Happy Labour Day, all… So I had a fun couple of days out with the camera. I thought today I’d share the handful of portraits I was fortunate enough to get yesterday, thanks to the graciousness of my subjects who patiently put up with me. The last lady is Olivia Chow, which won’t mean anything to folks not from Ontario, but she’s running for Mayor of Toronto. She was nice enough to allow me to photograph her, but I suppose that’s part of the job. I can’t support her but that doesn’t change the fact she seems like a lovely person with the best of intentions for our fair city. Her husband was the famous Jack Layton, who was head of the NDP Party federally and who managed to garner so much support in the last election his party ended up becoming the official opposition party — a first in Canadian politics. Sadly, the man passed away from some form of cancer right afterwards. He made such an impact on politics in this country we gave him a well deserved state funeral. Again, I didn’t and don’t support the NDP but that does not mean the man didn’t have the best of intentions for this country in his heart. He was very much loved across Canada. I can’t help but feel bad for Ms. Chow, losing her beloved husband before his time. It can’t be easy.
