Olympus E-PL3 – Dramatic Walkabout in Chinatown
I was recently loaned an Olympus E-PL3 Pen Lite (Olympus Pen Lite) to test and evaluate (the white one on the bottom left). And while I haven’t had much time lately to play with it due to the Pickle, HoHoTO and the holiday, I have been using it regularly.  It has actually become my go-to camera and I’ve and found myself reaching for it befor [...]

Michael Smith Cartoonified at OCTA Summit 2010
Michael Smith Cartoonified — Originally uploaded by LexnGer Taken at yesterdays OCTA summit discussing culinary tourism. I have many more to share (where I didn't give into my new addiction to the cartoon feature on my cell phone) but I love the messiahic nature of this shot combined with Michael's strong message of storytel [...]

One Photo Per Hour: Hour 5

One Photo Per Hour: Hour 5
Working with my geek peeps before my next meeting… Which is somewhere I've been told isn't photographer friendly. Let's see how that goes. Yes, I have my big camera along too

One Photo Per Hour: Hour 4 #hourlyphoto #palmpre
Hour 4 and I find myself in the middle of a parade! Ryerson students took over Yonge and were parading and chanting their way south. Many more photos taken but no photo collage feature on the Pre yet.

One Photo Per Hour: Hour 3

One Photo Per Hour: Hour 3
Picking up a little travel reading, it’s time to take another photo. Luckily I’m not holding to Andrea’s one-take-only approach or you’d be seeing a very out of focus photo of a plastic dragon.

One Photo Per Hour: Hour 2

One Photo Per Hour: Hour 2
I'm a sucker for colour and texture.

One Photo Per Hour – Hour 1

One Photo Per Hour – Hour 1
Last week, my friend Andrea ( aka @missfish of challenged herself to take one photo an hour for a day. I thought this was another one of her brilliant projects and a great way to test the camera one my new Palm Pre. So, one photo an hour, all day, taken with my Pre… Let's see where the day takes us. Since my day started both late a [...]

Watching the Changes

Watching the Changes
Watching the Changes — Originally uploaded by LexnGer I just found out that this photo of mine was included in BlogTO‘s Flickr Forum post today.

The Race to Save the Giant Locust – Junkii’s blog
I realized there is absolutely no point in writing up my own description of our Nuit Blanche experience when Rockr has captured it so brilliantly. We all pretty much agreed that this year, Toronto’s Nuit Blanche was less interesting in terms of exhibits than it was last year. I mean, come on. Three boxes — one vibrating, one vibr [...]

The Opening…

The Opening…
What a whirlwind weekend.  As you probably know, I zipped down to Saint John to attend the opening of 50 Paces: an Installation.  I flew down the day of the show, and I was up at 4am to catch the recommended Airport Express for my 7am flight via Montreal. For some strange reason, I wasn’t able to sleep on the bus o [...]

Saturday All Nighter

Saturday All Nighter
While I’m already being teased about my ability to stave off sleep, I’m planning on participating in Nuit Blanche with Rockr & Junkii (or is it just the Junkiis) tomorrow night.  I have already compiled a list of all-night-CheapEats to keep my strength up, and Ger has been working on a list of installations to hit.  Some of th [...]

Pop!

Pop!
Let’s try this again…. Our current couch residents Rocr and Meon came with a car, so we dragged them out to THE GALLERIA to watch the rice cake machine poP! Join us by clicking "play". Oh… and this is my first YouTube.com.  It took 4 attempts to get it to load properly, but it came directly from my camera.&n [...]

Happy Pride!

Happy Pride!
Yesterday while cycling over to our mailbox I saw this street art being created for Pride. (more…)

Cereal, Coffee & The Inlaws

Cereal, Coffee & The Inlaws
Yesterday was an odd mix.  I grabbed a quick, very greasy, breakfast at the Patrician Grill and then zipped over to Starbucks on Front Street to work. (WIFI is my friend) As I was sitting there “working” I watch a young StarBuck assemble a matrix of espresso cups along the bar.  Each column was lined up with what looked like an [...]
