Character On the Beach

There of are photographer friends of mine who are absolutely fearless when it comes to asking strangers if they can take their photograph. I find that very difficult and have to force myself to do it. When I saw this gentlemen near the boardwalk in the Beaches I had to ask if I could take his picture, and the answer was yes. 🙂

Today i got some E6 (slide) film back that I had shot a few weeks ago at the large Beach Volleyball area at Ashbridges Bay here in Toronto. The scene looked a bit surrealistic to me.

Dealing With the Wires

I love the look of the old firehall in the Beaches, but I have never gotten an image of the entire building that I am completely happy with. If only all those wires were underground!

Back to the Trees

Today I am posting another tree image, from the Beaches. Later this summer some of my tree photography will be featured in an online magazine so I am thrilled about that. Stay tuned for more details!

Cat and Mouse With The Light

On Saturday morning this past weekend I back in the Beaches, “playing cat and mouse with the light” as I described it in a Facebook post. The light changed moment by moment, from mundane to magical and back again. This was one of the better moments 🙂
