Way back when, many moons ago, I spent a few formative teenage summers at Kamp Kanawana, an idyllic collection of cabins and tents in the Laurentian woods north of Montreal. Canoeing, camping, guitar-noodling around campfires, and just generally pretty much living the picture perfect salad days of youth.

Fast forward 20+ years, and I receive an email from Hugo, who was my camper at Kanawana all those many years ago. He and his fiancee Yata live in Abu Dhabi, and were having a Hua Hin wedding in her native Thailand.

It’s not often you get a chance to reconnect with people after not seeing them for several decades. Add that to the list of reasons I love my job.



Special thanks to Anatoly B. Valentine for second shooting with me. Always a pleasure, comrade.
