Saw this backhoe across the street from the AGO a couple of weeks back and used it to frame up the person walking on the south side of Dundas. I think it came out nice. Hope you like it.

Fire on Queen St

Major fire in an apartment building across from where I was having coffee this afternoon. Looks like the apartment’s been gutted. I can’t imagine what the occupants and the other tenants are going through right now. It must be very traumatizing. I didn’t have my camera so I had to shoot this with my crappy phone.

Yesterday’s Snowfall

Got out yesterday for a full day’s walkabout in the snow storm. There was next to no wind and the temps were pretty mild, making it an excellent day for shooting the falling flakes. I was up late last night editing and ended up with 55 shots from the storm. These three came out nice. Hope you like them. I’m out again today for another walkabout, sans the falling snow.

CN Tower & Canadian Flag

FamilyDay19-111-EDITED

I shot this one before, as have a million others, I’m sure. It’s a pretty popular spot for Toronto photographers. Usually once I’ve taken “my” photo of a popular spot I don’t bother shooting it again, but a week back I happened on this spot when the sun was in just the right location, so I decided to take another one. Hope you like it.

I like the windows on this building. Makes for some fun reflections. I shot this on a beautiful Saturday a week or so back. Coincidentally, the Canadian head office of the financial firm I used to work at is located in this building. Hope you like it.

February in Toronto

FamilyDay19-175-Edit-EDITED

I snapped this over the weekend. It was really sunny and the skyscrapers downtown were reflecting the sunshine like crazy. Made for a ton of photo opportunities.

Boy what a long weekend. I made it out for full walkabouts on all three days. Not sure how much I walked. Maybe 30 kms. Hard to say. Yesterday was Family Day here in Ontario, which is a holiday. I for sure walked like 10 kms yesterday alone. Then did a full workout when I got home. Slept like a baby last night. Most of my shots yesterday were driven by the play of light and shadow. There weren’t many people in the downtown core and when it’s like that, like on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day, I focus more on architecture, since there are so few people around for street shots. Anyway, I like how this one turned out. Hope you had a nice weekend, too.

Skater Kid

DavidPizza-13-Edit-2-EDITED

I shot this a week back at the rink next to the Ryerson Image Centre in downtown Toronto. The light was just right and all I had to do was wait it out until the kid skated into my light. I’m pleased with the results. Hope you like it, too.
