Is it broken?

IMG_1054.jpg

After jumping off the stage at the end of his set… Marcel, Lead vocals and guitar of band called Die Hexe , announced to the audience that he thought he broke his ankle.

For the rest of the show, he was be asked probably around 100 times.. if it was broken..

no word yet from the doctor whether or not it is actually broken.. but pretty punk rock regardless of the outcome.

Canon 60D Kit lens blah blah blah

Keeping The Smile

20140617-172053-62453231.jpg

Sometimes when we least expect it, the smallest yet most significant things in life will fly by without us ever acknowledging or realizing their, or the moments, existence. How often do we only desire the future, do we only desire anything but the here and now. I do this all the time, my only wish is for the things that I am anticipating or something weeks away that could happen.

This photo was taken on a 35mm toy camera with a slight bubbled fisheye 35mm lens on the cheapest 400iso film I could find. – I bought it for .99cents and was hoping it would produce some interesting light leaks but turns out to work flawlessly – it even has a hot shoe for a external flash.

I was walking around the old city on the river (Gault) with my girlfriend Sarah. She was joking around saying she wanted ice cream and started pulling my arm, so I decided to joke and pull her the other way, I was holding the camera in my other hand, turned it and without looking through the view finder, snapped this photo. It was one of the first photos I had taken on it and I wasn’t even sure if the shutter was opening all the way.

I love this photo. To me , it’s one of the best photo I’ve ever taken, if not my most favourite. Not because it’s in perfect focus or because it’s perfectly framed because it’s non of those things. It’s actually a terrible quality photo.

The best thing is the smile. The best thing is the emotion. The best thing is the happiness.

The best thing is that I captured a moment that would have been forgotten, that I actually forgot ever happened until I got the film developed. I had to search my memory and ask Sarah where and why this photo happened. It just brings about so much joy to my soul when I see this photo. This photo doesn’t just represent a image, it represents a moment in time.

Thanks for reading.

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.

Waffle House.

Here is a pretty standard view from every Waffle House in the world.

I am from the land of Canada were Tim Hortons reign supreme over all else. – But to me an American Waffle House captures so much essence of everything that claims to be the American Dream.

Starting with it’s 24 hours a day operating time, Anytime you wish to consume something you can. – The thing about a Waffle house is that they are all completely different but exactly the same. – There will be mediocre food and yelling in almost every Waffle House in the world. –

Usually when you walk into a Waffle House it will employ a variety of human beings from all different races from across the world that now reside in America. The definition of the American Dream.
