My Ottawa Includes Graham Powell

In an odd twist of cross-city pollination, I was sitting in an Ottawa coffee shop catching up on Photojunkie's "My Toronto Includes…" when into the coffee shop walks a man who looks vaguely familiar.  I look down and there  he is on my screen – Graham Powell. [photo by Rannie Turingan]

I don't know Graham.
To the best of my knowledge I've never seen him before. I'm sure he
doesn't know me.  But there he is, simultaneously on my screen and
ordering a Venti Soy Latte.

So I walked up and introduced myself and handed him a copy of CheapEats Ottawa. I mean, the man's gotta eat, right?

    Well, I’ve never been accused of being shy. ;->

    It’s a GREAT thing – I used to be very outgoing but as I get old(er) I find being more shy right now…
