Billboard Builders

I’ve always been somewhat afraid of heights. Pretty sure doing this kind of work is not for me. I took this shot on Queen West, waaay out in the west end almost at the end of Queen. I live past the end of Queen in the east end. I think processing this in black & white gives it an old feel, like a photo you might see from the ’40s. Anyway, this weekend’s been a bust for me. Really haven’t gotten up to anything — just some chores around the house. I’m dreading work tomorrow, but at least this is my last week before a week’s holidays. I’ve got a ton of work to do when I’m off, so it’s not actually a holiday. More like just working from home. This might be hard to believe, but I’ve had only one single real holiday in my adult life. I rented a cottage in Picton, Ontario with my girlfriend of the day for a week back in 1985. Once I started my business back in 1987, that was the end of vacations for me. I’ve never had a passport, believe it or not. I’ve come to accept that I will never get a real vacation, but I suppose we all have sacrifices in life, right? No sense worrying about it. I wouldn’t know how to do it anyway.
