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.


A New Forest (Three Photographs)

Having planned a city walk with street photography gear, my wife and I stumbled on a park. Unnamed which was unusual. Squeezed by a school at one end, backyards at the side, and an urban highway that encircled the rest. Still given the density of the trees it was quiet. A real forest, the kind children used to love to play in and now regularly used by dog walkers. The story of the park that day was the magnificent trees. So operating on less is more, here are three trees from the nameless forest.


Stairs and Doors (Three Photographs)

Montreal has a thing for wonky stairs and doors, making for a lot of great photography opportunities. In the first shot you are looking through a spiral staircase, in the second you see a traditional set of stairs leading to the upper story apartments. In the final colour shot you can see two homes were merged and this lead to an interesting adjustment to the door.


River View (Two Photographs)

I took this at Parc de la Plaisance in Quebec. Nice park, great place for photography, although their boardwalks were damaged in the winter storms. The Black and White in my view is the keeper and the colour is just to show the base that I worked with. It has a hint of drama and might make some great wall art.


Impressionism (Two Photographs)

These two photographs were of a scene that reminded me of some of the impressionist art I have seen by Monet. Many rules were broken by the Impressionists in moving from the more realistic styles that preceded them. That is the case here too, the subject being the canvas rather than something defined. I think photos like these make for some nice wall art.


Patterns (Two Photographs)

Building on what I said in Monday’s post about impressionism, these two photographs move into the realm of patterns and shades. Fall almost always provides the Impressionistspalate of color and the sense of frantic chaos that is sometimes seen in nature.


Profile (Two Photographs)

These two photographs were processed slightly differently with different approaches to contrast. The second has a bit more contrast using a push processing preset. Thepoint here is in walking about a city, buildings sometimes provide an opportunity for a unique perspective, part of the fun is finding that perspective.
