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

Change is good

I was watching another photographer shoot this homeless guy. The photographer took his shots from quite a distance and also from behind. Perhaps it’s just me, but I’m tired of the staggering number of street photographs of people from behind … Continue reading

Change please

I shot this kitty corner to Dundas Square a couple of weeks back. I don’t often post homeless/street people, but in this case I was drawn to the guy’s hat and the nice light. After an initial edit in Lightroom … Continue reading

Street Portraiture

I shot this portrait a few weeks back during an outing downtown. I processed it the day I shot it, but this is a re-processed version using Silver Efex Pro 2. That’s a plug-in for Lightroom that gives you more … Continue reading

No place to nap

This woman had set up shop on this park bench. It wasn’t that cold out if you were dressed for it, but if you were trying to sleep on a bench it must have been freezing. I shot this with … Continue reading
