Mural art in Montreal, Canada. What I found interesting in shooting this was the fire hydrant and the tree giving the illusion of reality to unreality.

Rock and football photographer at heart, I love the excitement and pressure of the action.
Started shooting seriously back in ‘98 when my lens had the privilege to meet the music of Shane MacGowan head on. It gave me direction, self-confidence, and a means of expression. Many concerts later, I had the opportunity to shoot something completely different – football (soccer). I now have two addictions. :)) It’s the faces, the expressions, I seek… the atmosphere.

    Excellent. May I ask where in Montreal?


  • Hi Gene. Can’t remember the exact street, but it was in the Plateau, around St. Joseph, St. Denis, St. Laurent area… I’ll let you know if I remember. :)
