The best of 2020

Sample of my images covering some of the events I was able to cover in 2020. There were obviously some big gaps in the calendar due to the pandemic restrictions:

  • 10 January 2020, Andrea Rosborough, a second year paramedic student at Loyalist College in Belleville working as a server at the bar of the Shark Tank Pub.
  • 1 February 2020, Kaetlyn Osmond, Canada’s most decorated female figure skater, gave a performance at the Kingston Springer Market Square outdoor rink as part of the opening of Feb Fest in Kingston, Ontario.
  • 7 February 2020, one of the members of the Machine Mavericks high school robotics team in Kingston. I was able to follow the Machine Mavericks in January and February while they were building their robot for the competitions. I attended their first competition at the end of February before the restrictions forced the cancellation of the remaining competitions for the year.
  • 14 February 2020, the Mohawks from Tyendinaga are blocking the CN Rail near Marysville, Ontario. Two Ontario Police officers are discussing safety issues with the group of protesters.
  • 8 March 2020, the Newfoundland team, led by skip Brad Gushue, won the Tim Hortons Brier held in Kingston, Ontario.
  • 17 July, 2020, a quiet City of North Bay waterfront.
  • 19 September 2020, volunteers harvests potatoes at Robinson community garden in Kingston, Ontario, with all the food being provided to six organisations in Kingston dealing with food insecurity.
  • 23 October 2020, students from the Limestone District School Board and the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board comfort each other at an impromptu vigil on Bayridge Drive in Kingston, Ontario on October 23. This vigil, attended by dozens of students, was held at the site of a two car accident which occurred in the evening of October 21.
  • 27 November 2020, Patti Clow, a volunteer with Lionhearts in Kingston, Ontario has been helping to serve meals since April. “It feels good to give back,” she says. Lionhearts has provided more than 150,000 meals in the Kingston area since the start of the pandemic in March.
  • 28 November 2020, a City of Kingston bus lost control and hit a residential residence in the west end of Kingston, Ontario after being hit by another vehicle at an intersection at about 10:30 a.m. on November 28.
