266/365 – The Ideal Companion With A Twist

Today we are revisiting The Ideal Companion, post 106/365, published on April 1st 2015. This is the last one I have reworked for our photo exhibition, hope you enjoy.


264/365 – Seeking Higher Ground Reinvented

If you are following my blog, you must be aware that I am part of photography group called Momenta and we are presently having an exhibition in Montreal.

For the exhibition, I picked 1 photo from every month of my 365-Day Project from December 2014 until August 2015. For the occasion, I decided to rework some of my photos. I intend on sharing them with you in the few days to come.

You might recall the photo posted on August 21st 2015, 243/365 – Seeking Higher Ground, it underwent a metamorphoses. See if you like it.

238/365 – The Smoker and Other People from the Back Alley

Unless I photograph people from the back or in a way where they could not be recognized, I ask for their permission; most people say yes. Here are a few I got to pose for me during the photography workshop.

186/365 – Next Stop: Khalid Bin Al Waleed

I haven’t been able to shoot every day lately. The selling/moving of our house in NYS has kept me busier than I wished.

Today is my son’s 24th birthday! I have been busy cooking all day his favorite food for tonight’s dinner.

So I decided to show you a couple of photos shot while at a photography workshop in Dubai.

The first one is from the Khalid Bin Al Waleed metro station and the second one was taken at the Burj Khalifa metro station.

98/365 – Beam me up

So this is the second project I made for my Photoshop class. This one is not as technically involved as the one I presented to you yesterday, but I personally find it pleasing. I am also including the photos used in the making of this one.

97/365 – Break on through to the other side

In early January of this year I started a course at Concordia University: Digital Dimensions Photoshop I & II, CEPH 219. The course ended last Monday and today I had to hand in my final project.

We were warned on the very first class by the teacher that this is a difficult class, taught in accelerated (two levels being taught in one) and that it is not for everyone.  The course was not easy for me, until class 8 (there were 10), I wasn’t sure I would be able to produce the final project. Since I really want to have Photoshop in my tool box, I stuck with it until the end. I am not looking to drastically change the way people look, but I might want to use it at times in a form of artistic expression.

For our final project we were asked to create a composite image. Meaning with several photos I took, I needed to recreate a new one. I am presenting it to you tonight. I know it is amateurish, but it is my very first one and by no means do I pretend to be good at it. I am including a gallery of all the photos that were involved in the making of this composite image, just for you to see. I was disappointed with the result, but at the same time satisfied I was able to do it. I ended-up creating a second composite image which I will present to you tomorrow.

     Break on through to the other side

 After a long, harsh winter, spring is reluctant to make its grand entrance. Whether abrupt or gradual, the transition from one season to the next is always miraculous, and a worthy subject of a metaphorical image.

You know the day destroys the night
Night divides the day
Tried to run
Tried to hide
Break on through to the other side     – The Doors
