Jim Davis sent me this picture yesterday, this is the secret behind the aerial photo of the Mounted Unit. That's me on the right and Joie Trzecak on the left. As you can see, I'm hanging on for grim death with a stupid smile plastered on my face. She's actually shooting. I did get some shots off, between moments of terror. Thanks Jim, for taking the shot to remind me of one of the more interesting shoots I've ever done. Posted by Picasa

The Toronto Police Service's Mounted Unit and The Aboriginal Peacekeeping Unit in partnership with the Urban Youth Riding Project today honoured the very first graduating class and new police horse Tecumseh. The Urban Youth Riding Project is an inner city equine therapy and recreational program. 

Ricardo was hanging from the rafters to take this shot I think.

I just thought you all should see this website set up by Greg Adams, an American whose heart was touched by Brig's story so much that he has spent the last few months working on a tribute for him. Loads of people donated their time to putting it all together and it really is beautiful.

It's best viewed in Internet Explorer, you won't see any text in Netscape.

Little black bomb-dog on the far right would not sit still for anything so I had to photoshop her into the pic.  Posted by Picasa
