Bonne Fete Antoine 5 Ans | Case #033

There may have been more photos, there’s 22 in total here, but the first image is damaged as the result of the back of the camera being opened at some point. The rest will have been spared from already being in the roll.

On the poster, it says Louveteaux, which is cub in French. So this is likely the Cub Scouts in a predominantly French speaking part of Canada. That doesn’t 100% mean Quebec, but narrows it down.

Happy Birthday Antoine

The wall hanging upper right says The Court of King Arthur. Left of that a little mouse that says kiss me, hanging from a brass engraving of a sailboat.

Looks like Antoine gets his birthday right around Christmas.

Even though the tree is up, I get the feeling this is present opening for his birthday.

CD’s and Vinyl in this photo and previous shots. Both the white and yellow pages in the accessible spot. Amp with cassette player. This could be about the year 2000.

This lego set he has here is called Jack Stone, and thanks to a quick check on Brickopedia, it was a set that only saw the light of day between 2001 and 2003.

A portrait. I know hard to tell but there’s two people on the left.

His birthday gift all set up.

The game is called Freddy, but I’m not sure what that’s supposed to do……ooooh, catch flying fish. 🙂

Shrek also came out in 2001. Antoine’s brother looks very happy with his gift. Antoine, not so much 😉

Possible camera malfunction here.

Two for two, the older brother nails it with an Orange County Choppers set. VHS and DVD in the background. Definitely before 2005, but after 1999.

I laughed when I saw this, poor guy. He’s got X-Men jambes on and someone dropped a Winnie the Pooh Colouring Book in his lap. I smell a gift from Grandma.

Cars, Cats and Christmas | Case #019

(THIS CAMERA WAS FOUND DURING FILMING OF A CTV SPECIAL ON MYSTERIOUS DEVELOPMENTS, CLICK HERE TO SEE THE STORY)

The Camera
Canon Powershot A60. A point and shoot camera released in 2003. Featured a whopping 2 Megapixels and 3x Optical Zoom.

The Film
SanDisk 256MB Compact Flash Card. Again, state of the art at the time, but now a days you wont see them sold under 16GB!

The Images
If the meta data is correct, these images were taken between 2007 and 2010.

2007
There are 103 photos taken at a car show on February 25th. I only included some creative highlights, as well as some faces. Alberta licence plates and towns clearly visible on cars and advertising. If it’s Calgary, it’s likely at the Stampede grounds.

The next day our photographer took a video of a funny Tylenol commercial off their TV screen….

There’s a few photos of what couple be the photographer’s backyard, and car taken in March 2007. Alberta licence plates are shown. The area looks distinctively NorthWest Calgary, or a town like Canmore or Banff, Alberta. If the car show images weren’t enough to tell you this individual loved cars, then take note at this spotless beauty. paint job is great, and looks newly washed even though it’s winter.

In August our unknown photographer saw fit to capture images of this rare animal….The Walkable TabbyCat!

October photos show two men and a young boy at a  kitchen table. The man in the blue and white shirt is my best guess as photographer.

2008
There’s a smattering of photos and video taken throughout the year. A total of 23. A few nice cars, with people posing in front, and the front of what’s likely their house during Christmas. It’s a shaky image but you can tell they went all out on the festivities 😉 I’m more inclined to believe the meta data is correct, as the Christmas lights photo shows December 30th, at 9:51PM

The other thing that popped up in the 2008 collection is a short video of the unknown photographer’s TV set. An old show, Dotto Tech featuring info on an early Pentax DSLR. This gave me the impression he or she had high aspirations for their future shooting. “I want to record this so I can follow up on it later” is what it seemed to say to me. (I didn’t upload it due to its size.)

2009
Only 12 photos this year. I’m surprised to see almost the exact same thing. Flowers, show, a shot of the TV and a photo of a Christmas decoration taken on Xmas Day. There’s a couple older guys posing outside. One could be the photographer.
