I always have my camera within reach. This is very convenient for those who spend a lot of time with me, but not very convienent for me. That said, fate has smiled down on me: I won a contest for a free photo session with Vancouver photographer Rachel Barkman! Of course I have to wait to redeem my prize until I'm back in BC, but still, this is pretty exciting stuff and I look forward to sharing the results sometime in December.
