This is apparently a thing.

So... my first Google+ Photo post.

I blame +Gary Munroe for making me see all my old horrible photos. I used to post such horrid images that I thought were the bees knees. (though one could argue I still do)

But yep here it is my first photo from July 7th 2011

+Rob Elliott Thanks. I thought everyone must be using some trick! I ended up doing the scrolling on my phone. (As, on desktop, it was requiring a click, every ten posts or so.) Took me about half an hour or maybe more.

This Saturday was the 5th Google+ Photowalk in Toronto, we ended up on Toronto Islands at sunset to take photos. As it happens it is also the 40th Anniversary of the CN Tower. Though unintentional nearly every building in this photo was built after the tower. Which seems fitting.. a skyline under 40.

As always feel free to check out this photo and more on Instagram @robelliottca

Shot of Beth during the photo was today.

Was good seeing everyone. I'll toss into the event when I get home as Google seems to not like that feature anymore

Allana did such a great job on Cate's make-up I figured I had to post at least one of the other photos from that day. I really enjoyed working with her again. Allana was also the MAU for the Paper Dress shoot in November.

I had a very specific idea for my Crimson shot. Cate brought a couple of extra wigs so we played a little. This is the only one I really liked. I've learned one of my limitations photographically is I'm not a great spontaneous shooter. I'm very much a concept person.. all my best portraits came from a specific concept in my head. The ones I dislike are when I deviate from my idea.

One of the reason I am so awed by talented creatives that have the ability to make stuff on the fly.

I finally get to show this.

This is one the rejected shots for Instrument in the Scavenger hunt. I played around with it a few weeks after I shot it and ended up with this.

This is an old photo but one that really pushes how trapped I feel at time. The Anxiety and Panic that come with Agoraphobia is exhausting. Since May 2011 I have been struggling with a serious bout that has it's ups and downs but has progressively gotten worse peaking in January of 2014.

Since than I have slowly been recovering, trying to regain my life and over come it all. It has been very frustrating.

Recently I started using a new method for dealing with it. (or more accurately taking methods I know and combining them in a new way.) It has had a serious amount of success. One of the Biggest Hurdles to over come is location based triggers. Basically if I get near certain places or people my agoraphobia takes over. Once a Location becomes a trigger it hasn't been something I have been able to over come.

Today I was able to enter a trigger location for the first time and though it was short I left of my own accord with no significant issues. Inside the trigger was active but I was managing it. I may actually be able to beat a trigger. Without experience any of this it is hard to understand. Today I was in tears afterwards. The realization that I may actually be able to get my life back was overwhelmingly happy.

There is still a lot of work to be done and there may be a limit to what this can do and I may not succeed. The fact that Success is even a possibility though is a joy. The idea to be able to live my life on my terms again is something that truly was unexpected. Nothing that happened today was supposed to happen.

I do write about my issues from time to time.. today I do so with the hope that others keep trying. Keep pushing. I almost had given up hope of recovery. Today was a huge boost. Now for the hard stuff. :)

Oh. I want to be normal. That's what I strive to be. And then I can build on that. :)

there is a comment here being badly mistranslated.

instead of translating from Arabic to English as "love you" it is showing as "die you"

thanks.. the G+ translator is just seeing the words wrong likely because of the way the +Tag interacts.

an Arabic speaking friend explained it as such

as one word by one it means that
موت means death
عليك well in a way means you
But as a whole اموت means me die
اموت عليك means a love you so much, metaphorical


Google Translate catches that.. but the G+ translator misses it.

This is my Golden Hour photo from the Scavenger Hunt. I was really pleased with how it turned out... I had a surprisingly hard time getting this catagory done.

Story
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.
