I had wanted to meet Allan for several weeks now. He lives across the street from my studio, and I thought he’d make a fascinating subject for a environmental portrait. I also thought he’d be a trove of great stories, and Allan didn’t disappoint. I found him to be warm and personable with a captivating personality. Unfortunately, I forgot to ask his permission to share his stories, so I’ll leave you with his parting advice to me: “keep your stick on the ice”.
I’ll leave it at that.
