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

Behind the counter

I snapped this last fall on Queen West. The name of the restaurant escapes me at the moment. It reminded me of an older diner from the 50s, so I played with the colours to give it a sort of … 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

Three young men sitting on a rock

I came across these young guys on my way back to the car after a walkabout downtown. They were nice enough to let me photograph them. I think it really worked out well. They all look very relaxed and natural. … Continue reading

Rasta dude outside the liquor store

I’ve actually shot this guy a few times over the years. He hangs out front of the LCBO (our gov run liquor stores) in the beaches. When the liquor store relocated a few blocks west around 18 months back, he … Continue reading

Can I have a lick please?

I shot this one Saturday at the Little India Street Fest in Toronto. It was one of those very lucky hip shots where I barely had time to raise my camera and fire off a shot without thinking or composing. … Continue reading
