Leaving for Hong Kong 離加返港

【Behind the Image】
In a snowy morning on Wednesday, I took this photo at Toronto Pearson International Airport. The same photo was taken last year because the setup of the decorative panels in the waiting hall is eye-catching and stylistic. I was heading to the flight to Hong Kong where I will have a series of site visits, good for me to accomplish some photographic projects to reflect the changing portraits of Hong Kong in my blog.

Night shots in Toronto 多倫多夜景攝影

【Ontario Yours to Discover】
In the past two years, I used to go out alone to take pictures. More recently, my photo buddies John, Derek and I always met together for photography. So we called our group the  "Photographic Trio" to share photographic experience. That evening, we went to the Toronto waterfront to take shots of the late night view. We also went to the bridge of Brimley Avenue over Toronto Highway 401 to capture the traffic lights on the highway.

Vision from a small world 眼看小小的世界

【Ontario Yours to Discover】
That day, I went to Toogood Pond in Toronto for photography with a friend. This time, I took the Micro-Nikkor 55mm, f/2.8 AIS lens, a manual micro lens bought in the 80s of the era of film camera. Since the inception of the automatic digital camera, most of these full manual lens have been eliminated and put aside. In recent years because of the trendy retro, some photo lovers having used the automatic zoom lens for long time began to use prime lens to pursue higher picture qauality.

Toogood Pond High & Low 泰顓湖上群雁舞

【Ontario Yours to Discover】
It is rare that I may take a trip for bird photography. I remembered my first bird photography was done three years ago. At that time, I just bought a Nikon lens AF-S VR Zoom 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6. I drove 2 odd hours to Huntsvill, 230km north of Toronto. It was my first album on bird photography.

Mother and Child 母與子

【Behind the Image】
This afternoon, when I was driving along Warden Avenue in Scarborough, I was attracted by the charming maple on the roadside and decided to pull aside to take a photo of the maple. However, when I saw this young mother holding the hand of her daughter with care and love, I was touched and took this photo!

Bidding farewell in a rainy fall 秋楓秋雨別離時

【Ontario Yours to Discover】
October 14, 2013 was the last day of the Thanksgiving holiday. It was also the last day before the closure of the Oastler Lake Provincial Park Campsite in this year. it will be reopened in May next year. In the late fall, maple leaves have changed their colors. It is a good time to appreciate the fall colors. For this reason, I went to Oastler Lake Provincial Park campsite again, 230km north of Toronto to see the colors of the maple and take pictures of the last day of the park.
