Default 52 Weeks in Toronto

52 Weeks in and around Toronto , or as it is called GTA Greater Toronto Area.

1. Week one 2014 Jan 2 , I call this "The HAND" even if it also has part of the arm as well. Kinda reminds me of a video game with a large hand (Final Fantasy XIII-2)


2.


3.

Good Luck and never give up.

Thank you, I will try and make it into a learning the camera at least for the start. The D7100 has a Scene mode where it does Landscape/Portrait/Night/Beach-Snow/Food etc. Will try and use all or most of them during the start of the 52 anyway. It has 16 choices.

Wonderful images well suited to B&W, and very nice compositions. I would like to have seen Rob Ford sitting in the hand with the tag line "Toronto has me eating out of its hand".
Cheers, Murray

There were people all around the hand and a person standing on the other side and I was moving around to block him out of photo. This one was the best. Camera shot it at 1/20th/sec so it added nice blur to the people.

For stuff like this I let the camera do exposure Used one of the Scene modesthe one for landscape not sure why it selects 1/20 for shutter and f/8 for aperture hmmm.
But that's why I doing this so can learn the less used features of the camera.
