Kensington Market at Dusk

Here’s a shot I snapped a week back at Kensington Market just after dusk. These sorts of shots tend to work best in colour, in my mind. Boy, that Fujifilm 18mm/f2 prime sure isn’t good at focusing in low light. … 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

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.
