Downtown...everything's waiting for you.

We decided to play tourist in our own city and just go around the downtown core, starting at Eaton Centre, then to Chinatown, then back to Yonge-Dundas Square (where we were lucky enough to catch the 5th Edition Thailand Destination event).

Just wanna share some of the pics I took:)







Because I've been blogging for so long and have been taking pics of the family for a long time, it's easy to take candids of everyone coz they're so used to it. Now that I'm learning more about photography, I find this attitude helps me a lot.  It doesn't mean they like it though... more like tolerate:D














I've been kinda obsessing over black-and-white photography lately, so I thought I'd just share this video by Jamie Windsor. Love his YouTube channel.

My first brush with photography was black and white film so it's always had a special place in my heart. I can see why you love it so much as it really opens up a new way to see things. These are great and I especially love the portraits of your youngest and middle children where they both appear to be in reverie.
Hello Emmy
I think you are a really pro photographer. You show us great pics. And i loved to see your family together. And your kids are so cute. Kisses

Love the black and white shots. Your kids may not mind you taking their photos, but your husband sure does! Lol. And I'd be just the same!

Sounds like a fun day, and you got some great pics. You edited them beautifully, and they are really nice. But your husband in the first photo in the background just cracked me up! :)

Hope that you've been having a nice week! It's been a very cold one here!
