Today was very busy with house issues which explains the late post.

26. Hardware

20050226.jpg

Another shot from the house. This is a close up of the same doorknob as I featured yesterday. The lighting is a little different though, bringing out more colour to the wood.

25. Doorknob

20050225.jpg

Another macro shot from around the house. I liked the composition, but the colours turned out pretty dull.

24. Stained Glass

20050224.jpg

Though most of the windows in my house have been upgraded, I still have two original stained glass windows up in the living room. This shot is not one of them. It's of one of the replaced windows that was still kicking around.

23. Skyscraper

20050223.jpg

A Skyscraper in Toronto. This would have been a much better shot with the warm light of sunset. C'est la vie.

22. Carousel

20050222.jpg

I was all set to take a few shots around the house tonight after a long day of work, then shopping, then more work, but wouldn't you know it, my media cards are still packed away someplace, so new images will have to wait until tomorrow.

In the meantime, this is a shot of the carousel at the St. David's Carnival last year. This is what gave me the inspiration to shoot the swings at the Ex.

19. Cool Bird

20050219.jpg

A pattern shot from the CNE last year. I enjoy shooting these pattern shots. I did a bunch of them when I was at The Ex last year, and have done many more previous to that.

I spent most of the evening packing last night. Tonight will be the same thing, though I have to stop on the way home to pick up some beer for those people who will be helping me move tomorrow! Still have some finish coat patching to do, but that will have to wait until I am in. Fortunately, I don't have a lot of furniture yet so I can move things from room to room as I do the work.

18. Dreamspace

20050218.jpg

Shot while in London last fall, Dreamspace was an attack on the senses. Sight and sound (plus a great deal of warmth due to the vinyl structure in the midday sun) made it a very calming and relaxing visit. I various shots from the exhibit.

The house is coming along. I did a lot of cleaning (and making a mess) last night. Patching and sanding, sweeping. Getting ready for the sunday move.

17. Ornamental Iron

20050217.jpg

Again, taken in Toronto, the shot itself was uninteresting in colour. I've created the bluish Duotone and played with levels a little bit to add some depth. Still not sure if I like it.

As for the house, I have over 100 new holes in my walls courtesy of the insulators yesterday.

16. Listen

20050216.jpg

This was shot at my girlfriend's apartment last year. I may post it's mate in the future.

I've been busy with the house. Had contractors in today insulating the walls (sorry for the late post). A lot of patching to do still, and painting this Saturday. Sunday is the big move!

14. Anonymous Flower

20050214.jpg

I don't know what this flower is called. I found it in the greenhouse at Allan Gardens in Toronto.

I am out of town today. I wanted to have a least one day of my vacation free of work!

The house is coming along slowly, pulled some wire yesterday to my office, sanding today. Hopefully I can get out soon for some new shots.

Rose in garden. Not much else to say. When I get further along with my house, I will start posting recent images. Until then, cleaning, fixing cracks and painting will be getting in the way.

07. Abandoned

Another shot taken at the Atlas Steel Plant in Welland. This tricycle was out of place against the backdrop of a steel mill. A child's toy lost and forgotten amidst the grass.

05. Leaf in Snow

20050205.jpg

Another shot taken at the same place as yesterday's.
The snow was hard to capture, but the texture shows in this image. I like then negative space created by the indentation of the leaf.

03. White Bird

20050203.jpg

This is another shot taken at the Niagara Falls Aviary on the weekend. I played around with modifying the color space (now greyscale). Not sure if I like it as it is, it might be a little too warm.

Late night silhouette. This was shot last summer outside my parents house. I will be using some existing photos for the first little while as I get settled into my new home. My goal for this site is to encourage me to get out and shoot daily.
