Took a walk and a tour of Niagara on the Lake and was surprised to see that almost all the blooms were gone. So sunny! I took a few odds and ends. Here are two:

A stroll in High Park...

I absolutely love the color in this one, John. Also the fact that the shape of motion turns the blossom into something like down feathers which detaches it nicely from what it really is.

Thanks Oscar. And to think I almost deleted this one. Guess it pays to wait a while before making final decisions.

Yes. It seems the poorer the better. And if you work at it and stay observant, you can attain effects using shallow depth of field. Main and secondary OOF effects and motifs.

A walk in Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ontario. So beautiful and sunny with rolling clouds. Not very conducive to good photos, but was with others so enjoyed it anyway. And experimented in harsh light.

A few:

The sense of movement and abstraction in the walker and the dog works very well. Them being light apparitions in a dark forrest obviously is golden. I'm not thrilled by the tilting, but I do get why you chose to do that.

Thanks Oscar. She is going up a hilly path and out of the park. Perhaps too much slant for me to straighten. That dog was dying to come after me. She kept pulling him back.

If you leveled the ground, the trees would have a very strange tilt.
I like it as it is.

As I said earlier, I am really enjoying your posts - some of the most creative and imaginative on this site. It also seems we are practically neighbours, as I am in Guelph.

I’m curious about what you are using as your “walking around” system.
