In the midst of the destruction of last year's Alberta floods, one particularly happy photograph helped people get through a tough time - and helped dub Shawn Wiebe
the 'ridiculously photogenic firefighter'. He and Sheila Rowland
, the woman he rescued, explain how the photo came to be.
Will it ever end? Ever since the Rob Ford scandal erupted over a year ago, the infamous Mayor of Toronto has been the subject of insatiable and endless attention. Sook-Yin Lee stops by city hall to talk to two guys who spend most of their days at city hall, Global News cameraman Tyler Thornley and reporter Jackson Proskow.
Now if you're a Canadian of a certain age, you probably remember the days before the toonie. Back then we had the two dollar bill, which initially had a lovely image on the back: six Inuit men in Canada's high Arctic, preparing to go out on a hunt in their kayaks. But one of the men in the photo is Joseph Idlout, who happens to be the grandfather of Canadian musician Lucie Idlout
The rise of cell phone selfies and photobooths has led to the creation of a new art form: the photobomb. Showing up unexpectedly in someone else's photograph, usually making a funny face, has become all the rage on the internet. And Canadian Kelsey Whyte
, better known as photobomb girl, has become famous for it.
Turns out, Kelsey's not immune to a little photobombing herself...
This photo of a deer on a rooftop went viral, and now, it's bringing two Northern Ontario neighbours together! Chris Spence is the guy who took the picture and Erin Rose is the woman who discovered what was causing the pitter-patter on her roof. They're meeting for the first time, in studio with Sook-Yin.
What would you do if you woke up to discover your toy dinosaurs had come alive at night and gotten into your cereal boxes, toilet paper, maybe done a little baking? That's exactly what happened to Refe
and Susan Tuma's
kids when the tired parents of four accidentally created Dinovember
Rick Hill was on vacation in Hawaii with his wife and kids, when a stranger offered to snap their photo. The stranger was Joe Parker. When the two men started talking they realized they were from neighbouring Massachusetts towns. But when they started playing the name-game, they found a much, much bigger connection than they could've imagined!
Alex Voutsinas and his wife Donna are happily married and living in Florida. But before they got married, a photo revealed that they'd had a chance encounter there before. Alex will tell us the story of Disney World, a photograph, and a remarkable statistical unlikelihood.
Images can be misleading, something Melanie Fahlman-Reid
learned after seeing this photograph of her Cree mother-in-law, Mary Reid. This famous World War Two-era snapshot was once said to be an "unidentified Indian princess getting blessing from her chief and father to go fight in the war" - which, Melanie believes, is far from the truth. This story first aired on the fantastic Rain City Chronicles
a series of storytelling nights in Vancouver.
