A Black and White Winter.

Recently, and by that I mean over my entire time with a camera, I’ve been the biggest fan of black and white photography. However, side note, I’ve been trying my best to capture colour and sharpness and stepping away from the black and white trend, also because when you black and white a photo it hides a few imperfections and makes super amateur photographers (like myself) look a slight bit better than they actually are.

ANYWAYS! – here are a few landscape black and white’s that I’ve taken throughout this extremely cold southern Ontario Winter.

I’m house sitting for my friends while they escape the Canadian dream to pursue the warm sunshine hug of a beach in Florida. Which really makes me wonder about the ideas of vacations. We live our lives somewhere but need an escape from them known as a ‘Vacation’.

Are the lives we create for ourselves really that depressing that we need to escape from them to somehow regain our, possible happiness or purpose… or something. – Anyways.. I’m house sitting for them while they do that.. I guess.

for real though… They have a cat and a small dog and a small apartment in southern Ontario Canada. also, it’s been one of the coldest winters in 50 years, also, I’m really lazy and love to sit around on the couch and tweet about things I think that I think about while watching indie Films on Netflix. – So, the thought of taking care of an animal is dreadful. – Well, ok, it’s not that bad.

Anyways, in order to walk a small dog in a snow covered world, involves preparing the small dog like a 5 year who wants to go play out in the snow…. mittens.

Here is a shot i snapped with my 60D while attempting to put these stupid little mittens on this funny looking nervous, almost hairless little animal. – I got lucky, but sometimes in the right light, my 18 – 55mm 3.6 kit lens can take a really sharp shot.. This is almost one of those times.
