White bus leaving

I’m really pleased with this shot. To me, it’s quintessential street photography. It’s simple, with really only three main elements – the bus, the woman and the crosswalk. Yet there’s a story there, if you wish to see it. Perhaps … Continue reading

CNE Gondola

This one dates back to August, when the Canadian National Exhibition (aka The CNE, or The Ex) was on. Here in Toronto the CNE always represents the end of summer. It starts roughly the same time the “back to school” … Continue reading

Rainy night in Toronto

Went out for a walkabout Sunday with a buddy of mine. We ended up getting back after dark, and it was raining. Nothing better than street photography at night in the rain. This shot came out rather nice. Most of … Continue reading

Scooter in the rain

This is sort of a good example of making a photo rather than taking a photo. I’d come across this interesting set of stairs and knew it would make a great element in my photo, but I needed more. Either … Continue reading

Halloween on Church St

So they closed a couple of blocks of Church St here in Toronto for a big Halloween celebration. For those not familiar with Toronto, Church Street is where they hold the big Pride parade each summer. Anyway, I went down … Continue reading

Foot bridge on Queen

Over the summer they replaced the foot bridge that spans Queen Street and links Toronto’s famous Eaton Centre with The Hudson’s Bay department store. I took some shots of Queen while the bridge was down and some shots when the … Continue reading

March against Extinction

So last weekend I caught up with a group protesting ivory trade and the looming extinction of elephants and rhinos. It’s sad we still have to march to raise awareness for this sort of stuff. One would hope we’d have … Continue reading
