I call this on the edge, but frankly it still amazes me to live in a large city and be so close to pristine nature. Sure the city has to some extent integrated nature into the city itself, but concrete paths are not natural. The beautiful nature reserves just minutes away are much better.

What’s important to me in photography is taking photographs I like, passing along ideas, tips etc. I am constantly trying new things in the field and in post-processing. I have no expectation that everything will work, or that they will have an appreciative audience. Success is measured in many ways and that is something I bear in mind in all my endeavours.

I pass this mural often but only infrequently is it not obscured by cars. I like it because it’s hard to tell what is part of the mural or not. Composing a photograph that takes advantage of the mural but has context makes it your own take on what you see.

Windows have always held a fascination for me in photography. It’s often surprising the results you can get focusing on windows. The keystoning and and other things we need to correct to get a straight picture may be a bit of a hassle but the results can be rewarding.


Street (Two Photographs)

I took this shot and realized that for some reason my white balance was completely off, but also realizing it would not have a significant effect on the black and white version if I used a blue filter in processing. With contrast, and exposure settings I was able to make this the drastic and somewhat odd photo you see in black and white.

On the same walk as the photos I took for yesterday’s post, I came across this wall art. While it’s beautiful in colour, my eye saw that black and white was better at capturing the quiet of the neighbourhood and the details in the building and street.


A Colour Photograph

If it were not for the garbage on the ground it would be hard to tell if this was a black and white or colour photograph. What caught my eye was how the light hit the concrete and gave it some tonality.
