Toronto Streets, in Colour

Back to some colour street work. The above four images are recent. I typically refrain from shooting people from behind, but with the first image I was drawn to the little teddy hanging from her backpack. Hope you like them.

Six dogs and a cat

You may not know this about me, but I’m a complete sucker for dogs and cats and photograph them whenever I can. Here are but a few from the past few weeks.

Once we reopen our economy and this pandemic is behind us, I’m thinking to start running street photography workshops. One segment will be on how to overcome your fear of photographing strangers in public. The first lesson will be to engaged and photograph people with their pets, since those who own dogs tend to be very open to being photographed, being they are proud parents. I also have a trick to photographing dogs without having them jump all over the place with excitement, which often results in a ruined, blurry shot.

Fairmont Royal York Hotel

Some shots I made early last November of one of Canada’s most iconic hotels. This is before our current lockdown came into effect. Hope you like them.

From Regent Park to Kensington Market

Here are some more of my recent colour images from around downtown Toronto. The first image I made only this afternoon. Thought I better get it before the big snowfall heading our way tomorrow. I’ve been waiting for a sunny day for a few weeks now so I could capture it.

Hope you’re all getting on well in the new year. Won’t be too much longer before things return to normal. Sadly, the number of failed retailers, restaurant and cafes in our city is just staggering. Such a shame. I hope to never see a year like last’s again in my lifetime.

Welcome to 2021!

Happy New Year, everyone… Here are a few colour street photos from the past couple of weeks. I didn’t get up to much over the holidays, other than getting out for long walks almost daily. My weekday walks are mostly without my camera, just for exercise, mind you. And this year I didn’t take my camera with me for my Christmas Day walkabout, but that’s okay. Anyway, hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

You can check out my black & white street photography on my Instagram feed, if you like.

Merry Christmas!

Here’s wishing you all a very Merry Christmas with your families. Stay safe!

Me, I’ll be heading downtown shortly for my annual Christmas walkabout with the camera. We had a bit of snow overnight so it should be fun.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. It was pretty chilly here in Toronto but thankfully no precipitation. Got out both days with my camera and got a couple of keepers along the way.
