So Today I was out down by the falls, and as I was leaving I took a seat to rest say all the people asking people to take there picture.. or families not able to get a whole picture... so I decided to be a Creeper and take a few pictures of people taking pictures

So this was basically all the photos from the Fireworks put into a really short timelapse. (the fireworks only lasted 5 minutes) 

The wind and atmosphere were not on my side... Still learning experience.

Yesterday while everyone was shooting Bethany I just saw the red and wanted to play with it. I did something quickly in Snapseed from a JPG transfer on the way home last night. This however is from the RAW and what I wanted from it. 

Thanks +Bethany Clifford  for being such a good sport yesterday

Also thanks Lena for being a second set of eyes.

So on Wednesday I went to the McMicheal Gallery with Chelsea yesterday, got to see some wonderful Photography, and Native Art. Most importantly a bunch of the work of the Group of Seven. I was more moved by it than I thought. I'm normally not one for art. But everything there was really nifty, the Inuit Art was really neat.. Seeing Skidoo carvings were interesting. The Haida Masks were also really impressive. 

On the way in to meet Chelsea in Brampton I saw two Herons and caught this. :)

So it turns out on of my photos is being used be many people as everything from profile pics to actual posts. Some watermarks on them. 

Of course I can't report it because +Google+ requires a form to fill out... but does not provide one that actually lets you report Photos unless it is Drive or Doc because they want a Drive or Docs URL. 

Though of course in some cases I just give up anyway because some of these people that steal photos post so much that when something comes up on a Image search it may be in a Album which Google has hidden and they post so often that it could take hours to find the post to report. 

I only do a Image search once an a while because I'm not a major photographer. So it is really frustrating that Google has decided to make this process needlessly difficult.

Ya... the profile ones I don't mind... it's the ones passing it off... 

the watermark one showed up in an image search... instead of taking me to the post it puts me at the top of the G+ page. They post nearly 50 times a day... I have no date to go by. 


I might take the time if when you do the report and it asks you to fill out a form, it then send you to a selection of forms, you answer the questions, and it takes you, every time to Docs and Drive which means a G+ link is no good and won't let you submit.

So I decided I was going to do some food photography today. It's not original, (I copied a Special K advert) more just wanted to get my mind working again as it's been a while.

Should have used a solid colour cloth though, the Red and White checks pulled the eye to much and I'm not happy with the solution. 

Over all though I accomplished what I set out to do.. flex a little photo muscle. 

I also reminded my self I need to walk away from a photo after shooting.. my eyes were still burnt. Grr.. Oh well it was just a bit of fun.

So went out last night to shoot Victoria Day (fake Victoria Day) fireworks at the falls

I'm not happy as the wind, though light was right at me, and the low ceiling and humidity meant I was in a cloud of gun smoke by the end.

But... I think over the next day or so, I'm going to try something different with them. We will see.

Though I have this shot which is passable.

Thankfully I live in Niagara a falls I have two chances a week every week to shoot fireworks

I don't think you should be too displeased with this shot, I think it captures the light beautifully as well as the mood and spirit of the night.

I choose Thursday to go into Toronto as I was looking at the weather there was a high likely out of nice clouds and decent colours. Didn't know if Portlands or Toronto Islands would be best, figured what the heck Toronto Islands, should be loads to photograph.

Ended up going over about 2-3 hours later than I thought. I'm ok with that. It was a good day. Actually it was a really good day. Found a new Indian place near St Lawerence Market and had pretty decent Palak Paneer. At the end of the day good waffles. I was Social, and generally as good as I've been in months (maybe a year). Of course Ms Lena needed to tease animals :) but it lead to this shot. 

Now to get my new light modifiers built, get out for some cherry blossoms, and some Niagara Scenery, and try to get a few portraits of people going.

Story
Tagline
It's about the emotion of the moment.
Introduction
I am a Niagara Falls, Ontario based hobbyist photographer. Having lived all across Ontario growing up, I have seen an amazingly wide cross section of city and landscapes as well as a whole cast of characters from all walks of life. This has lead me to focus on capturing moments and places that can hold meaning or tell a story, both Urban and Rural. 

I work in the Financial Industry with a big five bank for my day job, and am passionate about technology, history, and culture. Of late I have been enjoying organizing and participating in photowalks through my connections on Google+. 

When I'm not photographing I'm usually reading about history, Wikipedia, or researching one thing or another. I also tend to Hike or Walk a fair bit. I spent my formative years in the Niagara Region and recently moved back after nearly a decade away. 

Bragging rights
Moved 33 times, trying to slow that down. Been bitten by a Python, a few dogs, twice by a cat, at least one fish, and a frog.. I'm tasty.
