Have you been tempted by those ads for the inflatable LayBag? Well, you might to think hard before ordering one. This is how mine arrived... with an entire seam (the entire length) sewn inside out; the picture below is of the outside of the product. I strongly advise against purchasing this product, since the customer service is horrible. I've had two online chats with their reps and received 3 emails from their service rep Moritz. Moritz tells me that all of their bags are sewn like this (not true, as proven in their product videos and even if they were, it would be even worse since it would demonstrate what terrible craftsmanship they use). He said there is nothing they can do (and they will not even consider a return or refund). I'm now dealing with it through other means.

This is the transcript of his final (3rd) email to me (oh, you must check out how the 'return policy' is worded, which requires you to send the bag to Germany (at what cost!), but that would be pointless, since Moritz tells me the product is made as it was intended and they will not issue a refund, so they are clearly not
interested in dealing with any customer returns. By the way, the return policy isn't included anywhere on their website (no terms of service at all), and the link I provide below, which was given to me by Moritz and an online rep, is to a shopify page. I also wonder why they would make me return the product to Germany, when it was shipped from Canada. Here is Moritz's 3rd message (notice the juxtaposition of an offer to 'gladly help you with any concern or doubt', while also stating they they 'do not generally offer returns'. My objective is to ensure that as many people as possible are aware of the poor quality and workmanship of the product, but especially, that they realize they will have no recourse if they have an issue with the product.

Un moment de réflexion avec son calepin just avant le crépuscule, suivi d'une belle discussion. L'étranger n'existe pas. Son nom est Michel.

A moment of reflection with his notepad at sunset, followed by a quiet conversation. We are never strangers. His name is Michel.

* Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis 2013 Calendar *

When my 23-year-old son-in-law discovered in May this year that he had MS, his mother, a yoga instructor and nurse, quickly got to work thinking of ways to turn her feelings of devastation into positive energy. She approached me to be the photographer for a fund-raising calendar. Many weekends and evenings were spent taking the pictures of yoga instructors from across Ottawa, and processing the images. 

The calendar is now published and can be purchased at yoga-for-ms.myshopify.com All proceeds will go to the MS Society of Canada, which has officially endorsed this project. Our goal: raise $10,000 for MS research and awareness.  Please support this cause by purchasing your own copy. Also makes a great stocking stuffer for Christmas. The images in this album are but a preview of what you'll get when you purchase the calendar. 

Pour mes amis francophones, j'ai travaillé l'été et une partie de l'automne à la création d'un calendrier dont tous les profits iront à la Société pour la Sclérose en Plaques du Canada. Vous pouvez acheter votre copie au yoga-for-ms.myshopify.com  Merci à ceux qui porteront leur appui à cette cause! Je vous donne un aperçu des photos dans cet album.

For +Women Wednesday  curated by +Niki Aguirre +Athena Carey +Lee Daniels +Kerry Murphy +Christina Lawrie and +Teresa Stover.

* The Competitor *

I had the opportunity to shoot equestrians at a competition on the weekend. I was really taken by this young lady's intense gaze as she waited her turn. For #PortraitTuesday curated by +Laura Balc.

Une jeune cavalière au regard intense observe sa concurrente dans une compétition équestre. Cette photo a presque finit ses jours à la poubelle mais un peu de traitement, et finalement c'est une de mes préférées de la journée.

Demystifing the Nikon D600
For anyone who has been reading blogposts about the D600, I found this to be a level-headed assessment. If you own a Nikon, The Mansurovs blog offers a lot of great information. They also wrote a whole series of blogposts on the D800 that you can find on their pages.
