First walk of the year.

As of last Sunday, it has been 23 days since I had my operation.

Still stiff, but the pain is mostly gone, expect when I take long steps. Coughing doesn’t hurt anymore, either. I have been doing so much better than I was 4 years ago. If you didn’t know, this is my second time having undergone this operation. This past sunday was Photowalk 15: Vieux-Montréal et Centre-Ville.

My friend, Daniel, decided to come pick me up, so we went together. This was my first decent walk since I had my operation; good thing the wind was cold so we had an excuse to go sit indoors and have a warm drink. I still have to be careful with lifting any weight over 9 lbs. I’m glad I decided to go with a ultra-light camera setup a few years ago.

It was nice to see fellow street photographers; it nice to hangout with people who have the same passion as I do. One thing I have noticed with the street photographers of Montreal is that they are not obsessed with gear. You can see that it’s about getting the picture and not just getting the gear.

Merci Dan!

Je me libère en marchant, ça me fait du bien, je fais des photos, des bonnes ou mauvaises, que souvent d’ailleurs je ne peux pas recommencer.  Raymon Depardon

Taking part in the Dogwood 52 Week Photography Challenge

Hey everyone!

A long time ago in a galaxy… A few year ago I did a Picture a day project for more than a year. And now in a galaxy not so far away and not so long ago I doing another year long project.

I was great to challenge myself and to open my eyes to the world we live in. This year I hopping on the Dogwood 52 week photography challenge. So I intend to post these on every sunday.

Week one Week 1 Story Telling: Self-Portrait.

Well I do a lot of street photography so here we go!

A few hours in Toronto

Every year, me and the twin usually go on a small road trip. This year we decided to check out Toronto, since both of us had seen it from the 401 a few times but had never really stopped to experience it. The goal was the get a feel for the city and to see if we would be interested in coming back for a longer stay.


We end up spending about 24 hours in Toronto. You’ll see a glimpse of it in these pictures, but I have to admit that downtown Toronto feels a bit like midtown NYC. I know they are different cities in many ways, but they have a similar vibe.


Next day we hit the road again...


Toronto, it was fun - see you soon (very soon)!!
