Rayanne and I attended a birthday bash that became a family reunion in Big River Sask.
Just a few pics from that weekend here.
Ive been here about 8 hours now, our fixer Nik picked me up at the airport and gave me the nickel tour. Then it was time for a sleep. later after I awoke and showered I went to the old market for a snack. Some kind of spinach dish, then walking home a canon shot out to mark the end of fasting. It is Ramadan. Walking back I could hear the calls to prayer filtering outside into the street. I aint in Kansas anymore.
Being a photographer has it’s up and downs. Today was definitely up. A few thousand feet up. A helicopter flight in a British Army Gazzelle. And as good fortune had smiled on me for a shoot on great day my pilot is also a combat camera photographer. Being a photographer he was the perfect pilot for my visual needs and had removed the doors for an unobstructed view in the back seat. I look like a kid on the special bus. Beautiful day, great warm weather and the best seat in the house.
