brandy ryan + Kerry Manders AFTER PULSE
There is a vigil planned at the 519 community centre and I / must bring my camera the event will offer some good photo / ops (us queers are always good for that) and this would be / good documentary practice and good witnessing so I ready my / Nikon DSLR and pack my lenses and make sure I have / memory cards and juiced batteries.
But I leave my camera at home.
These are pictures I cannot take.
