Wicked November

I like the wispy reflection of bare trees and the constant ugliness of a crane. Only just managed to get the shot as my battery died about 4 minutes later.

Nu Music Nite at the Horsehoe

I've fallen a little behind in talking music over the last few weeks, but wanted to get this one out tonight as it looks like Tuesday's Nu Music Nite (NMN) at the Horseshoe should be a good one.  Our first experience with NMN was last month's We are the Take and The Temper Trap gig and we're still talking about that show.  Tomorrow's gig showcases some interesting local sounds with The Most Serene Republic and Still Life Still.  I just spent some time on their MySpace pages and I'm immediately impressed with their creative edge and complex compositions.  In addition to hearing some great new music, the other hard-to-argue plus for NMN is that there's no cover charge.  Can't beat that kids.

On my music travels tonight I found that CBC Radio 3 site has info on both these bands and a really nice interface.  Missed that one, shame on me, apologies to CBC Radio 3.  I'm listening now.

I saw a lovely shot of Massey Hall a while back with the red doors reflecting in the wet street, no rain today, but some nice sunshine provided some interesting lighting, plus I'm maximizing my time with a borrowed fisheye lens.

Fall roof prep for Winter ice damming

I nice balmy day today was perfect for this tricky job. These are heated wires that are supposed to prevent ice build up and the troubles of ice damming which leads to leaking.

Sweet child of mine - not

My son started to learn Sweet Child of Mine on the guitar tonight.  His friends picked it for their talent show song slated for the Spring.  Unfortunately, I've always disliked the song, but it wasn't so bad with his guitar teacher singing.

I get in the car to head to my ultimate game and the track CFRB 1010 use as an intro to the next segment after the commercial is Sweet Child of Mine.

My daughter's school is having an 80's charity night as well tonight.  My wife had quite the outfit and hair, I preferred to sweat it out on the ultimate field rather than the dance floor.

Why start yet another new blog ?

I have a few blogs already, but I'm learning that people like blogs with a focus.  Therefore for those that like to look at a photo a day and decipher a message or just appreciate pictures ofurban life, my life and occasionally something more unusual, then I hope you like this blog.

A few days ago I started a new personal photo project (posted on Flickr) with the same theme and title of this blog.  I'm attempting to post a photo a day, but the rule is that I don't edit the images once they are on my computer and of course, I'm striving for good photography.  "Good" meaning technically, the photo is well composed, well exposed, well lit etc and also says something to the viewer.  Of course this is all highly subjective, and I'd welcome your thoughts and comments and all the photos.  The secondary point of this blog is to not procrastinate sharing with goals of perfection via photoshop edits, but simply share a photo on a daily basis and learn how to take a good photograph "in camera".
