A Ravine of Shadows

A number of weeks ago, I went to check out Williamson Park Ravine in East Toronto not far from where I live. It was an amazing location; a very dense canopy of trees made for gloomy shadows through which the sunlight only occasionally shone.

Run Away With Me

I saw this graffiti on a disused, derelict railroad track in Toronto’s Don Valley. I would love to know the story behind it. How did the story end, or did the story even have a beginning? Perhaps it was nothing more than a shy dream, never to be spoken out loud.

A Moment In Time

Love locks capture a moment in time. I look at them and wonder how the stories they tell evolved. Was the permanence an illusion?

A Wash of Colour

It has been a while; let’s just say the summer has been challenging, and some things have suffered as a result, like my photo blog. I will try to do better.

I was out this afternoon with a lens I have not used in a while: my Lensbaby Sweet35. I love its primitive characteristics, and the way colour seems to wash through the image.

Loving the Swirl

I was in the Beaches again this past weekend, and my lens of choice was my 58mm/f2 Helios 44/2. I love the overall look and swirl of this lens when used wide open!
