will dwell. You have wonderful Parents, Grandparents, Uncles, Aunts, cousins and friends who have been waiting to meet you. With your birth, comes a love so strong that it will likely overwhelm your Mom and Dad, and all those around you. Behave Little Man and let Mom catch up on some well deserved sleep. Be Brave Little Man when you open "your eyes" and see many looking back at you with big smiles and warm words - Your Family.

I know I cannot throw an axe that far, let alone hit the target!
Of course, there are always crowd favourites.....
- and young fella's breaking records.....
Guyz showing off their protective gear.....
Even the Dogz enjoyed themselves.....
Balancing is an ART, and toting a saw n cutting even more so......
Fire Starter - not an easy Event.....
The crowd has an astonishing day, the competitors are overwhelming with talent, and hard work and give it their all - with "practice, practice and more practice".

My name is Charles.....
This is my brother Larry n my other brother Larry-
I think more clearly when I lie down.I have an idea - perhaps my idea is useless, however; we would like to join with our other fine feathered brothers' n sisters and create a "gang" of mighty seagulls in the attempt to get some free food.
We sort of have a plan, however odd it might seem. Through much discussion, we have decided to gather and hatch a plot of fear; arrive in great numbers, confusing everybody and steal fish n chips from the King Street Takeout customers.
We voted in Slick Eddie to be our leader; a commanding fellow of sorts, whose good in a fight.
Unfortunately, he flew into a pole and has gone a bit soft in the head.
Then, there is John and one of my brothers - Larry. They are sneaky, I mean real sneaky and I thought they would be a great addition in hatching the plan, however; they are dealing cards across the river in Maine at the gambling resort. Oh crap!
I had hoped to have Carrie fly over and sit on the roof of the takeout and just listen - like a secret listening agent; just found out she does not like the music they play on the Tide Radio Station - seems she likes the blues much better. I am not at all happy with this.
Dinner Anyone ?

Living in the fog belt of Maritime Canada gives many opportunities to photograph "Fog" in all its glory.To have access to the Bay of Fundy coastline, the ocean, the rivers, lakes, streams, wildlife, highways and towns surrounded in fog is a moving experience. Now, most people think of seasons as Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. Living on the Eastern Coast of Canada gives us a fifth season - that being The Season Of Fog; which can interrupt all other four Seasons.
Many folks do not find fog as welcoming as I do. I love how fog changes landscape; giving it a lure of mystery. I love how it changes the forest and makes it dark and frightening, almost hypnotizing to a degree. I love how it changes the smallest to largest of animals and makes for an awesome experience "of the sheer magnitude of prickly skin terror".
There's dry and wet fog, early morning fog, valley fog, fog that evaporates before 10a.m.. There's fog that clings to the tops of hills and trees.....and if only you could reach a bit higher, you might come in contact with it. There's fog that clings to your clothing and at the same time takes your breath away. On the Bay in winter, you may experience "freezing fog" - it will settle layer by layer on your vessel and you'll hear the sound of axes chopping ice off the boat which could mean the difference of arriving at port safely or sinking.
I have found valley fog to be one of my favourites. There are many hills and valleys in New Brunswick. An early morning valley fog lies between the hills. You can capture the beauty of fog moving and eventually evaporating into the day, or watch it come and go with the ever changing Bay Of Fundy Tides. Fog to me is also a welcome treat to cool off the heat of the day.
The reward is simple - for one to have captured a momentous frame in fog; weather of a different nature - perhaps an outstanding difference with something unique - for one foggy morning, the photographer stood outside the "other seasons box".
