What I Saw at TIFF 2018

The Toronto International Film Festival is over for another year. I am happy to say that the films I saw this year were better than what I had seen over the past few years. The selection process is always difficult. Once you come up with the films to see you have to put them in…

Countdown to TIFF 2018

  There is one time of year that I look forward to and that is the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). My vacation leave is booked off well in advance. I have been attending TIFF since 1995. The only film that I saw that year was Fallen Angels directed by Wong Kar-Wai. I was first…

Rediscovering a passion

During the short period of time that I lived in Ottawa I rediscovered my love of photography. I had purchased a Canon T3 DSLR camera a couple years before that was just sitting in the closet.
