Hot smoky meat on the street

That's a picture of an Portugese street festival held in the Mile End neighbourhood of Montreal in August. It was snapped by Kate Hutchinson, a Montreal photographer who's being patient and professional while taking some great pictures at our conference this week.

And we all know how hard it is to take great pictures at an academic and professional conference. Cordura shoulder bags, glossy pamphlets and giant screens full of powerpoint presentations everywhere.

Either that of a facefull of brioche and fruit plate.

On top of that, she's taking pictures at a conference of privacy advocates.

Understandably, the conference attendees are more interested than most in how their image and personal information is captured.

As for the picture: I absolutely love street-side bar-b-que. Especially Portuguese meat - they know how to spice it and prepare it. Just by looking at the men and how they're tending to their skewers, you can tell that this bar-b-que did not come with a choice of dipping sauces.
