Green haired gal

DykeParade18-18-EDITED

I shot this back during the pride week dyke march on Church Street here in Toronto. Don’t let the title fool you, this gal was a guy in drag; not that there’s anything wrong with that. Whatever floats your boat, right? Anyway, I remember it was a rainy day and pretty hot. I was sick so I didn’t get many photos, besides this one. Hope you like it.

Laundry Day

TasteofLittleItaly18-46-EDITED

I shot this back in the middle of June during a walkabout in Toronto’s west end. I like how the rest of the person is reflected in the glass of the door, although admittedly it’s not easy to see. Hope you like it.

Not another CN Tower shot…

DavidGeoffMary-240-EDITED

I don’t like shooting the CN Tower for two reasons: 1. it’s been done to death, and 2. it’s next to impossible to get anything interesting. But despite myself I still shoot the damn thing whenever I’m in the ‘hood. Mostly I end up with crap that never sees the light of day. This one, however, I actually like. I think photos of the CN Tower work best when you have other stuff in the frame to compliment it. Anyway, hope you like it and hope you’re having a good week.

Something’s in my eye

GordParksExhibit-37-EDITED

I shot this on Dundas St W across from the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) back mid May. Obviously I was drawn to the humour of the eye being blocked out by the guy’s head. This was an exhibit out front of one of the local galleries on Dundas. Happy Canada Day, by the way. Hope you’re having a nice long weekend.

Lively Kensington Market

1stPedSunday18-140-EDITED

I snapped this during the first Pedestrian Sunday of the season at Kensington Market. For those not from Toronto, Kensington Market is a lively little community sort of stuck in time and the last Sunday of every month in the summer they close the streets to vehicular traffic and people come out and enjoy the festivities. In this case there was a fantastic band playing in the street. I got a few shots but this one I like the best.

Yellow Bug

WalkWithPrachy-166-EDITED

I snapped this a few weeks back on Queen St West in Toronto. The bumper stickers really made it for me. I’ve been out taking photos a lot and also editing photos for my upcoming photography books, which is why I’ve sort of neglected my blog lately. I notice my last post was a full week back. Shame on me. I’ll try to up my game and post every two or three days going forward. Happy Friday and hope you have a terrific weekend.

Coffeehouse Window

VictDayMon18-42-EDITED-3

I shot this back on the long weekend in May. There was just something about that young lady with her back in the sun, while the rest of the window remained in shadow. I think it works nicely, although it won’t make the cut when it comes to my colour photography book. Hope you like and and hope you’re having a good week.

Love is…

DundasWestFest18-62-EDITED

I shot this last weekend during another walk through the west end. My views on Love are tainted by my lifelong failure at it, to be honest. Like everyone I have my times when I yearn for it, but mostly – and especially as I’ve gotten older – I’ve trained myself to turn my back on it; to look at it as something from which to run.

Anyway, I saw this storefront and it got me thinking about Love again. Perhaps it’s spring in the air, I don’t know. Better close my windows and turn my back on the idea while I still can.
