Toronto Street Scene

The weather sure was nice in Toronto when I was there – cool and clear and good to catch the colors of Kensington Market.

Hollywood Street Scene

This is right around dusk in Hollywood, California. You can see the Hollywood Walk of Fame stars in the sidewalk, the beautifully lit El Capitan Theatre and the infamous Roosevelt Hotel in the background. I like this shot of Hollywood.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Dusk in the French Quarter

I took this shot as dusk was settling in and the lights were coming on in the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is a magical time of day, and I loved the light coming out of this shop and the ironwork on the building. I used to live a few blocks away from where I took this, and I loved walking through the Quarter every day.

Broadway Bike

This is a beautiful motorcycle and I couldn’t help trying to catch it in the glow of all of that amazing neon on Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee. I like neon and I’m getting better at photographing it. My tripod would have helped, but I used a jeep bumper instead.

Nighttime in Quebec

This is a shot of the quiet city streets of Quebec, with the imposing and beautiful Chateau Frontenac looming in the background. When the rest of the city is either out partying or off to bed, I’m still out with my camera.

Vieux Montreal on a Rainy Night

These are the streets of Old Montreal just as the rain was subsiding. I loved being there because it was so quiet. It was just me and a few brave umbrella toting souls with the whole street to ourselves.

This is a street scene in old Toronto. It just seemed to capture the essence of dusk in the big city, a day just ending and a night full of possibility.
