In case they are buggin' the light out of you - just leave them unattended :) The good folks at Long Wong's will take care of the rest...
Perhaps the most widely advertised view of Casa Loma in Totonto is this one - the conservatory (aka "greenhouse"). As to me, I could not care less what the function of this house is - it has a cupola and that's enough to keep me glued to the camera for a good hour :)
Imagine for a moment that you are looking for something. Say, you are searching through the job listings (as I did) and you type your desired job title - let's say it was "Accountant". In all the likelihood, you would expect to see the accountant job listings, right? Not so fast. If you use something like Monster.com, you will get anything and everything except what you are looking for. In my case, I was searching for "Software Engineer" and getting "Bartender", "Laundry Attendant", "Housekeeper III" (imagine that, they have levels of housekeeping!)
Personally, I think that being that much out of context is an art form... One of those I could live without
I'm slowly starting to go through all the images from the day, but this is one of my favorites. A little bit of land, water, sky and I think fire.

Move over puppies and kittens and ponies! People at Long Wong's put children first. On the cute list that is :)

I don't suppose many of you live in the "riot zone" - in a place where riots happen on a regular basis that is. The Chase Bank branch below was in perfectly fine shape when I was banking there on Friday afternoon. The photo below was taken one day later. This is not a third world country. This is Oakland, USA. Welcome!
Today, I live and work in the colorful and eclectic city of San Francisco and specialize in commercial, product and advertising photography for the corporate and private clients in the Northern California and nationwide. My images can be found in the regional and national publications, on the sites of the leading television networks and in the editorial distribution worldwide. As a photographer, I embrace the philosophy that every object, correctly seen, is beautiful and my job is to show that beauty to the world.
Being a curious and persistent person, I am always inspired by the progress, by the new ideas, new tools, new styles. I firmly believe that my clients deserve only the best and nothing less than perfect will do. I always strive to produce that "wow!" image and if I don't have the right tools or the right lights for the particular situation, I will make them myself. I make things happen.
