New subways to Vaughan

North of Toronto there’s a city called Vaughan. Recently Toronto finished a multi-year project to build three new subway stops to Vaughan, and my friends and I took a trip up there Saturday to check them out. They are literally works of art, and huge enough that as the area around each station grows, the station will be able to handle the added volume of riders. Anyway, here are three shots I’m particularly fond of. I don’t ride the subway often so for me it’s more like going on a ride at the carnival than a mode of transportation. Hope you like them.

Night Snow in Black & White

DavidGalleryLibrary-381-EDITED

Wow, what an amazing last three days. Got out shooting all day Friday through Sunday. Still have a bunch of photos to process this week. This one happened at the end of my walk. I’d ridden the streetcar from downtown back to the east end with a buddy and when we arrived it was just getting dark and the snow was really picking up, so we decided to hang out more and take photos as the darkness settled in. I liked this scene because it sort of reminded me of Edward Hopper’s work. I have another one of this storefront in colour that I’m really happy with, which I’ll post another time. Hope you like it.

Red coat

YorkvilleAndrea-15-EDITED

I went downtown with a few other photographers yesterday. They were calling for snow all day so I brought Wilson (my Canon 5D Mrk III) sporting a Canon 50mm f1.4 prime on him. That lens is great for catching the falling snow, but it’s not really a good focal length for me. I prefer wider, like 35mm or 28mm. Anyway, instead of snow we got light drizzle. Very disappointing. I didn’t get many shots but did get this portrait, which I like. And since I haven’t posted a portrait in a while I thought I’d share it with you today. Hope you like it.

Doorway

UnionStationAngela-10-EDITED-2

I shot this a few weeks back at Union Station in downtown Toronto. I was drawn by the various shapes and leading lines. Had to park myself for a few minutes and wait for just the right person to pass by alone. Ideally, someone in light clothing. As you can see, I didn’t get exactly what I was hoping for, so this one will have to do.

Kensington Market at Dusk

DowntownWithGeoff-179-EDITED

Here’s a shot I snapped a week back at Kensington Market just after dusk. These sorts of shots tend to work best in colour, in my mind. Boy, that Fujifilm 18mm/f2 prime sure isn’t good at focusing in low light. Very frustrating. I can’t wait until they come out with a Mrk II version of it.

So I managed to get out for full days of shooting both Saturday and Sunday this past weekend. That’s two weekends in a row now. I actually started to feel a little home sick yesterday driving back to the house. I still have a bunch of photos to edit but I’m hoping to get it done over the next couple of days. Anyway, hope you like this one.

So I made it out to the 2nd annual women’s rights march. Last year it was mostly about Trump. This year is was a full on “men are bad” march. Okay, I exaggerate, but I’ll admit I was a little put off by the tone. Not a big fan of sweeping generalizations.

Anyway, as a photojournalist I am there not to judge but to capture the moment. I wasn’t feeling it like last year, but I still managed to get a few I liked. Hope you like them too.

Bridge over Queen

David&Dom-201-EDITED

I snapped this one from the walkway that connects the Eaton Centre to The Hudson’s Bay store a couple of weeks back. Not much to add. Hope you like it.

Lazy Photographer now on Instagram

Instagram

So I’m now on Instagram, in case anyone else is using that platform and would like to follow me. You can find my IG page here:

I don’t post that often, like a couple of times a week. I guess not a lot different than here. I’m trying to post only my best work there, I should mention.
