Yard sale in the park

Vaca17Day6-75-EDITED

There’s a lovely park out in the west end of Toronto called Trinity Bellwoods. Well, a week or two back I happened by it and there was this giant yard sale taking place. Everything you could imagine. I strolled around it a bit, mostly looking for a shot. Finally found a couple of mirrors to engage with. Hope you like it.

Marching on Spadina

ContactDavidLizzie-196-EDITED

There was a big march through Chinatown a couple of weeks back in support of Falun Gong, which if memory serves me is a practice very much frowned upon by the Chinese government. I thought this group of ladies were particularly colourful and proud. This one dates back to early May.

On another note, I broke down and purchased another lens. This time a Fuji 18mm f2 prime. That’s around 28mm full frame equivalent. It’s still in transit but I’m hoping to have it in a week or so. I’m off work the week after next so it’s arrival this coming week at some point would certainly be a blessing. Can’t wait to try it out.

Mary fenced in

Hamilton17-291-EDITED

Made it out to Hamilton yesterday. For those who don’t know, Hamilton is (was) a steel town about an hour west of Toronto. Had a great day out there. The weather was perfect. This house was located behind a church and to get this shot I had to hold the camera way over my head and hope for the best. I wanted to use the fence to help frame the composition. Made a bunch of attempts until I got one I liked. Anyway, Happy Sunday. Hope you like it.

Going up?

EastrSundy-79-EDITED

I shot this at the Toronto Eaton Centre, a large mall in the heart of downtown Toronto. This goes back to April. It’s cropped from the original, due to the fact I was shooting with my 23mm prime on the Fuji X Pro 2. Hope you like it.

Not so street

Vaca17Day2-83-EDITED

Here’s a photo that’s not so street, like not by a long shot. I took it from Toronto’s harbour front a few days back. It was a pretty nice sky. Hope you like it.

So a week back there was a big rib fest right in the heart of downtown Toronto. I thought I’d share a series of shots from it, rather than just one. It was very successful with huge lineups to get fed. And of course PETA was there to protest the killing and consumption of animals. Hope you like the series.

Bald as a baby

EastrSundy-376-EDITED

The guy was looking at me and as I went for the camera he turned away, likely sensing I was about the make a photograph. In the end I’m not sure this isn’t actually a better result than if he’d been looking in my direction. It’s more of a fun photo than anything. I wish there’d been someone on the sidewalk approaching me, like just a few feet further away than he was. Hey, you can’t always get what you want, right?

For something a little different I thought I’d share some shots of my photography buddies. These are people with whom I often roam the streets of downtown Toronto. I won’t bother with names, since it won’t make a different to you anyway, but I will say I truly enjoy their company when we get together and am very grateful for their friendship.
