Yes, I know, Jesse is slightly out of focus, sometimes that is the story of my life. However, here is the tale of how Jesse came to be a participant in my Project. One evening at Hillside while I was off dancing somewhere, Jesse discovered my pottery and one of my pals gave him the lowdown on my process and work (incorporating my film photography onto my ceramics). Lucky for me, Jesse came back to meet me and hear the story of one of my crow mugs. Always happy to share my inspirations, I did just that. During which my child decided to hide under the table holding my pots! ‘Politely’ asking Darwin to remove himself before everything came crashing down, Jesse said that one of his band mates was named Darwin too. How cool is that? Then I clued into ‘bandmate’ and had to find out what band he was in. Turns out Jesse is in The Crooked Brothers from Winnipeg and they were scheduled to play on the Sunday night.

Jesse bought one of my new crow mugs and agreed to have his photo taken. I was able to show him the cameras I had on hand, Yashica mat twin lens and the Canon AE1.

As things turn out in my world, I did want to make a point of seeing Jesse with his band. Coincidentally, my son decided to go walkabout with a pal in the dark and we had to send out a search party. Where did we find the boychik? Darwin was having the time of his life dancing around to what band? The Crooked Brothers!!!

Thank you Jesse! Keep up the great music and I hope you enjoy drinking your favourite beverage from my mug.

One afternoon at Hillside, I was people watching the people parade as is custom. I spotted this lovely young woman and she just so happened to pop into my booth for a quick look. I wasted no time in grabbing my camera and asking her if she would participate in the project.

This is Alyssa, a first time Hillsider. She had come with some friends on a free pass. She was looking forward to seeing Mickey Hart. I realized that she was on a quick scout around to see what was what, so I didn’t ask too many questions. I hope she had a great time during her time at Hillside.
