Golden sunset kicking out long shadows

I shot this a couple of weeks back during a walkabout downtown. The one benefit of being downtown all the time is you learn where the light is happening at various times a day. It’s always all about the light, … Continue reading

A big change in scenery from my last photo, eh? No snow, warmer weather, nice sunset. Spring is around the corner. This shot’s from last weekend, actually. I got out yesterday for another epic walkabout with my friend Andrea. We … Continue reading

BarRab

I shot this back at the beginning of the month. In anticipation of a nice snowfall in the frecast I brought Wilson (my Canon 5D Mrk III) out to play, with a 50mm f1.4 prime on him. The thought was … Continue reading

Kensington Market at Dusk

Bay St Trees

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

37 stories

A friend of mine gave me a tour of his offices, located in the heart of Toronto’s financial district. Pretty sweet view from the 37th floor. Unfortunately I picked up some reflections from shooting through the windows.
