Really great photos.

I am moved by the one of Bill Kerr on Remembrance Day. Might I suggest you list his rank in the cut-line? It is 'Corporal', written as Cpl. Bill Kerr. It may seem trivial but speaking as a 10 yr. vet, I can assure that such details matter.

Keep up the good work.

seriously: is there ANYTHING funnier than stormtroopers?

The Rob Ford pic is cute, despite how you feel about his politics. Because we've all had that wind-blowing moment, and your expression is just like his when it happens.

Some folks may not agree with Mr. Ford's politics, but you have to hand it to the guy ... he is out there actually DOING something, for nothing, with kids, just because he love it AND knows that this is how strong communities are built.

This is a great shot, BTW ... Ford is soaked and his suit is probably history, but he's not turning around. Probably swearing at the darn umbrella, the wind, whatever.

Thanks for all these delightful photos. And yeah, I'm with Capt. de Guzman in his assessment of Storm Troopers. heh heh ...

pictures is good , but may not be signifaicant.
