old school.
Photos: this is me when I was a Trooper in 1 Troop, B Squadron, of the Queen's York Rangers. The reserve armoured reconaissance regiment was and is based out of Ft. York Armouries on the Toronto waterfront near the Canadian National Exhibition grounds. With A Squadron based out of the Aurora Armouries north of Toronto.

At the time this image was taken in August of 1992 or 1993, we were doing annual summer training excercises near Meaford and Owen Sound in Central Ontario. I think we were doing roadblock duty on a rural road waiting to stop vehicles who were potentially OpFor (opposition forces). Wasn't much of that going on so it was good opportunity to brew up some tea and snap some pics.

I always had my camera with me. At the time it was a black Olympus stylus point and shoot 35mm camera. It fit perfectly in the chest pocket of my combats and took a lot of abuse.

*** If you have any film that you don't want to spend a fortune on converting to digital, go to Walmart and get it put on to CD. I had 100+pics done for under $5 CDN. And in an hour. Which is about a 1/10th Henry's would have charged. And Henry's will only put 20 pics on each CD and charge steep for the media. Now, if were talking quality super high res film scans with multi MB file sizes, then sure go to a pro, but to put some old pics up on the net that was a super bargain. Expect more pics sometime soon. :)

Carpe Diem

Great suggestion, Mike. I've been impressed with the quality of Wal-Mart's CD scans. For the money, it works out to great price-quality.
