Denied---Toronto---October-2015 © 2015 Jorge. All rights reserved.

After the first period in the game that I was invited to shoot, the teams switched sides, which brought my friend’s son’s team closer to where I was perched. I removed the extender, which allowed me to dial the lens … Continue reading

A friend of mine asked me to take some photos of his son playing hockey (his son plays goaltender). It was definitely a new experience for me – and very challenging. Between the odd lighting and the fast action, it … Continue reading

It can never be denied that the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York (September 11th, 2001) was a tragedy. Regardless of what anyone thinks in regards to the event itself (and what led up to it), a … Continue reading

If you have never been to the High Line, make sure you check it out if you ever visit New York City. It is essentially a linear park built on an elevated railroad spur along the west side of Manhattan. It … Continue reading

About Face

The vegetation along the High Line (New York City) is quite spectacular. On a recent walkabout in the city that never sleeps, I saw this cluster of Asters in the linear park that looked like they were watching over the path. The overcast … Continue reading

I shoot photos of my daughter’s soccer team for myself and the other parents24 because I think action shots of sporting events are cooler than the posed photos that the league provides. In the non-posed photos, you can really see … Continue reading

Not Quite Harvest

This photo is an improvement over the one I took earlier this year. It’s true that this moon is much closer to being full – and while this is great because it is reflecting more light from the sun, it … Continue reading

While insects may give some people the heebie-jeebies, to others they have the potential to hold deeper meaning. Sometimes, insects remind us of people in our lives that we treasure – or perhaps they are a sign of positive events … Continue reading

The garden in front of my house attracts all kinds of pollen-gatherers. While my ongoing quest to capture a European Wool Carder on film is still not complete, there are other great opportunities that are constantly presenting themselves. This hover … Continue reading

Astrophotography is definitely not my strong suit. I took a number of photos last year, and only one of them really turned out the way I wanted it to. Attaining a crisp image is challenging because keeping the exposure too … Continue reading

At the Ready

At-the-Ready---Essex---July-2015 © 2015 Jorge. All rights reserved.

During a weekend near Essex, we visited the home of some friends who had an amazing garden in their backyard. A good rule of thumb: where there are beautiful gardens, there are also usually beautiful insects. A cursory inspection wasn’t … Continue reading

When it comes to insects, I don’t think that you can do worse than flies. They are associated with rotting carcasses and disease, and they tend to invoke a flurry of flailing arms when they fly around people. Yet, from time … Continue reading
