    Congrats on the great website, Duaner love.
    I’ve got a pair of tickets to the hot CarnivalEra show @ Heritage Playhouse Apr30 for you to give away on your contest page.
    I’ll get you a pdf of their great event poster.
    This event has become a benefit for Oscar Dorval, only son of loving parents Pat Dorval and Ange Chruikshank. Oscar had his kidney removed last week in his ongoing battle against cancer. Oscar is three years old.

    Hi Duane; We went to Hawthorne Elementary together and I work at BCF in downtown Victoria. Just found your website and I love it. I wish I lived on the Sunshine Coast. Maybe I can get a job at Langdale. Your photography is excellent. Take care. I just wanted to say hi because it has been a few years.

    When winter comes to an end and I don’t need to do so much work with the homeless shelter, would be nice to get some photography tips from you! I haven’t touched my camera for years, feel like I lost the touch.

    Your website rocks, Duane! I’ve always loved your photos & have followed you since you worked with the newspaper. I was hoping to see you at the WI Hall/Heritgae Theatre on Wed. for the Premiere of Loretta Macklam’s film “For the Love of Gospel Rock” which was a wildly successful, sold out event so maybe you couldn’t get tickets? If you’d like to link to the Friends of Gospel Rock Soc’s webpage, you & your fans will be able to view the film there.
    Keep up the great work.
    Cheers,
    Lola

    Hey Duane, I loved your Go Pro view of the inside of the Tesla on the drag strip.
    I missed the races this year but I did a video of them in 2011 and 2012
    Tesla Roadster kicked butt as usual.
    Here are the videos on YouTube which you are welcome to post on your blog.
