I’ve taken many photographs with my phone over the years. Mostly I think they are remembrances and a sort of digital collection. I’ve turned even more than usual to photographing the sky over the past few months. Here’s several more sky and cloud photos over Toronto that I’ve taken, including one from a winter past.… Continue reading The Sky, 2
The sky, it feels like freedom, like safety, like a reprieve from this hard time on earth, offering a different perspective that the birds know and inhabit, flying south to the lake in seconds, soaring and diving with grace. I imagine flying with the birds, unchained from fear and vertigo, into the dusk clouds as… Continue reading The Sky
Toronto--January 7, 2020
I've been carving 4 block prints that I'll be entering into a show in Toronto. When they're done, I'll post them here. But, in the meantime, here's a photo I took on December 28th while on the streetcar. There was an unusual occurrence--the sun came out after a generally very grey autumn and early winter!

On an abnormally warm day (it's going up to 19 degrees celsius) and before the leaves fall any further, here's three photos from the past few weeks. The middle photo of the maple is on the University of Toronto campus--on Philosopher's Walk. The… Continue reading The Past Few Weeks
This beautiful morning, with purple clouds and orange leaved trees: Toronto 8:10 a.m, looking southwest.
We had a day of much much rain and wind yesterday. The tail end of Hurricane Patricia was passing through and we may still be having the aftereffects with high winds continuing today. Last night, the clouds were beautifully dramatic over downtown Toronto and Lake Ontario. I'm in a large city, where I look to the… Continue reading After the Storm
