A hotel. A business park. An hour to kill in the morning.

We have this great peanut-shaped lamp in our living room; a study in minimalism, it has clean lines and gives off a nice, diffuse glow.
I’ve always wanted to shoot it, but there are only so many ways it can be shot with visual interest. Then it hit me: what about a double exposure?
These are all in-camera Acros double exposures on my X-T2, straight out of camera.

A blue sky is something to be celebrated at this time of year. It’s all too rare.
They say you get the blues when you’re down; I find blue in the right places uplifting. Liberating. Light.
Duluth Street runs from the foot of Mount Royal park all the way to Parc Lafontaine. A narrow street, it’s dotted with boutiques, restaurants, bars and cafés intermingled with the apartments and old walk-ups. It’s a quintessential part of the “Plateau” that just shimmers in the low autumn sun.

Major’s Hill Park is the Capital’s first park, and has been a green space since 1826, when the building of the Rideau Canal began. In 1867, fireworks and bonfires in the park marked the Capital’s first Canada Day celebrations. It was formally established as a park in 1875.
For Canada's 150th birthday celebrations (ongoing throughout 2017), over 200,000 selectively bred Maple Leaf tulip bulbs were planted throughout the capital region. They haven't opened yet...
Major's Hill Park provides some very scenic views of Parliament and the Rideau Canal, since it sits up high. Take a look at the bike path below the Library of Parliament... if anything this underscores the wisdom of building on high ground.
