Point Pelee - trumpet and piano

This is pretty cool. In April of 2010 I took a quick road trip to the southernmost point in Canada, Point Pelee. It's a rocky and sandy park that juts into Lake Erie. A year and a half later, I get this email:

"I'm a trumpeter from St. John's, Newfoundland, and recently I performed a piece by Howard Cable called Point Pelee. I just made a youtube video based on the performance, and since I don't have video, I thought it would be nice to include some photos instead. I searched flickr for creative commons-licensed photos of Point Pelee and I really enjoyed your set, so with proper attribution I have included them in the video." -- Aaron Hodgson

Makes my day. :)

Bonn, Germany

An alternative title to this set might be 'taking photos in a constant rain, Bonn, Germany'. I enjoyed the city, though.
