This was my first outing with the Mississauga Camera Club, and the destination was the “Graffiti Alleys” close to Queen Street West. Because it’s so busy there, I thought the graffiti would be very dirty and painted over each other, compared to that in the abandoned places I’ve visited. But it was relatively clean and fresh and I saw some good stuff.
Even though this wasn’t particularly a Contemplative Photography outing, as I’ve been doing, that new approach is definitely influencing me. I could really feel this, and it’s good. I also limited my day to 36 shots with the instant playback turned off. Some of the others thought this was strange, as they were shooting hundreds of shots, and I only 22. I ended up deleting only 2, and spent very little time in post-processing (which is the whole idea).
The other thing about this post is that I’m now moving away from the Flash slideshow viewer, and will be using a jQuery slideshow from now on. I may convert all the 2011 albums. The advantage here is that you can view my photos with a non-Flash capable system, such as iPod or iPad, and earlier Android.
I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did taking them.
