Street portraits

I ran into this guy on Yonge Street. What a character. Talked non stop a mile a minute. Derek’s his name. Nice enough guy and he knows how to work it as a model. Just got lucky running into him.

Spectral

I shot this during one of my long walkabouts on Christmas day. The mannequin in the window and the reflection of the buildings in the storefront glass seems to be working nicely. Sort of has a haunting feel to it. … Continue reading

Honest Ed
