Harry at Superstore


As I was unlocking my bike at the Superstore on MacAthur this afternoon I watched Harry ask for money. His hand straight out shaking. I went over and gave him a dollar and asked him about the wire piercing his cheek. He did it himself using a section of earring. " When I first put it in my cheek it was silver but then I ate some beans and it turned gold!"
We both laughed!

LUCK / / Ottawa Arts Counsil Fundraiser / / My Art Submission

LUCK! 2019: A true game of fate

The Ottawa Arts Council’s annual LUCK! art draw is a special event that provides a diverse showcase of local visual artists. Invited artists donate an artwork and guests purchase a ticket to win a creation. This evening is unlike any other in Ottawa, as every ticket is a winner!
The Master of Ceremonies shuffles and pulls winners at random from a deck of cards, each corresponding to a ticket. Those pulled first…get first pick! Best of LUCK!

Clifford

I noticed Clifford walking casually up and down the 'passage of light' on Nicholas this afternoon. I ask him if I can take his picture and he says 'Yes, if you could give me a bit of money.' Of course says I. Then Clifford says 'Could you pay me before you take the picture because I'm tired of people fucking me around. I've been fucked around all my life.' So I give him 5 bucks and say 'Did you think I was going to take your picture and run away without paying you?"  "Yes" he says.

Tania

I met Tania sitting by Dollorama on Rideau St. yesterday. I asked her if I could take her picture because I thought she looked amazing.  She said " You'll have to excuse me but I'm going blind"

Chuck's Hat


Today in front of Dollorama on Rideau Street. I told Chuck I loved his hat and he said - " Everybody loves my hat. I got it at  Sally Ann on Montreal Rd and only paid $8.00 for it." He shook my hand and started pulling me in for a hug and I said - "sorry Chuck I don't hug"
