One of my resolutions for 2021 is to take my camera out more. I want to make an effort to take more photos, experiment and post more of my photography. I also recently invested in some good glass (better late than ever, right?) with the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 ii lens, which has certainly given me a boost of motivation!
With that in mind, I’m hoping to share more “photo diary” style blogs, where I’ll share recent work, any projects I’m working on or where I am and what I’m up to. The idea is to emphasize the photography element and allow the photos to speak for themselves. Previously, I used this format to share photos from my travels, like Iceland, Lisbon, Belgium, and more.
So, I hope you’ll stick around and enjoy this gallery from a recent walk around the University of Toronto and Queen’s Park.
University of Toronto
The University of Toronto consists of several beautiful, old buildings. It’s well worth walking around the grounds, and taking it all in.
The squirrels were brave on this particular day — they chased us (which was terrifying, haha!). Maybe they were hungry, but unfortunately, we had no food for them.
The Canon 24-70mm f2.8 ii is a gorgeous lens and has quickly become my go-to. It’s perfect for street, landscape and portrait photography — look at that bokeh — I wish I didn’t wait so long to invest!
I’m trying to get more comfortable in front of the camera!
Does anyone else get Wes Anderson vibes from this shot? I quite like how the composition of this shot turned out. The 24-70mm still goes wide enough on my cropped sensor Canon 7D for landscape shots.
I hope you enjoyed this short and sweet collection of photos! If there’s anything you’d like me to showcase in my next Toronto photo diary, please let me know in the comments below!
