Hiding in Wait

Another image from Hamilton: this time, it’s a GO train, and to me with its green matching the trees, it seemed like a creature hiding, waiting to pounce.

At the GO station

On the way back from Hamilton I had a moment to take this while our GO train pulled into the station. The original  negative is square format, but I ended up cropping the final image.

Morning Light

From my recent weekend in Hamilton. Walking around the downtown core around 8 am I loved seeing how the morning light lit up old buildings such as this one.

A Colourful City

Hamilton, Ontario is still saddled (unfairly in my opinion) with the reputation of being a gritty and unattractive city. I think the opposite is true: it is a city of fascinating architecture and splashes of colour, even in the most mundane items.

In the Alley

In the recent meet-up in Hamilton, the dramatic lighting in an alley caught my eye.

Art Deco Exterior

I am a big fan of Art Deco, and I love the exterior of the GO transit station in Hamilton, Ontario. A fine example of this style.

Dry Fountain

Another image from The Hamilton G.A.S. Meet up last weekend. After a brilliantly sunny morning, it clouded over at lunch time, but even the overcast light seems to suit the Polypan F film I used.

The Expression

I was in Hamilton this past weekend at a social gathering with some of my best Social Media friends. On the way from supper Saturday to a pub we walked through the beginning of that evening’s Hamilton Art crawl. The street was already crowded with artists, musicians, performers and pedestrians of all kinds. I had literally not much more than a second or two to get this shot; technically it’s not perfect, but I like it — I wonder what the story is behind expression of the woman on the right! There must be a story there!
