The first outing of 2016, a sunrise at Humber Bay, bringing two cameras, bargain bin surprise of Nikon F80, loaded with a roll of Ilford Delta 100 and Olympus PEN EP-5. Felt rather geeky bringing out two cameras, but decision that was definitely justified, given the morning.
More I keep returning to this place, Humber Bay keeps offering different perspectives and stimulations. It almost makes me wander if there will ever be the end to this, am I ever going to return to Humber Bay and decide that it is done, all of it has been captured. Somehow it does not seem likely at this oasis of peace and stillness, a stone throw from a growing condo village nearby.
Weekday morning, could not stay away from vivid colours of a sunrise, overcast cover finally dissipating, giving sun that blank canvas to paint on. Rich colours and many tones of grey turn a regular park into a mysterious place. A landscape far removed from mundane morning routines and busy weekday schedule. Drama of colour and light unravelling within the clouds, skimming the surface of the lake and spilling onto the rocky beach of Humber Bay.
On Toronto’s Water – only fitting name for the project. Our ravines and waterways as a way to transcend, if for a moment, into a different existence. Colours and light on Toronto’s waters, quite a place and a beautiful view. One could not want for a better photographic mission.
