New york — The weather had looked quite stormy all day, but I decided to risk going out to capture the majestic Manhattan cityscape from Brooklyn Bridge Park. I’d seen this view from a lot of other photographers, so I really needed to make my image stand out. Sadly the park ranger didn’t like me standing on the rocks and threatened to arrest me. I took a couple of steps back and this seemed to appease him. ...
Hong kong — To round off our several weeks of round the world travel, myself and Greg finished up in Hong Kong, one of my favourite cities in the world and one which I hadn’t visited for 12 years. It had changed ...
Manhattan — Foremost, please go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/thefella/11452001426/ to see a much better quality photo. It’s been completely mangled here. So much so, I can’t actually be bothered writing a stor...
Toronto — Up until March, this site across the street from my building was a busy parking lot. Fences arrived first, and it was all downhill from there. When I leased this apartment last summer, it was after a...
Rainy Winter City
Patient pup guards the parish
Love your city.
Looking for escape routes
Flickering gas and glittering steel: winter nights in the market.
Graffiti wisdom and yearning
Daybreak over the not-so-sleepy city.
Move day. Goodbye, construction site of strange fascination.
I want to return to Istanbul
Behind it all
It's Saturday. They had to refuel and now they've found a clay layer.
Things they have unearthed: a pet rock, and a rusty tank.
Even condos must be planted deep in the earth before they can sprout.
Mornings start when they do, from now until we move.
I have done my city a disservice, comparing its architecture unfavourably to others.
Art Deco meets Brutalism?
Maybe, just maybe, we can start to believe in Spring.
King of the Ice Fields, Lord of the Frostbanks.
Too early for Spring flowers, but the cranes have been breeding in the snow.
I've spent far too many hours enjoying this view.
? I keep expecting something to happen every time I pass this corner.
Love this echo of Ontario Place. Some of the best street art hides ugly utility boxes.
My other downtown hobby: collecting Toronto Dreams Postcards.
Not so different from downtown, really.
When we talk about facadism, this is what we mean.
Remnant of another era
Moss and rust. Too much rain.
Fascinating mish-mash of architectural details: why the fortress-like roof edge?
On my way to work. Pass this gorgeous sight every morning until the leaves go.
These two buildings sit side by side. Wonder if the inn was still open when the meat packers moved in.
Suddenly, random art interrupts your lunchtime routine.
Bright copper against a dull sky. How long before it turns green as the vines reaching for it?
Keeping an eye on the city.
This tree is a rebel. Or maybe the source of gravitonium.
Strange skyline in a city full of growing pains. We think we're older than we are.
Typical Toronto skyline.
#you are in a labyrinth. But aren't we always?
Last time I walked by, there was a temple here. Now there are only the bones of the earth.
