Love how this shot turned out: three white, almost translucent kites against a blue sky. Shot down by the lake, near the Leuty Lifeguard station.
A small tree covered in icicles down by the shore of Lake Ontario. This is a montage of several photos that were later merged in PhotoShop.
Trying out my new Olympus PEN E-PL5 camera body with the f1.8 45mm portrait lens I picked up from Downtown Camera during Boxing Week. Here’s a shot I took while passing through Nathan Phillips Square earlier today:
My last day in Tokyo. Went to the Imperial Gardens in the heart of downtown. The relatively warm weather for the season meant that the colours were still on the trees, making for some nice pics:
Today I joined my work colleagues for a trip to the iconic Mt Fuji. These pics were all taken using my 200mm lens and assembled from several shots spliced together in PhotoShop. The original images are big.
A pic showing a broad perspective of the vantage point I shot all of the subsequent pictures from:
This one zooms in just a bit, focusing on the landscape:
And this one looks at the top of Mt Fuji. You can see the zigzagging trails leading to top:
Definitely a “bucket-list item” experience for me!
Well worth the trip to see the world’s largest Fish Market. I ended up taking a lot of pictures of the fish that were on offer here, but when processing the pics I found that many of the shots involving the fish sellers and the delivery people were the ones that caught my attention.
Have been taking a lot of photos of the Moon this year it seems. Though there isn’t a lot of colour here, the photo does show that there is some colour to be seen. This photo taken with the trusty 500mm lens.
Traveled downtown with Annie and together we watched a bunch of busker acts, including a magician, puppeteer and a fire juggler.
Headed down to Hamilton to see the Hamilton Airshow hosted by the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. Last time I visited was back in 2010, and they’ve made a number of changes to the event. Tickets were now $99, but for that you and 1,200 others were taken to a venue closer to the runways, a couple of drink tickets for beer/wine, and free food. There were lots of seats available, the view of the planes was unobstructed and the weather cooperated for the day.
Here are some pics:
Apparently the museum’s DC-3 Dakota experienced some engine problems while in the air and it made a quick landing, with the local firefighting crew streaming in the airfield as a precaution.
