But she still did the hand block when the MP came out. Never tire of photographing her. Have a love/hate relationship with rain. On this day, we got along well. Wet pavement at night = good photos          Side street in the nation's capital. Light is nice there. City is great as well. Ottawa that is.Hotel life. Always try for room with two doubles. iPhone NEVER powered down. Ever.Something to look at when dining solo. Love the shade, should have asked where they got it.Probably woulda looked great as chrome. But that's not my thing. Used to be, when light tables ruled. Black and white ain't too shabby. ImoNormally love winter. This year ? Not so much. Dreaming of the French River. Sigh...Not a bell pepper. Not a nautilus shell. Not sexy. Just Shanghai bok choy cleaved down the middle. on 4x5Lucky framing guesstimate with the pinhole. Marten River a few years back. A small laser cut pinhole can kill modern glass. Sometimes.I overuse the word serendipity. A lot. But light leaks kind of seem like that. Hard to replicate eff ups.More Vault : 8x10 pinhole near Leaside. Yup, that's a doll arm there. No idea where the rest went. From The Vault- Large format Pinhole in Kensington Market. Didn't get any stares, very unusual. Guess I'm lucky maybe ?Rare is the person who doesn't stop to thumb type.Art with feet. Handy fence ledge=no kneeling on grimy city sidewalkThe new normality in picture taking.Reading a dead tree edition at Nathan PhillipOne thing I LOVE about the city is the whole utility pole as advertising medium thing.

Not too many boxes left.Type 55.Chair woulda been more comfortable. Light however woulda sucked.Industrial strength today. Ticky tacky residential tomorrow.Spaces disappearing fast. Not into the urbex that is pop amongst slingers.Loading dock junk. Since cleaned up. Too bad, had potential.Ok, so someone forgot frames are more secure than rims ?Used to be Toronto Life. Used to be Trailhead. Used to be a couple of things.If you see anything symbolic or deep in this photo, wanna let me know what it is ? thxIt's a bench, some nice light and an empty box. That's all.Hack repair on the 110b looks alright. Can't say much about the photo yanoha ha, the war on cars is over, suure...what's in this photo would be so much better for the city than 4 round rubbers on asphalt.Yep, that old Chinese woman from earlier is still making her way down SpadinaWidey lens on a plastic cam and it's wonderful nasty vignetting.I swear it looks as if some omnipotent presence is pouring some light into the frame. and they know where it's needed, must be a photographerWhen camera backs get popped prematurelyUltra green car. zero emissionsIt's a dog. I know. Still think it's.Semi-fugly.It's a mess of lines.
