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

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

Finger

So I broke down and purchased a Fujinon XF 18mm f2 R prime lens for my Fujifilm X Pro 2. Ordered it through eBay brand new from Thailand. Was really worried about it since I’ve never ordered anything from eBay … Continue reading

Pink umbrella

I shot this in the summer at Kensington Market. It’s funny how happy I was with it at the time. Now I’m just okay with it. That’s what happens when you let your photographs percolate a while. You look at … Continue reading

Umbrella in black & white

I doctored this one up a lot in Lightroom. Perhaps I over did it, I don’t know. Typically (and this is a tip for those new to post processing), when I do anything that’s pretty funky I’ll save it but … Continue reading

Um, not raining, sidewalk’s dry, gang

Frankly, I was drawn to the umbrellas, which was pointed out to me by a friend at the time. Then I noticed it wasn’t even raining. That’s sorta the bonus element. The guy in the leather coat seems to be … Continue reading
