Street Photography

Halloween? (Three Photographs)

The stores have been preparing for Halloween since August, so I guess it‘s never too early for a few spooky shots. A gnome in a garden and an outdoor veranda for a bar, life made spooky. Though I will freely admit these scenes looked less spooky before I processed them.


Bikes (Three Photographs)

I looked at these photographs, all taken on different days, and saw a theme. The bright colours bring the photos together, and with a common element make a nice collection. Difficult weather and other considerations are keeping me in the city and out of the forest but thankfully not away from my camera!


Details (Three Photographs)

Intimate urban landscape is not quite street photography or architecture, it‘s those quirky little things you see in the corners and down the alleys of the city. For me its a matter of seeing things in a way that is unique. I enjoy showing these to people who pass the same spot and never noticed.


A Restaurant (Two Photographs)

I was trying to use Luminar 2018 for B&W as well as HDR Pro in Photoshop at 32 bit. The results are not bad for black and white photos and it may be a process I will use again.  Skylum is putting all of its efforts into Luminar. Noiseless, Tonality and Intensity CK, programs I use on a daily basis, are now legacy programs not to be updated. Noise reduction in Luminar appears no different than Lightoom and there is no replacement for the filters I use in Intensity CK . So I am trying out all of Luminar’s tricks before even thinking about looking for an alternative.


Street Art (Two Photographs)

These two photographs could only be done in colour. The striking thing about them is the way in which the art stands out in spite of all the injurious things around it. I can only applaud the growth in quality street art, and the artists who work around all kinds of obstacles, while still managing great work. Most of the artwork I see does not last long before it is replaced by another piece of art.


Little Italy (Three Photographs)

Just when I think I had taken every possible photo in Little Italy, I find more to shoot. I try to vary the walks but some places are simply un-photogenic while others never cease having interesting things to shoot.


More of Montreal (Three Photographs)

There are parts of Montreal where everything is covered in street art or graffiti. I haven’t the slightest idea what is behind the doors, nor for that matter do I understand the writing in the graffiti. I found the colour overwhelming, so I did these in black and white, which I think gives a better idea of the details.
