At Night

I tend to not do a lot of night photography, and I really have to change that! It is a real gap in my work. I did do a night shoot the other evening with fellow photographer friend Bill Smith: I love the night time look of the Murphy’s Law pub in Toronto at Queen St / Kingston Road. We set up our cameras on tripods across the street an shot during gaps in the traffic.

Without Colour

Today, one of the first of a couple more images from the White Water Walk near Niagara Falls, Ontario. Rather than focusing on the water, I am focusing on the walkway beside the rapids. This image (taken with my Hasselblad 500C/M and 50mm/4 Distagon lens) was originally shot on Lomography 400 colour film, but after scanning, I think I like the black and white version better, with its emphasis on textures.

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.

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.

My 1000th Post

This post is the 1000th on my photo blog since its inception, so I wanted to pick an image that fit the occasion. This image from recent day in Banff works for me: it reminds me that photography is a journey as much as a destination, and that the destination will always be partially hidden, awaiting discovery.
