Cream of broccoli soup with a twist

What makes this cream of broccoli soup special? Abundant amounts of parsley and garlic, parmesan rinds destined for the garbage from a restaurant, and lots of beer! It was a versatile soup too - cold it became a delicious dip.

Minor setback

Nearly done relining a black leather coat only to find that I have sewn the sleeves into something resembling a mobius strip!

Three Speed

Went to three speed on the spur of the moment with @Evanjerred on the same rainy night of shooting the dufferin mall. I had no expectations of the place but I like it there. Pretty laid back, pretty lights, good crowd. And bonus, it's a five minute walk from my house. Here are some photos I took of the place.

I definitely had Waupoo's cider and seem to remember getting something else, but I forget.


Great lighting, and you can just see "three speed" in the right of the frame written on the brick wall

Snowfall shoot

Appropriately I am writing this post today on the snowiest day this winter so far about shooting on the night of one of our first snowfalls in Toronto. It was a spur of the moment thing. @Evanjerred was enjoying the snow coating on the trees, but in my end of town that had already disappeared. As a result of that and the rain, we took a lot of our shots in the covered parking lot of Dufferin Mall. Great colours, great lighting.

There is a recurring impression of Canada that we lack culture. I'm going to tackle this one from the architectural front. Sure, we don't have much gothic stuff going on.

Sure, we don't have bullet holes in our columns (heck we barely have columns).

I don't often go to Union Station now that I live in Toronto, but going home for the holidays I was catching a rideshare from there. I was very happy to have my camera with me as I sat on a ledge outside the station.
