Urban Autumn

Well I finally dragged myself out today to take some photos. And boy was I due. To be honest, I have not been going out much of late. Literally, there have been days where I haven’t left the house. I’ve even gone more than a whole day without talking to another sole. Even Tom Hanks called and said, “WTF Man, get your ass out and socialize.” (The joke works best if you’ve seen the movie Cast Away.) I don’t know why I’ve been in such a funk. Even today I just wasn’t into it. I took a couple of hundred shots of which most are rubbish. This one I do like. I was casually taking shots of this small group of trees down in Toronto’s financial district thinking how great it would be if someone rode by on a bike, when suddenly this young girl comes along and parks herself down right in my shot. Perfect. I’ll take what I can get. Anyway, still feeling pretty funky and grey. Tomorrow’s Thanksgiving here in Canada. I know it’s in November for those of you south of our border. I was supposed to meet up with my Dad and go to a local restaurant for turkey dinner tonight but he forgot and had already made other plans. Oh well. So Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends. Hope you have a good one.

    Hi: We have a mutual friend. Michelle. She told me about her friend “The Lazy Photographer” because I have recently got back into taking pictures and have just purchased a Canon Rebel XS. I decided to check out your pics and I just want you to know….your pics are AWESOME. I love them. I can only hope that one day I have the eye that you do. You take great shots. That’s all. Happy Thanksgiving !

    • Hi Frances,
      Thanks so much for dropping by and saying hello. Congrats on your new camera. The XS is a nice model. There’s a really good photography book you might want to check out called, Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson. If you haven’t already read it, I would highly recommend it. If you end up posting your photos on Flickr or on your own blog, please let me know so I can follow you. Be sure to say Hi to Michelle for me. We got together for a drink a couple of months back. Cheers, and have fun! 🙂

  2. Hey, funkmeister–get the funk out of the house! It’s not good breathing in all that stale air.
    Dude–10/11 is Genocide Day in the States–no kiddiing–in absolute defiance of all factual reality there it’s a national holiday for a ambitious, greed driven sociopath. Go figure.
    So much for those turkey legs, eh?
    So–pops or not–go out and eat your favorite food at your favorite OUT of the house place–cafe–ice cream shoppe, bakery. Am I being a pain yet?
    I’d suggest getting that Never in Color dude along for the yums but, hey, he’s posting dead squirrels in the road photos so I have a question or two about his attitude too. Interesting photo nonetheless.
    So not so lazy dave—be kind to yourself asap.

    • Thanks 47WB. As a matter of fact, I did end up going out to a local watering hole for a couple of pints with my buddy who is undertaking the major house renovation. I had leftover Indian food in the fridge so I reheated that for supper earlier. Again, thanks for your words of encouragement. You’re never a pain. 😉

  3. Beautiful shot, beautiful moment! I love the contrast between the bright autumn trees and the blue sky. The lonely girl is great. She looks like she’s going throught the blues, just like you were at the time!
