Fashion Cares 2008

Photographer James Hamilton at the media red carpet for the 2008 Fashion Cares presents Fashion sCares

I had the pleasure of attending the Fashion Cares presents Fashion sCares event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and had a great time. As a guest of ACT I photographed a few celebrities including Katy Perry, Kreesha Turner, Dame Shirley Bassey and even actress Lauren Holly (I loved her in Dumb and Dumberer). For more coverage of the event check out my Youtube video showing highlights of the evening. In the above photo (taken by Joe Hamilton) I am in the media area for the red carpet photos.

A little hazy

Fire Department investigates a hazy supermarket

The fire department checks out the local supermarket. The air inside was a little hazy and they wanted to err on the side of caution. They never did find a cause for the cloudy atmosphere and they were very thorough - including the use of infrared cameras to look for hot spots.

Ripping up the road

road reconstruction in Acton, Ontario

Construction crews work on Church Street East replacing water and sewermains. A lot of roads in Acton have been improved over the last couple of years and they are now working on the road in front of our house. When they use the vibratory compactor attachment on the backhoe to the right it really shakes the house.

Acton Remembrance Parade

The Acton Remebrance Day Parade stops in front of the Cenotaph. John Tatham in a WWII uniform with a rifle stands in front of the Georgetown Pipe Band as the rest of the parade files into place. The route of the march was from the Hide House parking lot onto Mill Street, heading east, to the Trinity United Church. The Lorne Scots soldiers form around the Cenotaph where the wreaths are placed in memory of those that served and died for Canada.

Santa comes to town

2008 Acton Santa Claus Parade -  Toronto Signals Band

Santa came to Town on a wet November day and he brought a parade with him. While the weather did not cooperate (like much of this year) the parade seemed larger than last years and the crowds came out to watch. For more pictures of the parade please click on my page here.

Lake Erie winter surfers

Lake Erie blows cold as winter surfers catch some waves

The seas were angry that day, my friend. I know I have said that before but I still love the line from Seinfeld. Joe and I travel to Crystal Beach on the shores of Lake Erie to watch some winter surfing. The strong winds blow up the waves as they hit the beach and the surfers gather for a competition. I don't know how they do it, the weather was hard to take just photographing the event. They wait for the big waves in the picture below.
