Quiet Queen Street

I shot this a month back. Things have picked up a lot since then. The Eaton Centre (our huge downtown mall) still remains closed, mind you, but some retailers have been allowed to reopen under certain strict conditions. Still no … Continue reading

Things are looking up

I don’t usually shoot a lot of skyscraper shots like this (what I call urban landscapes, or perhaps architecture) but with so few people out and about I’m having a hard time focusing on street photography alone. This pandemic and … Continue reading
