This past weekend Toronto played host to Woofstock, a yearly event in which dogs of every size and breed come out to play – no cats allowed!
I’m not fortunate enough to have a dog in my family just yet, though that didn’t stop us from sharing in the festivities and taking plenty of pics (while being careful to not step in poop, mind you ).
It’s funny; walking around without a dog had many people asking, “Where’s your puppy? How can you be here without one?”
Thanks for reading!
Everything that’s wrong about the shot above is what I like about it; the cut-off subject, wonky composition, strange highlights and confusing elements.
There’s nothing really cohesive in this picture but somehow it appeals to me. Maybe it’s the fun that was had in the process, “shooting without thinking” so-to-speak. No specific concept in mind, just loose and random.
I’d say 99.5% of my daily shots consist of random stuff like this. And funny enough, they’re the ones that satisfy me the most. So next time you’re out shooting, stop trying so hard to look for compositions and just shoot…see what comes of it.
It’s all about having fun, the way street-shooting should be!
Maybe I’m back, maybe I’m not. First things first: I must change the format of this blog to enable me to update it on a regular basis without being overwhelming; time is limited, and maintaining a blog should be fun!
I’m thinking of moving toward a “photo a day” kinda blog. What do you think?
(btw, the view above is that of Tokyo from Tokyo Tower. A mashup of a city, if you will )
Expect some changes very soon!
