We’re On A Roll!

One of my most favourite cities in the world is New York and I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to visit often. I was there at the beginning of July for a long weekend and the reason for this latest trip was more then just a weekend getaway but it was also to do a bit more shooting underground in the subway. There was a very special reason for this which I will reveal over the next few weeks so stay tuned.

I did manage to stay above ground as well and spent a day in Brooklyn shooting on a very hot, humid and rainy day.

Walking through the Upper East Side during January’s cyclone bomb can be a lonely endeavour but it’s also quite beautiful.

End of the Line

Here’s another image from my Subway Tableau©️ series.

Sometimes, no matter how hard you look it’s not always easy to see the end of the line.

Snow Day in Central Park

It’s February…is it too late to say Happy New Year. I guess it’s never too late for that. Well it’s been a busy start to the year with work and family and a new puppy. I made myself a promise (not a resolution) that would find more time for shooting and posting and I’m already lagging behind in that promise.

I was invited last year by a photography Club here in Toronto to do a presentation on promoting your photography on social media. I’ll be presenting to them on Tuesday and I’m really looking forward to it. I did presentation on iPhoneography for this club last year and they’re a great group of passionate photographers.

I’ve also spent the last couple of years working on some personal projects and building a body of work. I’m going to connect with some galleries and curators in the hopes of breaking into that market. I’ll let you know how that goes.

I was in NYC the first week of January with my family. For the first time in all these years of travelling to New York I finally caught a snow storm. And what a storm, or a cyclone bomb as they were calling it. The city was still and beautiful. What a wonderful way to experience Manhattan. It was pretty rough walking around outside because of the wind but we certainly weren’t going to stay in the hotel room and unfortunately my husband and boys had no desire to be excess time outside just so that I could shoot to the storm. We came to an excellent comprise. We headed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, they headed inside and I went to spend sometime walking around Central Park. It was tough keeping the camera dry ( I know, poor planning on my part as I didn’t have a cover with me) but it was so beautiful being there. I tried to find places to take cover and wipe of my camera. I ducked under this little bridge and to my surprise found the most beautiful little scene to photograph.

Pick Up Here

Spring in New York. Even on a rainy day Bryant Park shines.
