Snow Storm!!!

I spent the weekend at the Tim's Hortons' Foundation Camp ( They invited the kids and parents who are involved with Samba Kidz ( to spend a free weekend at their St. George, Ontario location, about an hour and a half west of Toronto. Everyone had an amazing time, even though the weather was hovering around zero and the camp site was blanketed with the first snow storm of the season. I tagged along to document the weekend and to have unlimited access to Tim Hortons' Coffee. While everyone was petting bunnies inside the barn, I braved the elements and went out to shoot in the snow. Here are a few of the images.

More images to follow, maybe...

It's Gili's Turn!

This is Gili. She is the best, but she doesn't like to cooperate with my attempts to photograph her too often, so when she does, it's a special occasion of sorts. We are getting married in about two months. She inspires me to be better at different things, such as making salad dressing, cleaning the laundry room, and breathing through my nose. If that isn't love, then I don't know what is.

Kensington Market In Three Colours

I took these images a while ago, but thought it might be interesting to present them in this fashion.

Birds On A wire

I was turning onto the street leading to my house when I saw these pigeons having a siesta on the electricity lines, so I ran home and grabbed my camera. The birds were gracious enough to hold their pose and wait for me.
On an unrelated note, after taking these shots, I ran into our ninety-two-year-old Italian neighbour, who asked me to help him change a light-bulb in his garage.  In return, he gave me a huge head of lettuce from his garden, which he takes care of with tremendous care. It tasted great in my salad. Thank you.

Autumn - Part 2

This is another experiment with super-imposed images. I'm not sure I like it that much, but it took up a lot of my time, so I'm posting it anyways.

Autumn - Part 1

This composite image was inspired by an amazing photoshop training video by Jullieanne Kost. She has some amazing work on her website, which you can find here:

Back Alley Graffiti

There is a back Alley just South of Queen St. that starts at Peter St. (If I remember correctly) and stretches all the way to west of Bathurst St. You can see the most amazing graffiti art if you walk along that alley. I went down there a while ago to photograph some of the art. I encourage you to check it out for yourself.

Four Coloured Leaf

Well, this is not an original idea. I found a video on youtube which explains how to do it in photoshop. It will look really pretty on your living room wall, though.

I posted these two images already, but I've been playing around in photoshop and combined them with different backgrounds, which adds a different sort of feel, I think. I hope to post more of these experiments in the future.

Halloween Lights

I walked around the neighbourhood on Saturday evening and shot some front porches' Halloween lights, using a 4 second exposure. These are some of the results I got.
