Take us to your leader

Snapped this back in early June. I’ve always thought this art installation looked like aliens. The CN Tower makes the shot for me. Hope you’re enjoying Canada Day. Me, I’ve been busy moving a friend of mine these past two … Continue reading

Lady in Red

Shot this about three weeks back. I really liked the light here so I simply stuck around and waited for a strong subject to enter my frame. Her red outfit really pops here, which is why I left it in … Continue reading
