He comes in chocolate

Some of my family are in the US. Many visit often. This came through the door fairly recently!

late last night

It wasn’t really that late but I thought that sounded good. Here’s me walking away from where I live. I am really close to an OBD (outlying business district) so can see a little action in about ten minutes walk.

The moon is rising. Can you see it? Just a sliver.

Not terribly eventful… this sequence, but familiar to me. I’ve been living here since 1999. And spent some time here before that too.

Click on any image to make it larger and scroll as series (the first is actually last, but I don’t know how to reverse it). 🙂

tor_cybercafe

Flashback to when cybercafe’s existed in Toronto… now everyone can go to the library or a coffee shop if they don’t have internet at home… the date on this file says “modified 2004” but it might be earlier. The faces have been blanked out, which would have been the mod date… a bit of web history..

After being away from church for a while with a debilitating cold, it’s nice to be back. Taken today just after the few who had gathered had left.

Christmas is for kids

Taken today at one of the more economically disadvantaged parishes in Toronto (area-wise). Seems these amazing people are doing the most for kids this Xmas.

And isn’t that usually the way?

Those with a lot grasp on to it and are often cheap and miserly. Those with a little know what it means to be in want, so tend to share whatever they have to help others avoid that unpleasant feeling.

f-stop – new photography blog in the works…

I plan to launch a new blog called f-stop. Mostly comprised of photos of people, preferably with a touch of style – via Flickr

I’ve been banging away at my computer, getting Win 7 reinstalled after experiencing some wifi dropouts with Win 10. Such is life. After a few-nail biting moments, I managed to get everything running right again.

So I’m celebrating (before bed!) by posting a pic I took the other day, touched up with Prisma.

As the blurb says, I’ve been thinking about launching a new photography blog, entirely about people. I’d initially thought I’d do people avec un peu de style but who knows.

I doubt I will do street (i.e. homeless) people. I find that exploitative.

My new blog will probably be called f-stop. Unless I think of something better. 🙂

And again with TEXT from Pixlr (android app) on Windows

Image via Tumblr

So I uploaded the previous pic (see below) into the Android version of Pixlr (on Windows via AndY), which has a really nice assortment of free, downloadable fonts. This saves time and hassle, not having to install extra fonts for other Windows-based image editors.

Slight color degradation from the original, caused by uploading and working on an already crunched jpg. But I’m just goofing around, anyhow. 🙂
