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.

100 University

FamilyDay19-214-Edit-EDITED

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.

Watching the world go by

DavidGeoffBulger-98-EDITED

Got out yesterday shooting with a couple of buddies. Came across this store window cat on Queen West. Such a cutie, but the moment I raised my camera to him to wouldn’t look at it. Finally my buddy got his attention and I got this shot. Just what the internet needs, more cat photography. ūüôā

Hippy Van

SuperBowlSunday-15-EDITED

I shot this yesterday during a walkabout downtown. It was nice to get out with the camera again after a week or so of absolutely bone-chilling, frigid temps. This is one of those shots where I think a person walking through it might have been an unwanted distraction from the van. I also processed a landscape version of this in b/w, but to be honest I prefer the colour shot. I don’t know if it’ll make my colour book, but we’ll see. Hope you had a nice weekend, too.

Winter Beach

davidlizziebeach-318-edited

Not sure if I already shared this one with you. I snapped it back in February of last year. It looks warm but in fact it was brutally cold that day. The red thing in the distance is an art installation that makes use of the lifeguard stands that are not in use this time of year. Anyway, hope you like it.

Chinatown

davidpizza-98-edit-edited

I saw this person and sort of hid away and waited until he turned toward me. I snapped this from the hip and I don’t think he saw me. The expression on his face I found interesting; however, I’m not sure how comfortable I am with this shot. I mean, sometimes you have to question whether it’s right to take a photo. I probably should have left him alone. The only saving grace is I’m certain he wasn’t aware I was taking a picture.

Tea Cups

I snapped this one two days before Christmas our front of Toronto City Hall where they were having a Christmas Market. Took a few tries to get the subject sharp with the rest of the shop blurred, but eventually I got it. Hope you like it.
