Currently there are still a few working telephone booths in Toronto, and I got three of our grandchildren to pose in and around one of them to show interesting juxtapositions of the old versus the new. This is one of my favorites of the shots I took.
As part of my rehab. from my right hip replacement at the end of August, I've been walking two miles a day One day, while walking, I noticed a fossilized impression of a maple leaf in the concrete sidewalk, and when the leaves turned, drove back to the spot with my gear, arranged this composition and grabbed this shot
Taken a few years ago in an alley off of Spadina Avenue in the heart of the original Chinatown, here in Toronto.
Normally I don't photograph Graffitti as it is someone else's art, and more important, so much of it is badly done, but in this case, I thought the subject matter was so timely and well done that I grabbed this shot.

Taken a number of years ago, here in downtown Toronto, while walking on Queen Street. with a photobud.
I noticed the window display next to the sign and seeing the humour in the situation, grabbed this shot.
I've been bad for the last six or seven months and haven't been shooting much at all. Last Sunday, I was downtown and waiting for my wife and grand-daughter so I went to Kensington to kill time and walked around. I passed one of the neighbourhood stores that deals in used goods of every description. The owner always brings a ton of merchandise out onto the sidewalk, and then spends the day sitting on the doorstep reading the paper. I liked the story, and grabbed this shot.
Taken about two years ago while in New Orleans with my wife on a short holiday. Regardless of the time of day or night this homeless man was to be found just down the street from our hotel, on his own small piece of real estate, and very early one morning while I took my daily street photo walk, I grabbed this shot

Taken a couple of weeks ago when two of our Grand-children stayed with us for a night. Evan, who is five was born with the animal-loving gene that courses through our family starting with my mother.
Early in the morning while one of our cats was sitting by the window eyeing the birds in the yard, Evan sat down beside him, and I grabbed this shot. Converted to black and white in Photoshop.
This was taken yesterday in Kensington Market, here in Toronto, and while I've been coming here since I was born (my Grandparents lived here for many years and it is where my mother and her siblings were born and raised) I have never seen anything like this in over forty years of shooting.
I was on my way to meet a photobud in the Market when I noticed a mother squatting over the edge of the sidewalk, holding her young daughter who was urinating on the sidewalk and road, while the father rummag
Taken in Detroit at one of the MUFI (Michigan Urban Farming Initiative) sites earlier this summer. I with a photobud who is documenting the State's program that encourages local groups to farm on vacant land within the city of Detroit.
We had just finished a tour of one site, and as I was to take a photo from the adjacent sidewalk a car pulled up and the driver jumped out, pulled out a photo-collage, posed on his car and asked me to take his photo. I'm sure he had no idea who we were or why we
