Aerial photograph of Pinhey's Point Heritage Property and Public Park on the Ottawa River' This was my third kite aerial photography session at Pinhey's Point. The Pinhey's Point Foundation is a group which has indicated an interest in my photography with the prospect of doing a demonstration and photo display next summer. Thus, I have incentive to return from time to time. This time I went with the hope for some fall colour remaining and early enough in the day to have the front of the building (river-facing side) illuminated with morning light.

Bruce Amos, Rob Huntley, Murray McComb. © Bruce Amos Bruce Amos, Murray McComb and myself have been having an evening out once a month for the past 18-24 months (I've lost track of time). We meet  over a couple of cold ones and a plate of wings, checking out various establishments in the city and discussing whatever photographic and other subjects come to mind. Our April 22nd, 2010 meeting coincided with an Ottawa Senators playoff game and even if we'd tried to find a place in a pub, the atmosphere would not have been conducive to talking photography. So instead...
