Peeling Paint

There is a saying in the photographic world, when asked what is the best camera... the answer is, the one you have with you. Well the one I had with me was my "new" cel phone.

The Mounties

Here is another from the RCMP Musical Ride. What do you get when you have a couple of Mounties on horses, Adobe Photoshop, a texture of old photos and a photographer with a creative imagination? The answer is an image of the by-gone era of the wild west or in this case the "Wild West Island".

RCMP Musical Ride

The RCMP performed their infamous musical ride in Pierrefonds this past weekend. It was viewed by close to 30,000 of the general public in addition to earlier special performances for the schools. Seeing these officers perform gives one a true sense of Canadian pride.

Red & Yellow Peppers

The colours of the market place is ever so inspirational. One may even say the colours are "delicious".

Urabn Art

Art is in the eyes of the beholder as they say... As I was walking around Kensigton Market area of Toronto I came across this work of art. The creator of this agreed with me when I asked if it was a work in progress. What do you think… art or a pile of junk?

The Passing Landscape

We are still traveling along the 401. Sitting in the bus staring out the window, watching the landscape pass before my eyes.

Along the 401

Saturday night I watched the movie "Julie & Julia". For those whom are not familiar with this movie, it is about the famous cookbook author Julia Child. In this movie a fan (Julie) starts a blog chronicling her cooking experiences based on her "inspiration or muse",  Julia Child. At one point Julie questions if anyone is actually out there reading her blog or are her words and thoughts just floating about in cyber space. That made me think about my blog as well as other friends whom blog on a regular basis. So my question to you (if there are any you's) are you out there?

That being said, last weekend I traveled to Toronto by bus ( The ticket was only $19 each way. Great prices if you book 3 weeks in advance. So for under $45 I traveled return to Toronto. Great if you don not need a car there. Naturally I had to take some photos along the way. So here is the first…

The Gully

Due to a bad cold I was photographically out of commission for few days, thus the lack of blog entries. This image is from Parc Île Bizard. It was processed in Photoshop CS4 with technique called HDR or High Dynamic Range. It is the compilation of 3 images each exposed slightly different. One right on and the other two + and - 1 stop. Therefore you get the full range of tones. Enjoy!
