A rare selfie

Not big on photos of myself and not big on taking selfies, but I figure if they were good enough for Vivian Maier, then they should be good enough for me too, right? If you are into street photography but … Continue reading

Meet Kenzie

For a little change I thought today I’d share my new (well, relatively new) camera, Kenzie. My big Canon 5D is named Wilson, after the ball in the Tom Hanks movie, Cast Away. Kenzie is named after Kensington Market, which … Continue reading

Play me a song, dude

I shot this a couple of weeks back during a walkabout through Kensington Market on Pedestrian Sunday. The guy was playing his guitar and not paying any attention to the crowds of people meandering by. Kensington Market was packed, as … Continue reading
