Crossword

I saw this guy sitting in a cafe window during one of our remarkably warm February days a couple of weeks back and snapped this shot. I took it with my Fuji X Pro 2 sporting the 23mm f2 lens … Continue reading

A rare selfie

Not big on photos of myself and not big on taking selfies, but I figure if they were good enough for Vivian Maier, then they should be good enough for me too, right? If you are into street photography but … Continue reading

Meet Kenzie

For a little change I thought today I’d share my new (well, relatively new) camera, Kenzie. My big Canon 5D is named Wilson, after the ball in the Tom Hanks movie, Cast Away. Kenzie is named after Kensington Market, which … Continue reading

Visions of days past

I’m really happy with this one. The poster girl looks like a younger version of the woman waiting on the streetcar. She wasn’t looking my way when I framed the shot, but she turned just as I was ready to … Continue reading
