Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk 2017, Elora

Last Weekend was the Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk 2017. This year I joined a group in Elora Ontario.

Elora is a village with many tourist shops and plenty of photo opportunities. The group had a great time exploring the village. Each came back with their unique photographic take on this picturesque setting.

Here is my take.

Reflections of Montreal



I loved the reflections of the old and the new on the corner of Sherbrooke St. E. and Saint-Urbain in Montreal, Quebec. I shot this last March.




Some of my favorite subjects. Rusted metal, textured wood, and peeling paint!
It’s an old latch on a double door of an old shed.

I shot this in New York City back in 2013. Just one of those things that caught my eye and made me smile.

Window Dressing – before & after

Part of the fun of photography for me is post processing. It allows me to get creative and reproduce what I saw in my mind’s eye when I took the picture.

I don’t usually do this but I thought I would include the before shot in this post as an example.

When I took this shot I loved the colours and the symmetry created by the windows and the curtains. The problem was all the ugly hydro wires. I literally looked past the wires and took the shot knowing I should be able to do something with it in post processing.

For the curious, my tools were Lightroom, Photoshop and ON1

This photo was taken in Toronto – November 2012

This is the third and final post in this series from the Dundas St. United Church in Woodstock Ontario. I found these stairs to have beautiful lines and flow. They don’t make them like this anymore!

This is a shot of the stairs going up to the balcony where I took the shot of the sanctuary in my previous post. I love the lines and curves of this staircase! Location: Dundas St. United Church – Woodstock Ontario.
