Had some fun with my new tilt/shift lens before the show. That long line of suits were our ushers.

The red carpet was madness. Outside, it was even more hectic. This is when BOA arrived.

Took the train yesterday to Kollaboration 9. The show was crazy. 6,300+ people, sold out and then some. I was supposed to be the backstage photographer, but I got caught up in ticket/police/parking/celebrity problems so i only got a couple out from early in the afternoon. Taking the train gave me some photo ideas.

Here is a train in Toronto.

I wanted to print a gigantic flower for my sister's birthday present because she told me how much she liked one hanging on a wall at her wedding.

I ended up stitching a whole series of closeups of this flower together to get this image. It doesn't look it, but there's enough pixels to print it 4 ft x 4 ft. Unfortunately, I didn't think ahead about how I would ship something so big to Toronto. So I ended up only printing it 1 ft x 1 ft.

Oh well, I'll print it huge some day.

If there's one thing I like more than water towers, it's billboards. The above and below pics were taken at the distillery district in Toronto

I think today it was nice outside. I wouldn't know though because I am sick at home.

I took the above picture waking up one morning in my sister's condo.
