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.
For the past several years, I’ve enjoyed the street photography posted here on WP. For the first time, I deliberately shot some street photos while visiting Toronto on business a few weeks ago. Along with the urban landscapes and architectural abstracts, I had a blast shooting in Toronto!

Well, I had a few more compositions left to make up a third post in this series. Well call this my Mostly Monochrome Monday post.
While working on this series, my wife asked me why I would travel all the way to Columbia for a USC Parents Day Football weekend and not include any pictures of our son Parker. I told her I did, he’s in the middle of the student section cheer photo below!
Thomas Sumter was a a brigadier general in the South Carolina militia during the American War of Independence. Because of his fierce fighting, the British named him the Carolina Gamecock. The British had earlier burnt down his house – that probably had something to do with the name.
Last Sunday, my wife and I visited our freshman son Parker at the University of South Carolina (USC) Gamecocks home football game against the Missouri Tigers. What started as a blistering hot first half quickly became a heavy steady rain from half-time through the middle of the 4th quarter.
I brought my Nikon in hopes of capturing a few game and people shots. The rain turned out to be a significant photograph bonanza! Here’s the first of a two part post featuring Gamecock game-day photos.
