Monday Photo Blog: Five Shots from Darryl Reid!


February 9th, 2015 by

Darryl Reid can always be counted on for bringing the quality, and has a tendency to raise the bar a couple notches in the process. This Monday Photo Blog is proof of that. Here’s five blasts to get you through the work week. Live it like you listen to it; fast and loud. For more go to reidd2.tumblr.com.

Monday Photo Blog: Ringside with Darryl Reid


October 27th, 2014 by

I’m always stoked when Darryl Reid sends something over to the Monday Photo Blog, because it’s always primo material, as you can see below. Darryl’s not afraid to get down on the dirty floors to get the shot, such as with Born Wrong, and Hashed Out. If you can’t get enough — and who can these days? — go check his tumblr page.

Monday Photo Blog: Varning 2013 with Darryl Reid


December 30th, 2013 by

Since this is the last  Monday Photo Blog for 2013, I figure we need to go out with a bang. What better way than some more shots from the master Darryl Reid? As always, it was hard as hell to narrow these photos down to a small amount. Since this is the end of the year I figure, why not indulge in excess? So here’s a few more than normal, and these are all from the Varning From Montreal Fest in 2013. For more, stumble on over to midnightlullabys.blogspot.ca. Get some!

Monday Photo Blog: Darryl Reid lays it down with S-T-Y-L-E!


November 4th, 2013 by

I have been sitting on these gems for a while. But I believe you need to pace yourself in spreading the quality around, make the viewer wait, then give them not just what they want, but more importantly what they need, whether they realize it or not. So, for this Monday Photo Blog, we’re getting five more photos from the camera of Darryl Reid. Always top quality, always mind blowing. So much style it’s almost criminal. For more of Darryl’s work, check out midnightlullabys.blogspot.ca.
