Ardean Peters: Toronto Photographer | People & Light

on photography

These girls (jacqui, tru) are my friends. Though we’ve never met. We share in common our love(s) for photography. That is what connected us. And in that it is so wonderful to look back over the years and see how we’ve (yes me too!) have grown. Actually, it’s the fact that I can look at them and see their growth, that I’m able to then see my growth. How we’ve struggled and wondered about our skill in photography; How we’ve struggled and wondered about our direction & focus; And how we can present and share it to the world (how many site re-designs! Lol 🙂 How we can share our selves. I think that is it partly. For me at least, I think… That in the end, my photography is representing me.

And I wonder what it says to people. Do they get the right message? What is the message? But in the end I think I just want to share. And I (do) want someone to enjoy what I share. I don’t want silence or no response. I want someone else to say, ‘hey, i get that. I like that.’

Isn’t that a lot what life is about?


today’s pics inspired by my cell phone shot’s this morning on insta.gram, with a theme of “Interior light” (because it was a rainy light-less day; i looked for other light). Except the last two – just liked/happened on those. all: xti, 50mm f1.8, manual focus, sharpened for web only.

i really like this one.

i am no street photographer. i LOVE street photography – but i am not ballsy enough. this, was a completely random, lucky shot.


  1. So sweet and thank you for the mention ❤
    I love all these images ~ esp the brick/ivy post. I envy your street scenes. I would definitely attempt them if I had a fellow photographer with me. The phone is a great buffer but it would be much better to use a regular cam.


    • You’re welcome! And these streets scenes are particularly easy – because I don’t consider them street photography. Much harder to take photos of people – with these, I just stop and snap!

    Okay thank you so much for the mention as well. Gosh, why do we have to be so far?. I love what you have been doing with your work lately, I see your colors all over both the cell and camera shots. I think we feel like we know each other because looking at each others work is like looking at who we are and the bits and pieces we love. Who knows, im just so glad that we are able to keep in contact even with many miles between us. You inspire me, keep doing what you’re doing girl and thank you for sharing your world with us. Xoxo.
