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.

Street Photography – Toronto, CA

Canada Legal Day One at Saint James

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!

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!

Gamecock Game-day, pt 2 – USC Marching Band Sections

As the rain poured in the 3rd quarter, the USC Marching Band took refuge under the stadium.  They had neatly laid down their instruments by section – what a find!

During the first half, you would never had known it was going to rain.  Weather.com showed only a 15% chance of rain!  Here are a few pre-game snaps of the Marching Band in the sweltering heat.
