  1. Dallas, I haven't a clue what this DMCA business is even about, but I suspect that the United States and all it's collective petty, spiteful, litigious might isn't going to be coming after me for my pictures of homeless people and the like, so while I don't know about anyone else here, I'll just try to soldier on as best I can now that she's gone. Try not to give yourself a nosebleed over this crap. Life's too short and it ain't worth it. Robert
  2. Taken a number of years ago at a recycling depot tank farm in the Portlands at the foot of Toronto close to Lake Ontario. The Portlands is an interesting area that my photobuds and I prowl from time to time looking for eclectic subject matter. On one bright, sunny f16 day I noticed the interesting shadows cast by the spiral staircase on the side of a large storage tank, and liking the composition, took this photo. motorized Nikon FE-2 Nikkor 180 2.8 ED AIS manual focus Ektachrome 100 ISO colour slide f16 @ 1/125th
  3. Thanks Luc. I appreciate your comments. Robert
  4. Taken late last year when my wife and I took a short vacation in New Orleans. Looking down from our nineteenth floor hotel room, I liked the view of an intersection with the shadows of the palm trees and pedestrians which added interesting elements to the composition, and grabbed this shot. motorized Nikon FA Tokina ATX 80~200 2.8 AIS manual focus Fuji Velvia 100 ISO colour slide 5.6 @ 1/1000th
  5. Thanks Dallas. This composition literally jumped out at me when I first saw it. Robert
  6. Taken a few years ago downtown, here in Toronto. A photobud and I were shooting a railway caboose that had been reincarnated as part of a restaurant when I noticed a staircase to a building entrance, and liking the unclutered, colourful composition, grabbed this shot. motorized Nikon F2AS Nikkor 105 2.5 AI manual focus Fuji Sensia II 100 ISO colour slide 5.6 @ 1/1000th
  7. Taken a few years ago here in downtown Toronto. Temporary street barriers were neatly stacked for use at a street parade and I liked the repeating pattern as well as contrast between the fluorescent paint and the bare metal, and grabbed this shot. motorized Nikon F2AS Nikkor 105 2.5 AI manual focus Fuji Sensia II 100 ISO colour slide probably 2.8 @ 1/500th
  8. Taken last October in New Orleans, Louisiana. During our short five-day holiday, I'd often go out by myself in the early evenings to do a bit of street photography. On this particular night I stopped in front of one the local shops that sold everything from souvenirs to alcohol, to shoot a few of the regulars who spent their evenings on the sidewalk. Using a lens that was too slow by at least a couple of stops and slow film, the result was a blurred image, that strangely for me captured the scene perfectly. motorized Nikon FA Vivitar 17-28 f4.0-4.5 AIS manual focus Fuji Velvia 100 ISO colour slide f4.0 @ 1/15th
  9. Taken a few years ago after a light snowfall, while walking across a lightly used parking lot I noticed the wonderful contrast between the tire treads and the thin layer of clean snow, and grabbed this shot. converted to black and white in Photoshop. motorized Nikon FA Nikkor 24 2.8 AIS manual focus Fuji Sensia II 100 ISO colour slide about 5.6 @ 1/60th
  10. Taken a number of years ago here in Toronto. Probably part of a larger panel of Graffitti, I liked the contrast between various the soft pastels and the sharp edged black areas exposed where paint had peeled away, and grabbed this shot. motorized Nikon FA micro-Nikkor 105 f4 AI manual focus Ektachrome 100 ISO colour slide 5.6 @ 1/125th
  11. Taken earlier this summer in the Food Court in the Toronto Eaton Centre Shopping Mall. My wife and I were spending an afternoon with our Son, Daughter-in-Law, and their two children, and when they scattered to the various kiosks to get lunch I spotted a young man seated along the wall. I liked the repeating pattern of seats and tables and the horizontal bands of colour, and I grabbed this shot. It was only after getting back the slide that I noticed my reflection in the mirror. motorized Nikon F3P Makinon 28~80 3.5 AIS manual focus Fuji Velvia 100 ISO colour slide 3.5 @ 1/60th or 1/30th
  12. Taken earlier this summer at The Beach on the Lake Ontario Shore at the eastern end of Toronto. This year the water level in Lake Ontario has reached record heights so that much of the Toronto Islands are flooded and under water. While my wife and I were spending the day with one of our grandchildren, I noticed a pair of Muskoka chairs which normally would be on sandy beach, sitting out in shallow water, and liking the composition with sunbathers in the distance on what used to be the water's edge, I grabbed this shot. Nikon FG Makinon 28~80 3.5 AIS manual focus Fuji Velvia 100 ISO colour slide f16 @ 1/125th
  13. Taken a few years ago, down at the docks on Lake Ontario, here in Toronto. While walking around looking for human subjects, I spotted an interesting graphic on the side of a moored ship, and grabbed this photo. motorized Nikon FA Nikkor 35 f2 AIS manual focus Fuji Sensia 100ISO colour slide 5.6 @ 1/125th
  14. This was taken a number of years ago here in downtown Toronto while walking around on a sunny day. I spotted an interesting fire escape against a light brown painted brick wall. Exposing for the wall put the black metal stairs completely in silhouette and gave me a pleasing geometric composition. motorized Nikon FA Tamron SP 35~105 2.8 AIS manual focus Fuji Sensia II 100 ISO colour slide f16 @ 1/125th
  15. Mike /Anthony, Thanks for the kind words. Robert
