Jim Whey The Cobbler

Jim will always do well. He is a genuinely nice and happy person. I think it comes from the fact that he is good at his craft and great with people. He takes our beloved old shoes, skates, goalie pads and whatever needs a leather repair and brings them back to their former glory. A great guy and a great character in downtown St. John's.

Chess is one of those quiet characters. He is usually found hanging around Tim Horton's drinking coffee with his son and his sister. They may not be terribly well educated but they all work hard. Snow shoveling, painting fences and doing little jobs all around the down town.

I like Chess because he is always chatty and often suggests new ways for me to photograph him doing some new job he is particularly proud of.

Always squinting, (he needs glasses) when he recognizes you it turns to a big grin.
