Brother Exhibits Himself, Gets 45 Days

(detail)
So I have this brother named Rod. He's like REALLY old (and ugly). He has had a camera strung from his neck since he was like fifteen (which is about when the camera was invented). An award-winning photojournalist, he is now so old he is RETIRED. His hair is totally grey, he drools at times and wears spectacles.

But there's nothing wrong with his vision...

...or his sense of drama...

 ...or his love of nature...

...or his poignant depictions of the past.

So, if you're sailing around the Ottawa/Almonte area in the coming days, you might want to pop by his exhibit/sale at the Heirloom CafĂ© Bistro, 7 Mill Street, Almonte. It begins this Saturday (the 17th of September – it's his 65th birthday) and the opening is between 2:30 – 4:30. The show continues until the 31st of October.

I hear it's a nice place and you can get fed while you're feasting your eyes.

Hours and map information here. Or call 613 256-9653.

If you go, give him a hug for me. He's not so bad.
