    The older I get the more I seem to take notice of the losses incurred in this life.  
    Sadly we just keep losing more and more of our numbers.  :( 
    Rest in Peace, and Til All Are One

    Wanted to share my personal favourite photos from him, these Autobot and Decepticon group shot ones. I remember seeing these for the first time and being in awe of both the size of his collection and the amt of time it must have taken to set this up.

    Never knew the guy personally, but I remember spending hours browsing his blog and admiring his photos. He will be missed.

    This news hits hard, for years Bryce was a familiar con attendee that I was always happy to see. He and I could hang as dudes beyond the bots, we texted throughout the year hyping up the next Toronto meet-up. But that was yesterday, Today I will miss our drinks on the patio, I will miss our meals together, I will miss the Bot talk but I will really miss my friend... Rest easy big guy

    "Everything remains exactly as it was.
    I am I, and you are you,
    and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
    Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

    Call me by the old familiar name."

    Or to quote McCoy: "He's not really dead. As long as we remember him."

    I don't believe I ever had that much interaction with Brr-icy, but I did admire his photography and it's a loss for the community.

    Sadly I heard this news on another website that discusses metal. Had no idea that it was one of our brothers here also...very sad to hear of his passing. I know that I've seen him post excellent pics here, I may have had interaction with him at some point I'm sure. Rest in peace at both Valhalla and Cybertron my brother in metal!

    Aw man, that's sad news. I don't know if I ever interacted with him personally, but he was a very prominent member of the community and I definitely followed his photo content. Rest in peace.

    Always sad to lose anyone, especially before their time.
