Canada Geese

I wasn’t expecting to find this.

It is so subtle you can miss it, as many passerby’s did.

I wasn’t that impressed, at first. Later, when I looked at the shots, I fell in love.

I had to take the top geese from across the street.

I crossed the street to capture the lower geese. Being so close was not the best perspective.

Yet, when I got home and saw the odd angles I deployed, I was pleased with the gaggle’s cacophony.

Raphael?

I was looking for a specific face in an network of alleys off Dundas West.

I searched for over 2 hours, about 8 miles. I’ve still about 1o miles of alley to cover. I’ve got to find the face!

In the meantime, here’s an angel.

The snow and mud semi-ruined my new white Rebox sneakers. Uch.

All in all, a lovely find.

View to a Cityscape

I adore this art piece.

The above shot is taken using the Pano setting on my Iphone. However, instead of panning side to side, I turn the camera on its side and pan up from the bottom. Hence, the curve, which I like!

The reflected skyline view in the sunglasses seems reasonably correct. However, one lens is from the lake view, and the other from the land view.

It faces a parking lot. The car reflections come from quite high up, so sometimes are not as crisp, as usual.

There are reflections in the windows on the other side of the parking lot. These windows are about the 6th story.

 

Violeta’s Guardian

In the narrowest of alleys is a testament of love. This shot is captured using the IPhone Pano setting sideways.

Clandestinos had a baby. The baby has a Guardian, a very scary and handsome one at that.

Nonetheless, the alley is almost impossible to shoot in, with my IPhone. So, I show it in dribs and drabs, beginning with the title above.

First up is this stunning violet coloured flower. Then some sweet flower buds.

The violet below is up so high I was only able to shoot this one pic.

This is the most I could capture in 1 shot, even using the Pano setting.

At the top end of the alley is the Guardian with a golden orange flower beneath.

No matter where I stood, this is the tallest I could capture. Yet, there is more on top of the purple mountains. Then I thought, why not use Pano sideways?

That is what resulted in the opening pic. It was difficult, as I had to use an upward arcing movement, which is a foreign sensation of movement.

Many times I began, then my wrist/fingers reacted oddly. This resulted in a split exposure.  (above and below)

Muisca Art

I have posted Muisca’s art before. Here are 2 pieces, in 1 post.

It’s always colourful, imaginative and sweet.

This first one is from Feel Good Lane.

Don’t get dizzy! I rotated this one, for fun.

This next garage door is from a bit earlier in the year.
