Life In Rotations

If you’re a passionate music fan, Brian’s Records is the place for you. Located in Kingston, Brian’s Record Option, is somewhat of a hero to his loyal customer base, who flock to his Hub-based hole in the wall to shop for posters, vinyl, 8-track and the like. His store may seem a bit overwhelming to first timers, however one need only ask the man behind the counter for help finding a certain item, and miraculously Brian will know exactly where to find it.

Photographic Therapy

I’m Marissa Flink, from Kingston, Ontario. I am 24 years old and I love photography. I am an only child so starting from a young age photography has really helped me keep busy and occupied. It has also played a major role in helping me through my anxiety and mental health. I love being outside and being surrounded by nature, there is just something so calming about it. I want to be able to show people, through my photos, the adventures I’ve been on, but also use captions as way to express how I felt during those times, and how I pushed through to be able to go on those trips. I want to be that person who can put a smile on someone’s face, and be there for them. I want to show people through my photos, the beauty of nature, but also my story.
