Waiting for Coffee?

Waiting for Coffee?

Another potential coffee break! If they are waiting for service, they had better go in and find it. I love the old world look – it transports me to Europe except for the clothing. The hat does not quite fit the plaid shirt which helps make it Canadian. The...
Coffee Break Boredom

Coffee Break Boredom

I could not figure out what he was looking at. He walked out of his work and then stopped to investigate. He would stand and take a sip of his coffee and then go back to this spot at the window. It was a chilly fall day but nice and warm basking in the sunshine. It is...
Urban coffee break

Urban coffee break

I love the contrast of the human element and the stark industrial environment in this image. This is the frame that captured the gesture moment – the cup in the hand. I had to wait for about 5 minutes for the gesture moment to happen. People often think that a...
On your tippy toes

On your tippy toes

My initial interest that got me into photography was black and white images back in the good old film days. I used to process the film and spend hours in the darkroom and never lost the joy of seeing an image emerge in the tray of developer. Then I got attracted to...
Christmas 2017

Christmas 2017

I did not get out in 2016 for Christmas images so was determined to get out for this past Christmas. It was the first time I had used a tripod for a long time but like riding a bicycle it got easy to use quickly so that I could take pictures slowly. It was amazing to...
A day in the park

A day in the park

I have not done any child photography since my favorite daughter was a kid. It is challenging to do as kids are the extreme opposite of stationary – especially in a playground! Eddie is 4 years old and clearly enjoys exploring the world and the simple pleasures...
It’s Magic!

It’s Magic!

This photo was taken of my newly married daughter and her husband a couple of years ago. You can tell it was taken with a Leica rangefinder by its unique glow and the capture of the electricity of young love. I think soul mates call it magic – at least in the...
Thunderbird Memories

Thunderbird Memories

I have always wanted a Thunderbird since the 60s. They eventually dropped the ball in later years – one wonders how they could lose the recipe and turn it into a generic car. Then around 2000 they tried to recapture the spirit of the Thunderbird but the ride and...
The Wall

The Wall

This moment was captured on the way to a meeting. After I parked, I noticed and loved the light on the wall and all of the elements; the lamp with the hanging baskets, the window awnings, the diagonal lines, the shadows. All that  was necessary was to get my camera...
Not part of the crowd

Not part of the crowd

I have been wanting to take a photo of this tree for years but the light was never correct. On the way to the office, I spotted it displaying its most colourful outfit with a great sky. It had been dark and rainy for a few days but the perfect day finally arrived...
