As with my images in the Toronto Star, most of my images published in the Toronto Sun have been lost to the ages as well. The only remaining clippings I have are a shot that I got from a tractor trailer crash that I passed on the highway while on my way home. The other clippings are from an award I won when I submitted an image I shot at a motorcycle hill climbing event at Hockley Hills, near Orangeville, in Ontario in 1980. I was 20 years old at the time and studying at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute (now...Ryerson University). The image was shot on a Canon F-1 body with a Vivitar 400mm manual focus prime lens. I won first place in the black and white division for all of the Canadian entries in the 1980 Kodak International Snapshot Awards contest. I won an additional "award of merit" for the shot in a separate judging category.
