The hard lines and contrasting shapes of this construction venue captured my eye during sunset wanderings in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina.

Monochrome Monday: From Last Summer

While looking through my catalog, I came across these images from late last summer. Shot near my water garden, I knew these plant subjects would make excellent black & white candidates. The first composition also work well with a vintage Kodachrome emulation.

Toronto Architectural Abstracts and Cityscapes, Pt 3

I expect this to be the final post of Toronto architectural abstracts, and following this should be a final street photography post. I’ve enjoyed exploring the pushed HDRish styling used in this series. I hope you have as well.

Victoria St Urban Cityscape Compositions

High above Victoria St in Toronto, I spied this brave fellow painting the metal window framing of a twenty story building.  At this point in time, the painter was painstakingly applying primer.  So he had to go back over the face of this structure again to apply the final coat of red!  I would say these are mashup of architectural abstracts and street photography.
