City in Colour

A few more colour street shots for you. I’d love to post one a day as I used to, but WordPress messed with their publishing tool and made it far more arduous and time consuming that it used to be, … Continue reading

Urban Landscapes

Got out both days this weekend for a little photo therapy. The above shots are more urban landscapes than pure street photography. Boy, this is absolutely my favourite weather — not too hot and no humidity. Simply, fall jacket weather. … Continue reading

Night Street Photography

Thought I’d share some of my colour night photography. To be honest, I’m not that skilled at night photography. I find that editing colour night images very difficult. The amount of tweaking I have to do in Lightroom (LR) with … Continue reading
