um ya. random and bad attempts at street photography. that starbucks – i like how the corner of the store (camera left) is all glass/windows and a real street photographer would take a really cool photo of that guy, sitting by the window, with his head down in the book. and then i looked down … Continue reading bad photos
and so some more interior light. oh but the first image, I do love so much. first rule of photography: stop and take the picture at the moment you see it. i started to walk by and said to myself that i’d stop on the way back. if i had done that – you know … Continue reading rainy days & nights in Toronto
the plus is a half-hearted attempt at street photography, of the guy sitting near the curb. i never know the best approach taking photos of homeless people. so i don’t. i guess i don’t want it to be thought that i’m exploiting them. i just always wonder why we avoid them in general. how easily … Continue reading interior light plus
A fellow photographer, Kim Lovell | http://www.kimlovell.com, forwarded this article on “How to be creative – the short honest truth” to me. It is SO freaking true! Creative people don’t sit around daydreaming – without action! No, they DO SOMETHING, anything, to make something happen. To make something; create something new. To TRY and LEARN … Continue reading Creativity | WORK-ing on it
My friend Sandy is getting married to Richard. Sandy is awesome and so I know Richard is too. How do I know Sandy is awesome? Where do I even start? Well, it goes back to my sister waiting for her condo to be finished and us finding a group on facebook for the people who had bought units in her building. I think Sandy was either the creator of the group or just very vocal in it 🙂 I joined the group for my sister and yada, yada, yada, (ya, I’m pulling a Seinfeld), I connected with Sandy. From then on out, I have been blessed to have found not only a friend, but a true supporter and believer – in me! Sandy has ALWAYS encouraged me and praised my photography (even when I wasn’t feeling it was praise-worthy). She hired me to take photos of her then new kitten (hi Simon!) and photos at her dad’s old house. I can’t express how much she is always cheering me on and offering support and kind words – in EVERYTHING I do. It makes me almost sad, because she – who was a total stranger to start – has so much belief in me, while I still have days that I doubt myself (I think all artists do). So below are the images from their engagement session at U of T campus Toronto. I’m a little late in posting – as their wedding is just under 4 weeks away! They’ll be having their ceremony at the lovely Berkeley Church in Toronto. I’ve been there twice now, so hopefully that will calm my nerves when it comes to their big day. Yes nerves! If there is a wedding that I want the photography and events to go as smooth as it possibly can, it’s their’s! I know though that with Sandy and Richard in front of my lens again and with all the lovely people who Sandy attracts to herself, that it will be an awesome experience.

Today was a good day. Still feeling a little tired, with the changes in my diet and working on getting the right balance of foods. Saw my new friend again today, who gave me this lovely message yesterday. How nice is that? Today’s photos (minus the first) are the result of a good walk after … Continue reading vigor
