Bald as a baby

EastrSundy-376-EDITED

The guy was looking at me and as I went for the camera he turned away, likely sensing I was about the make a photograph. In the end I’m not sure this isn’t actually a better result than if he’d been looking in my direction. It’s more of a fun photo than anything. I wish there’d been someone on the sidewalk approaching me, like just a few feet further away than he was. Hey, you can’t always get what you want, right?

For something a little different I thought I’d share some shots of my photography buddies. These are people with whom I often roam the streets of downtown Toronto. I won’t bother with names, since it won’t make a different to you anyway, but I will say I truly enjoy their company when we get together and am very grateful for their friendship.

Lady with red rose dress

EastrSundy-194-EDITED

She was out promoting her store, so I assume she was a model of sorts. When I asked if I could take her photo, she immediately knew how to pose, which was nice. I got lucky that the wind caught her hair just as I fired the shot. Very beautiful woman. I snapped maybe four shots but this was the best of the bunch.

Drive by

SundayWithDavid-242-EDITED

I shot this on the 23rd of April during a walkabout downtown with another photographer buddy of mine. The light was bouncing off the building behind me and illuminated the woman in the car. I thought it made for a nice street shot. This is on Spadina Ave, south of Chinatown in Toronto.

Runner in black

ContactwithDavid-196-EDITED

I was trying to figure out how to frame this shot, as there was something about the yellow lift and the white wall that attracted me, when I notice this dude running down the street and realize he’s going to run right through my shot. He ended up being the added element I needed. Hope you like it. Happy May!

Dancing Trees of Spring

EastrSundy-446-EDITED

I love how black & white can be tweaked to make for a nice contrasty scene like this. The shot was nice in colour but I much prefer it in b/w when the trees are bare of leaves. Anyway, hope you like it.

Peek-a-bo

SyrianProtest2017-617-EDITED

Shot this a couple of weeks back at Kensington Market. I think it would have worked better with a person standing in the doorway, but back from the entrance enough to be in the shadows.

Random

AprilFoolsWalk2017-634-EDITED

I shot this a couple of weeks back. Just something about the grouping of people that attracted me. Looking at it now with fresh eyes I can see how the shot might have been better with the guy in the forefront a little more to the left. Would have made for a more balanced photo.
