Human Backpack

I shot this about 10 days back and in doing so broke one of my personal rules (as opposed to one of the rules of composition). That is, don’t shoot people from behind without a very good reason. Why not, … Continue reading

Nike Airs

When I approached this homeless guy he was sound asleep outside a derelict storefront. At first I thought to shoot the whole scene, which would offer up more of a story. Instead, I shot only his shoes and lower legs, … Continue reading

Legs

Shot this at Dundas Square Saturday afternoon. Seemed odd to see a tourist bus with a poster of legs on it, and buddy sitting there with one missing. In street photography we call that “juxta” (short for juxtaposition). Hope you … Continue reading

Puppet

I shot this on Queen St near City Hall late March. If his sign doesn’t encourage people to contribute I don’t know what will. He’s actually an articulate and intelligent gentleman. He doesn’t like using shelters because he’s been robbed … Continue reading

Storefront Chef

Shot this about a week or so back at Kensington Market. They make Japanese style pancakes at this place. I’ve yet to try it but it sure looks good.

Mind The Puddle

Got out for a good walkabout downtown in the rain today. Noticed this big puddle and parked myself waiting for everything to come together. Cars would drive through the puddle but with no people walking by. People would walk by … Continue reading

Small audience

I snapped a few shots of this dude playing guitar but when the little child in the stroller came along I knew this was the keeper of the lot. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, just been busy and … Continue reading

Another spiderman

Shot this with my new Fuji 27mm (41mm eq.) f2.8 prime lens, at f2.8. I’ve only been out with for one day but so far it seems like a really sharp, contrasty lens. Not really my go-to focal length, but … Continue reading
