Kensington Pedestrian Sunday

As a photographer and humanitarian (I say that with a BIG 😉 WINK) , I love nothing better than a street festival. When the street is closed off to vehicle traffic, people are different. They smile more, less stressed, more… Continue Reading →

Flirting is our national sport!

“What?!”, I asked Alain, our photography guide for the day, “I thought soccer was the national sport of Cuba.” “Actually,” he replied, “it’s baseball, but flirting is a close second!” I had hired Alain Gutierrez as a photography guide for… Continue Reading →

… Develop and digitally scan the film… $20,     …Pentax ME SLR camera (circa 1974)… priceless!   It was back to the past at so many levels on this cold, windy Good Friday at the religious procession in Little Italy.  … Continue Reading →

Brockport, NY

This weekend bike trip was through the Toronto Bicycle Club, formerly High Park Bicycle Club. Nobody I’ve talked to can understand why the name was changed, when High Park really says who we are, but that’s another story. Brockport is… Continue Reading →

A Day in the life

No, not John Lennon, just me! And I’m not comparing myself to John, but it’s been rather boring lately and I’m reminded of the song. Anyway, things are changing, as I had an interesting time today, and met a few… Continue Reading →

Chicago Click-On

So, this very young guy tells me if I give him a lot of money, he’ll talk to me and let me walk around Chicago and take pictures. Hmmmmm. Should I do this? Yes, and I did, and Eric Kim’s… Continue Reading →

The Spice Market

We were walking through the Spice Market in Istanbul, dodging people and carts, when I noticed what looked like an alleyway leading away from the market lane. Chantal was hesitant, but I said “let’s explore”, and she warily followed me… Continue Reading →

Ice Fishing on the Credit River

Maybe I’m just getting old, but is it just me, or has this been a really cold winter? Hey, I’m a skier and a snowshoer and I find myself starting to complain about this winter. 14 inches of ice on… Continue Reading →

Younge/ Dundas Square

I’ve been spending a lot of time studying photography, especially street photography, been following Eric Kim and will actually be attending one of his workshops next month in Chicago. He has written quite a few eBooks, which are available on… Continue Reading →

Rob and I went to the Santa Claus Parade this year for the Rangefinder Documentary Shooters Meetup group.

My visit at 500px.com

Today, I had a chance to visit the head office of 500px.com. This is through a Meetup Group and although I thought it would be testing their new products, it was mostly an interview for market research, which I really… Continue Reading →

Kensington Village Pedestrian Sunday

This is an annual event that I just recently heard about. Has to be one of the most interesting street festivals I’ve ever attended. Lots of food, entertainment and interesting people. View Gallery

The long, cold winter of 2014

It’s been a long winter and I felt that I haven’t been shooting much, but looking at my collection… there are a few interesting shots. I thought I’d just put them all together here. View Gallery

My old neighbourhood in Hamilton

Now for a little bit of nostalgia. A few weeks ago I met a fellow photographer, Rob, at a Meetup Street shooting event, who told me about a project he’s involved in – documenting Kenilworth Avenue in Hamilton east end…. Continue Reading →

Marihuana March May 2013

This was the 15th annual Marijuana March from Queen’s Park and is basically a protest march to legalize pot. Good idea, eh? I heard about this in one of those free Toronto papers and thought I just had to go…. Continue Reading →

Street Photography in Old Quebec City

Normally, I have trouble with street photography, because I’m so shy. But I’ve found that really busy tourist areas are good for this, because with everyone walking around with a camera, I can just blend in easier. Anyway, on our… Continue Reading →
