I started my day covering a touching dedication of the main house in the Kingston Student Housing Cooperative which will now be known as the Jim Wrong House. His daughter, Rosemary, gave a beautiful speech about her father, his life and how proud he was to help found the co-op.

On leaving the Co-op I was surprised at how early the "celebrations" got started on the front lawns in the University District / Student Getto, although I probably shouldn't have been. I wandered around Aberdeen St and University Ave to get some shots of the students and alumni.
Next I headed to Richardson Stadium to cover the homecoming Gaels vs York Lions football game. And of course it started to rain - I only seem to shoot Gaels football in the rain. There were a lot of media present and the fans came in full force, and costume, to cheer on the home town team. The Gaels won 57-10. I did make it to the centre of the half time "charge the field and beating of jackets" celebrations. It was... unique and unreal. I got some good shots and came out of it with all my gear intact.
