For the fourth time this tour, I was able to see the lads play, this time just a short Dufferin bus ride away from their home in west-end Toronto. The gig was very loose, a lot of fun and you could tell that this was the end of the road for this particular tour. Nice to see them mix up the set list a little this time, too. Here's a few snaps....

One Woman's Shelter


In a world where most people dress for comfort, it was somewhat of a thrill to see a woman glammed up at lunch hour. To see them stand sensually while doing something as mundane as waiting for their bus was too good an opportunity not to capture.

Homecoming



With the deaths of two more soldiers being announced this evening, I reacted with a head-shake, a "Why?", and a wonder. When will this insanity end?

Oughta waaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Boy what a vacation! Three days in the nation's capital full of gettingstuckinanelevatorwith15mexicankidsforanhour, identity theft, and STILL an utter and complete lack of Record Runner (my personal disappointment). Despite all that, we managed to have a lovely time, and I managed to snap a few shots.

En route, we stopped in Westport, which frankly seems to be a sort of Niagara-on-the-Lake for white people without much money. Which of course, suited me just fine. Some of what I saw included...







Once we made it to Ottawa, we noticed that it was being overrun by a massive spider.

Well OK, it wasn't exactly running anywhere, but it did look kinda spooky.

Then I found that the Bridgehead coffee house in Lowertown was being attacked by cats.

And of course, you can't forget the influx of 21st century yuppies to the Market area. I'm sure the fumes from the STO buses will make for sound sleeps.

Of course, some housing is somewhat puzzling.


Oh, Hi there.

Ahh....back to the hotel. I tell ya, the Quality Hotel on Rideau just oozes quality. If by 'quality' I mean lousy service, useless staff and elevators that just refuse to elevate.
