seeing double

Technically it's not seeing double since it's not like I literally have two left feet. April Fool's Day spoiled us with warm and sunny weather, so I took the opportunity to go sit out on my deck to soak in some vitamin D.  I flipped the original photo vertically so it looks like someone else …

edge

If I recall correctly, this is a restaurant in Old Montreal.  I love the strong edges in this photo, in particular the contrast of the warmth emitted by the wood frames of the door and window against the relative coldness of the gray stone surrounding them. —————- This post is part of Blogging U’s Photo …

glass

I love colourful storefront and restaurant window displays.  They immediately invite me in and make me curious about what's on the other side. Taken in Old Montreal, March 2009. —————- This post is part of Blogging U’s Photo 101 Class, where I’ll be posting a photo each weekday with an interpretation of the given theme.

treasure

I grew up afraid of dogs.  When I was in elementary school, I told my friends that I was allergic to dogs because one of them had a feisty little Yorkie whose bark was worse than his bite but nonetheless scared the shit out of me.  I thought if I told her I was allergic …

This shot of San Francisco from Mission Dolores Park, taken in June 2014, is a good example of my "top heavy" approach; however, I did manage …

moment & motion

Downtown Ottawa, circa 2009, taken from our hotel room.  Hard to believe that this image was taken 7 years ago when I first got my camera (has it really been that long?!).  I knew nothing about taking photos of moving cars, in low light no less, but I think my experimentation turned out well for …

architecture

Architecture can be fascinating to photograph but I'm not particularly adept at architectural photography.  I ran a food blog for a few years so my repertoire was mostly - you guessed it - food. Participating in Photo 101 so far has ignited a desire to try photographing subjects of the non-edible kind.  When looking for …

mystery

What's behind the locked door? Some things are not meant to be seen. —————- This post is part of Blogging U’s Photo 101 Class, where I’ll be posting a photo each weekday with an interpretation of the given theme.
