White bus leaving

I’m really pleased with this shot. To me, it’s quintessential street photography. It’s simple, with really only three main elements – the bus, the woman and the crosswalk. Yet there’s a story there, if you wish to see it. Perhaps … Continue reading

CNE Gondola

This one dates back to August, when the Canadian National Exhibition (aka The CNE, or The Ex) was on. Here in Toronto the CNE always represents the end of summer. It starts roughly the same time the “back to school” … Continue reading

Rainy night in Toronto

Went out for a walkabout Sunday with a buddy of mine. We ended up getting back after dark, and it was raining. Nothing better than street photography at night in the rain. This shot came out rather nice. Most of … Continue reading

Halloween on Church St

So they closed a couple of blocks of Church St here in Toronto for a big Halloween celebration. For those not familiar with Toronto, Church Street is where they hold the big Pride parade each summer. Anyway, I went down … Continue reading

A moooving portrait

Drove out to the country for the day today. Visited Port Hope and Cobourg with a friend of mine. Had fun and got some shots as usual, but it wasn’t until the drive back that we lucked out with a … Continue reading

Raindrops keep falling on my head

I shot this a week back while meeting an old friend for coffee who’d just returned from a photographic assignment in the Middle East. We were on the second floor of Starbucks on the Danforth when it began to rain. … Continue reading

Foot bridge on Queen

Over the summer they replaced the foot bridge that spans Queen Street and links Toronto’s famous Eaton Centre with The Hudson’s Bay department store. I took some shots of Queen while the bridge was down and some shots when the … Continue reading
