First Day of Spring!!!!!! …..And 10yrs to the day when I reported for my last day of duty in the Regular Force before starting my retirement leave. On the left was my last official portrait taken on the 20 Mar 2009 on the right is one of my more recent self portraits I took in #OSBphoto studio in #YEG.
Behind me on 20 Mar 2009 was tours to Somalia, Bosnia, and a couple of interesting tours Afghanistan. The experience of working/travelling on/to five of the seven continents. Also I can’t be forgetting all of the people that lifted me up and gave me a hand up through out my Reg Force career in the #CAF. (Good news a lot of them are still supporting my growing, and keep in contact)
Ahead of me on that day was a motorcycle accident that took me you out of the photography business for about four months and put me back a year from my planned goals, and even also some hard learned lessons in being a #Vetrepreneur running a civi business arena.
But more importantly ahead of that day I was to have plenty of adventures, travelling doing photography, building relationships, and making new friends that compliment my army circle. I think I would of been smiling even if I knew about the rough patches that did sprinkle throughout out the upcoming 10 year journey.
So it has been ten years of growing and exploring. I am going to share with you all that I couldn’t of not done it with out your support, patronage, and example (even some of you “the bad examples” I did learn from you to ;) )
