The Adventures of Doug Ball...

Apparently Doug Ball took my guidance to do what ever you want to do with your single frame to a new level: he took it hunting.

The 36Frames case seen at the Owen Sound Harbour where the Chi-Cheemaun ferries people and cars between Tobermory and Manitoulin Island during the summer.

As every experienced photojournalist knows...if you don't have a tri-pod with you...use a beer cooler.

Besides being a respected photojournalist, Doug has been a member of the Couch Cowboys Hunt Camp for 41 years. It seems he used my camera case to lure this 8-point buck into a trap....he won't tell me if the blood on the case is real...

3 Legends In A Row

From left to right: Doug Ball, Norm Betts and Peter Bregg talk serious photography at Jet Fuel in Toronto. Norm was there to hand the camera and case to Doug Ball and a beer got in the way (or is that a coffee?).
