One of the great pleasures of living beside the beach is the ability to get out there on a moments notice. When I see the sky lighting up like this it’s just a hop skip and a jump to get to a good viewing point. Getting out as often as possible is the hardest part.
While taking a stroll in my ‘hood I spotted this beautiful Datsun parked so perfectly in front of a flower store. It was terrible light out, but I snapped a pic anyways. I decided to grab a separate photo of the light in the sky from the setting sun later in the day. I combined these elements together in Photoshop threw some faux film grain on it and BOOM, we’ve got ourselves a certified banger! I know some folks might get uptight about faking a photo, but I just like to create stuff, even if it’s a scene that never really happened. Enjoy it, or don’t! I’m not the boss of you.
Scrolling through some old photos on my computer and I came across this shot of Kensington Market from a few years back. I probably meant to share it at some point but just forgot about it. Anyways, here it is! Hope you dig it.
With the cool fall weather comes dramatic sunsets and sunrises. Here are a couple shots taken from Chester Hill Lookout in Toronto, Ontario.
Caught the sun going down from the Leaside Bridge in Toronto, Ontario. When I arrived and set up my tripod the sky was grey and as far as nice sunset shots, this picture was looking bleak, but in the last 10 minutes before the sun disappeared behind the horizon the sky opened up into a beautiful array of pinks, purples and oranges. Mother nature put on another great show. Here is the image I captured.
This was me a little over a week ago. Since I live a hop skip and a jump away from Lake Ontario I decided to turn this passing idea into a reality. I purchased a kayak! I've always enjoyed canoeing and kayaking, but I've never lived so close enough to a body of water to justify such a purchase. The boat has already given me some fun photo opportunities. Here are a couple images my kayak has given me access to. Click on the thumbnail to see the full photograph.
Some kayak-photo excursions I'm planning in the near future are to the Scarborough bluffs, Tommy Thompson Park, and Toronto Island. Check back in soon to see those images. :)
