Crowded Peter Sagan Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec

Crowded VII by Ted

Posted on 2023-04-29

I have been fortunate to follow elite world cycling all over the world.
The Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec is a tremendous event that benefits from not having the insane crowds that follow cycling in mainland Europe or the UK. That doesn't mean that they don't get crowds or knowledgeable fans. They do & in large numbers.
As a case in point, here is the adoring crowd for Peter Sagan in Quebec in 2016. At that time he was the world champion and the cycling equivalent of a rock god. He still is.
If you can spot him, he's the one with the top-knot.
In the build up to the race, race day-during and after, the majority of my shooting was focused closely on the star, or the action and the result.
But Sagan at that time was a huge magnetic draw for the crowds that at times made it difficult to get close enough for that profile shot. This image though was about capturing the huge magnetism of the personality and the man. It was also about the fans. Enjoy your deserved retirement Peter.

Angels Road Trip

Angels Road Trip by Rick T.

Posted on 2022-07-22

Over a thousand Hells Angels took a road trip into Toronto to pay respects to one of their own who has passed away. One of Toronto's many nicknames is Hogtown, so all those Harleys seem applicable. I took this photo yesterday looking north on Carlaw avenue at Eastern avenue. (Why "Hogtown"? The city was home to several abattoirs where many pigs met their makers during the Victorian and Edwardian era and the nickname stuck around.)

White Rock Beach, Pier

White Rock Beach, Pier, 2012 by Don Hudson

Posted on 2022-04-21

White Rock is home. The sands are from childhood summers.
Like in other places with piers, the White Rock pier is iconic, and symbolic. Partially damaged by violent weather's forces, it was swiftly restored through local efforts and leadership.

I'm fortunate to be the steward of a beautiful 80 hectare property on the rugged Precambrian Shield, north of my home in Kingston, Ontario. The land features forests, meadows, beaver ponds, rock outcrops and, notably, a 1.5 km portion of Depot Creek with 2 rapid systems and a waterfall. The creek provides endless photo opportunities with the changing seasonal weather conditions.

Cowboy (1983)

Cowboy (1983) by Michael Rawluk

Posted on 2020-05-25

Two years ago we had a huge roof leak in our house that went unnoticed because it didn't come through the ceiling. The insurance company took forever to respond. In the meantime lots of +30 celcius weather. The result was black mould. We had to clear the house of everything. Most of it went to the upper floor of our large shed. My wife and I did it and when it was done I felt like I was dying. Well, it turns out I was. I went to the doctor and after many tests was diagnosed with a rare bone marrow cancer called Myelofibrosis. Within months,I was unable to do anything. Contractors demolished the insides of the house and rebuild it. I slept. My wife organized everything and worked hard. Last year i had a Stem Cell Transplant and now I can do very little. It is a very long recovery period. I am also going through something called Graft versus Host disease. Not entirely pleasant.
The photo? I am using my time to scan old negatives. Something I have been planning for a long time.

.. dog & butterfly .. by Timber

Posted on 2016-07-31

.. some butterflies are elusive.. few can disappear as suddenly as the Mourning Cloak. I circled our deck which was surrounded by milkweek, hoping for a closer shot.. but where was it ? I knew it had landed.. so did the young dog.. Ah.. there it was in plain sight. It fluttered about for 10 precious minutes, in very light & warm breezes.. lots of milkweed & other flowers blooming.. and later I did get a fortunate close up.. wings spread wide, resting quietly

Drive by Snow Plow

As I drive I Sometimes Pick Up Strangers by Phil Morris

Posted on 2013-04-24

A Drive-By Snow Plow,

Love this invention, I almost feel like I am driving down 5th Avenue, down the cobblestone streets of New York, many, decades ago. I pick up whatever my catcher on 5th Avenue decides!

After sepia toning this black and white image I go to photoshop to lighten the highlight- shadows, then add color, then Orton Effect to bring back depth, then go back
and merge into sepia again, finish the gradation in color curves, final touches of color.

Most of Wendy's flowers have finished for the season. A few yellow and red roses are still trying to bloom, but now we just have to cut back, divide some perennials, and rake the leaves...again. But I love fall.

Un point de repère de l'histoire des Granbyens a été démoli.
Cette église catholique se souvenait de plein de baptêmes, de mariages, de funérailles et de cérémonies. Si ma mère voyait ça, elle serait bien triste. Elle y a chanté pendant plusieurs années.

Enigma by Phil Morris

Posted on 2017-01-26

B&W sepia toned photo, then using Dr. Martin's Airbrush watercolours which I used to paint the B&W image. A drop of red, half yellow and 2 sepia with water for the face paint, it can be applied either with a long q tip type stereo cleaner, but not a q-tip as it can easily scratch. It can be applied by an airbrush and small lines of the eyelashes with a 00 paint brush.

Reworked eyebrows, lashes, lips, in effect I use a lot of Hollywood retouch procedures in a more modern method at this time.

