Remember last week when it was actually HOT and sunny? .... This month is weird.
Happy Monday, friends! If you've been following along, you might have noticed that I've been incorporating more creative portraits into my regular body of work. These sessions tend to produce my favourite images because they are a unique combination of everyone involved... and I also get free reign to play. Ha 🍄🍃Do you consider yourself open-minded?🌻🍁 If so, you might be interested to hear I've started offering creative portraits as one of my regular packages 😎 If you're interested in collaborating on something a little different (or want me to come up with something weird) hit me up! -------- Model: @sydneyensing_model

I don’t expect everyone to understand what follows, but there’s a lesson in the experience; indeed as in all experiences...
Decades ago, a cluster of us in the shop were debating over luncheon, which of our machines had provided the most indispensable technological convenience.
“The spindle shaper”, I said, because one could suddenly create mouldings in a fraction of the time.
Still others offered excellent opinions.
On and on this discussion went, rising in volume and emphasis for five minutes, until it developed into a cacophony of opinionated voices.
Then suddenly my father’s voice, as if from Olympus, said:
All of us stopped mid-word, stunned, at this revelation.
You could have heard a pin drop...
This most simple yet continually-used tool was indeed - and remains - indispensable.
Take away all other conveniences, and yet one could still create with a table-saw.
We were all humbled yet again at his ability to reduce every problem, minor or major, to its root; to retrace, or to reverse-engineer a problem to its core essential.
(This thought-process is now my own way of approaching a problem, for I was taught by example).
My father bought this 14” diameter blade table saw in 1952.
I’ve changed only the guide, motor, and bearings.
How many employee-families this workhorse has sustained in 66 years!
Tens of thousands of pieces in unbroken continuity.
By its simple rotations, it has shaped wood into structures of all kinds.
And where others see merely a tool, I see around it, in my mind’s eye, the glowing smiles, encouraging eyes, and skilled and loving hands of those I knew when all the world was young...
Cherish the moments.
Exchange Tower, Toronto...
Walking 2 blocks from the Royal York Hotel to my favourite downtown cigar store, ‘Be Urbane.’
In front, there’s crowds of people; black limousines, and police everywhere.
As I walk through the crowds, they’re backing up and waving to me and letting me pass.
Lots of smiles, and I smile back and wish them a great day.
Everyone was so happy!
I get inside the Lobby to the store and the lovely lady clerk in the cigar store, positively radiant, throws open the walk-in humidor flamboyantly and says:
“Oh my God!!!
I LOVE your work!
Here’s our best cigars!”
I tell her I don’t have alot of money for the $70 cigars and just had enough cash on me for a few Nicaraguan Churchill’s, as my wallet was in the Hotel.
She says “Oh of course.
Why would you carry cash?
You can charge anything you want and I’ll send the bill to your Hotel.”
Surprised, we exchanged pleasantries.
I asked if she knew my work from Instagram.
She was a great fan!
Asking what I was working on, I explained that I was re-designing a few condominiums, some kitchens, furniture and home interiors.
She was pleasantly surprised and yet perplexed at this revelation, and so I asked her frankly what it was she thought I did, in case my Instagram account was misleading.
“Well, you’re an actor!”
“A what?”, I said.
“You’re Richard Gere!
You’re here for the filming!”
She was very gracious when I explained she was misinformed...
(I checked his Instagram, and I look nothing like him!
If I did: I’d be buying those $70 cigars).
To be clear:
It was merely the coincidence of the film crew, as I’ve never experienced this before.
I’ve no delusions.
