Congrats to QMI Agency colleague Matthew Usherwood for this ace photo & to colleagues at the Beacon Herald for running it big & beautiful in their Festival Edition 2012.

Off to see the  in a bit. One of the Toronto papers was saying there is a rumour Des McAnuff may be back at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival next year in a revisit to . . . The Who’s Tommy, the hit 1990s’ musical he co-wrote with Pete Townshend. Which would make this excellent image somewhat prophetic . . . there has to be a twist . . . a pinball wizard photographer has such a subtle wrist. Etc.
