Catching Up

I apologize - It's been almost 2 months since my last posting here. I have fallen behind in both my reading and posting. It's time now to catch up.
In the past 2 months I've been working to pick up the camera more often. I've managed a few fashion shoots in the last few weeks...

A set for a friend who is hoping to walk the runway at [FAT] this spring...

Others for someone missing a friend fighting overseas...

I've also been re-falling in love with Toronto. I didn't grow up in the city, but when I came here from school I fell for the city and never left. Every winter I tend to go into hiding, traveling through the city's undergrounds to avoid the harshness of winter. It's been in the last few months that I've slowly been sneaking out of underground hiding and re-exploring the city I live in. It's nice to be able to venture out again and find new restaurants and interesting alleyways. I have a fascination with cities. I love the hidden nooks, the pace, the pulse of a city. They have a power and energy all their own. Each one distinct, but each one invigorating. I look forward to this summer...plans to explore more cities ;)

Some recent exploring...

I've also been noticing that my buying habits at the book store are changing. I realize that I'm looking more and more at the photography greats books. Buying the Vanity Fair Portraits, or Richard Avedon's Performance. I don't know if it's a growth in my photography, or a change in my desired subjects. With that - I will close things with this:

We all perform.
It's what we do for each other all the time,
deliberately or unintentionally.
It's a way of telling about ourselves
in the hope of being recognized
as what we'd like to be
- RA

- more soon - less wait...
