Reflections are an interesting area of photography, and I am fond of window reflections. But I need to remind myself that windows tend to be dirty and it would be hard to remove the dirt without killing the reflected subject, so we will just call it grunge. I sometimes have to carefully clone myself out of the photo. The processing should emphasize the detail in the window and recognize that in many cases we have two photographs (one inside the other) and they need to be handled differently.

I am a fan of reflections and this one reminded me of a jig-saw puzzle. I like the black and white conversion, the colour vision seems to remove some detail and focus for the eye despite the contrast.


Urban Shadow (Two photographs)

Shadows can be dark black and prominent or grey and muted, either way they make a great addition to street photography and urban landscape photography. Taken in Montreal around the Main.

I am sure my collection of photographs of benches will never be a best seller, but I enjoy taking them and processing them. In this case I took a few liberties in the black and white treatment in choice of colour filters and contrast.

The Fountain At Parc St. Louis (Two Photographs)

A new discovery for me was a very Parisian style park in Montreal a few blocks from The Main. The park celebrates several artists, has a cafe in a small building to the west, and this wonderful fountain to the east facing St. Denis. Quite a magical place. The neighbourhoods to the north and west are great places for photography and good food.


A Daunting Defence (Two Photographs)

Window bars can be artistic or daunting, the jail-like look of some buildings is overkill.  The mood of this photo is much enhanced, in my view, in black and white. I did play with the colour a bit in the second photo to make it more interesting.


Black and White City (Two Photographs)

Black and white photography has as many styles and options as colour photography. Here I have done a photograph with a bit of dutch tilt (not something I am prone to using but it works here). The second photograph is a reminder of those old photographs of the forties with a lot of contrast. I must say the totem pole hidden behind tree and more visible by its shadow struck me as unusual. The photo was edited to remove signage.
