The Only Cafe Portrait Series: Nuşan
I met with Nuşan yesterday morning. I really like expressions that are slightly ambiguous! As with all portraits for this project, I used my Sony A7ii with my vintage Helios 44 58mm f/2 lens.

A Day of Drizzle
There hasn’t been a lot of rain recently in East York, Ontario, until the last few days. But this past Sunday was different. Rain overnight, plus some drizzle in the morning made for some interesting droplets. I shot with my iPhone 13, as it is pretty resistant to moisture.
On Queen Street in the Beaches
Yesterday morning in the Beaches. The light was soft and gentle, welcoming you into the day.
