A hard-working genius you want on your side.

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Wow, this guy is kind of a lookalike for my youngest brother. (Tim in Kelowna) I took a picture of him standing in one of the Sooke river potholes, looking up just like this... cool similarity! Great shot of the hard-working genius and ally. I like the somewhat soft nuance of the image.

@Rick: Ha, I guess Tim in Kelowna has a Vancouver twin :-) Curious to see that photo now.... Thanks for the comment... I agree that the plant guy image needed a soft finish, unlike the grit of the irrigation guy :-)