In-flight earth shadow

In-flight, earth shadow by Don Hudson

Posted on 2023-03-11

Vancouver to London: Earth's shadow from cruise altitude. As ordinary as the rising and setting of our sun is, sometimes an extraordinary sight catches the eye! The narrow, dark-blue band on the horizon, about 350km away still, is actually the shadow of our earth being projected off into space! The dark-blue band is the coming night. Above the band it is still daytime. The beautiful light from the setting sun shows the peaks of the Canadian Rockies below. We are looking at dusk which we sometimes call in photography, "the blue-hour" !

Pointer une caméra devant des enfants, c'est s'acheter un résultat bien incertain. Et c'est bien ainsi.
Putting a camera in front of children, that's wishing for an uncertain outcome. And this is O.K.

One of my very early childhood memories is rattle of my mother's sewing machine, when she has repaired our clothes or was sewing something for our household. The sewing machine with all it's moving parts was very mysterious to me. Now I am a happy owner of a very similar one.

Moose Lake hike

Moose Lake Hike by B. Thomas

Posted on 2019-11-13

The Moose Lake Loop Trail winds through the thick lodge pole pine tree forest and beautiful scenery to the lake. It is rated as a moderate hike, but to us it seemed pretty steep and hard but worth the effort. Moose are commonly encountered in this area.

We were happy to find a large female moose out in the water feeding on bottom plants. There was another moose on the other side of a small island.

Something Coming


Flag of CA

Honest Ed's bargain store (previously featured here has been torn down, and something new is coming to take its place. Maybe I should post more shots of Honest Ed's from when it still was standing. I probably have a few interesting shots.

Anyway, I liked the cranes here. I seem to have a thing for them.

since spring is a tad late this year... and cabin fever may set in, it was time for a stroll in front of the 7 sisters hydro-electric dam in late spring. this scene reveals a vast array of icy chunks and curtains. these are quite blinding in the bright sun, and many of these ice chunks are the size of small cars. the ice brings very interesting detail in cross section. the icy curtains are a few storeys tall.

this rare and spectacular species calls manitoba its favourite habitat. the pixelated bison can be seen every winter grazing on thick, tasty ice on the mighty red river -with this fella's herd ranging just south of the forks in winnipeg, canada. you can see just how thick the pixelated bison's graze ice can be... that crack beneath his feet has a white "shadow" along its length - this is the cross-section of a crack extending the full depth of the ice. the pixelated bison love it!

Relics by Ron

Posted on 2023-01-12

Relics from years gone by (World War II era) mark the start of the unpaved South Canol Road in the Yukon. This shot was taken in the early morning with a nice sunrise. This drive is one of my favorite in the Yukon since it provides remoteness, beautiful scenery, chance to see wildlife and opportunities to camp amongst nature.

The Shuswap has moods for all seasons. Shortly after this photograph was taken, the sheets of rain, white-caps on the rough waters and strong winds made life miserable for those who hadn't battened-down their sun shades!
As quickly as it has come, the photograph was "gone"!

A railroad to nowhere

A railroad to nowhere by Denise

Posted on 2020-09-25

My husband and I drove to Gaspésie in September 2020, remembering a bike tour we did there in 2012. It was our first big trip in our first year of retirement. At that time, we did cross this old bridge with our bicycles to wild camp on the beach on the other side and it was a thrilling experience because we watched the sunrise and we were so happy of our luck to be able to do this kind of trip. So when I saw again this abandoned bridge under the dark sky, I thought about the time passing by so fast and things changing irrevocably...It was a mixed feeling of nostalgia and a bit of fear for the future because of the pandemic...Let's hope the sun will shine again on the other side!

Paul in 1977 by Phil Morris

Posted on 2018-05-07

I found this other portrait I did of paul when I had been commissioned to do some
pictures of Paul and his sister. This image I used a Tiffen Fog Filter #3, and then
I had to further soften all the edges as the negative has deteriorated quite a bit.
The negs will have to go soon as the deterioration is getting bad. I suppose that
some negatives last longer. It depends on who developed the negatives for me.
I usually sent the negatives out for developing while I printed my own b&w photos.

the last ice masses of winter sit thawing in the spring sunshine near 7 sisters dam in manitoba, canada.
in about one month, it could be bikini weather at this location, so the change from spring to summer can take place quite quickly. at least for this year, we certainly hope it would hurry up a bit more!

Horseshoe Falls, "A Left-Eyed View"

Towering Falls by Steven

Posted on 2017-10-11

This was my first time seeing Niagara Falls and was amazed by its sheer power. I was then amazed to get a different PoV and notice people standing at the base of the Falls and noting the sheer scale of it. I had to capture this. This was a particularly windy day and many of the spectators got soaked by the blowing mist. We went down there on a later date when the wind took the mist in the opposite direction and kept us fairly dry.
