Early Morning in the Guildwood

I have not been to Guildwood Park in Scarborough for quite some time, but I went out early last Saturday morning. Around 7 am I had the park to myself, except for a couple of joggers.

Not a Summer Saturday

On any summer Saturday, this faux temple in Guildwood Park plays host to one wedding party after another, there for wedding photos. No weddings here in the winter!

Background as Foreground

One more image from this past weekend’s shoot with Jennifer. As I think I’ve mentioned before, my strong preference for portraits is close-up: I am captivated by the human landscape of the face. I have to force myself to at least some of the time take a few steps back and attempt a portrait that is as much about the background as it is the subject. Guildwood Park in Toronto has a lot of great backgrounds to use, and as soon as I saw this sculpture, I knew that it would be perfect for a non-close-up image.
