Daily Quote: November 13, 2020

Don’t expect things to happen fast.
Be empathetic with the people
you are photographing.
Don’t be concerned about money.

Holidays and Celebrations:


  • Friday the 13th is usually a big day in Port Dover Ontario as thousands of Motorcyclists converge on the small town. This year due to COVID-19 the locals in Port Dover are asking the motorcyclists to stay home. Permits aren’t being issued to venders and merchants are closing their doors. I wonder if the participants will still show up. After all this event wasn’t initiated by the local residents but instead by Hell’s Angels, who didn’t ask permission in the first place.

Most of my pictures are never published. I just document things I think are important.
For instance, I’ve documented the gay pride parade from its first days.

Friday the 13th: Port Dover Bike Day

Donald Duck Day

Ken Doll Day


Another Friday the 13th that I’m not able to attend the special Port Dover Motorcycle Rally.  Over 200,000 motorcyclists will venture to the small town and take over the main street to celebrate.  The attendance might be slightly less if the day occurs in the winter, but the truly devoted make the trip.

White Pelicans and Black Necked Stilts were playing on the lake at Estero Llano Grande State Park.  This was just one small group as there were more than 60 White Pelicans that I saw on the lake.
