Night Shooting

The great thing about wide angle lenses is there ability to be handheld at slower shutter speeds, like the 1/15th of a second used for this image taken recently in the Beaches.

Flowers on a Bike

There are a few of these bicycle/flower combos on Queen Street in the Beaches: an ad for a local business. In colour they are a cheery yellow, but I like the look of black and white on a cloudy day.

Winter Dock

On Saturday I took my Mamiya RZ67 down to the Beaches. It was a very still, very grey day, and sometimes it was hard to see where the water ended and the sky began.

End of Season

According to the calendar, we have a few more days of summer left, but the end of the season is near. I was at the Beaches last night, and the weather was lovely, the atmosphere peaceful, but to me tinged with a wistfulness, an awareness of the passing of time.

The Brighter Side

On the night of the Nice attacks, Janice and I went for a walk on the Boardwalk on the Beaches. I had left my phone at home by mistake and since I use it for a meter the exposure was an estimate but I got it. With so much darkness these days, it was nice to capture some of the brighter side of humanity.
