Two More

Whilst walking through Beavermead Park with Patrick last week, I recalled my first time out with the digital SLR camera. I went through some old photos of that trip and saw a couple that caught my interest that I didn’t really notice the first time around. Also, last weekend was our camera clubs first ever…

Photo of the Week: Week 12

Although a bit cooler than last week, this weekend was still great to get outside. This morning Patrick and I were walking around the backyard when he saw some dandelions. I was able to snap a couple shots before he picked them and ran back to the house. He handed a couple to mommy and…

Use An Old CD

Tonight at our camera club meeting we did something quite unusual. We put droplets of coloured water on the reflective side of a compact disc, turned the lights off and started snapping away. The shutter speed was set to between 5 and 10 seconds. Using a small flash light, we moved it around the CD…

I thought he would have played at the playground more than he actually did, but he preferred to sit on the park…

Get Out Of The Way

It seems that every time I spot a decent opportunity for a landscape shot, there’s always hydro lines in the way. My drive into work takes me over several rolling hills each with a really great view. On several occasions, there’s been a fantastic sunset that I would’ve loved to pull over and snap a couple…

Patterns of Toronto

During my recent week spent in Toronto, I was amazed at the number of condos that have sprung up along the waterfront. My neck was sore at the end of the day from all the tall buildings. I was mesmerized by the monotony of these structures, and couldn’t help to try and capture the repetitive patterns…
