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

Toronto Old City Hall

I snapped this back in early August. Bay street was closed for some weekend construction work, which allowed me the opportunity to stand far enough back to get the entire building in the shot. They sure don’t build them like … Continue reading

Toronto Toronto

I got out for my first walkabout downtown with my new Fujifilm X Pro 2. Being not that used to shooting primes, I had a hard time with it and didn’t get many shots with which I was really pleased, … Continue reading

Food truck at night

I shot this one with the Fujifilm X Pro 2, sporting the 16mm f1.4 lens. Here’s an odd thing, though. I shot this at f4 and 1/60th of a second, which is pretty much the same settings I’d use with … Continue reading

Blurry skaters

I shot this on Christmas day. I was with my buddy and he suggested I slow down my shutter to catch some skater blur. I’d never thought of that before so I flipped it to shutter priority and stopped it … Continue reading

The faces of City Hall

The posters of faces laid out in a circle out front of Toronto City Hall are part of a Nuit Blanche art installation from a week or so back. This is an annual all night city wide art show, which … Continue reading

Under the upper deck at Toronto City Hall

I shot this a couple of weeks back. Wasn’t quite what I was looking for, but I still like the angles and curves. Ideally, there would have been someone sitting on one of the benches. Or that woman in the … Continue reading
