Yuri Kuklachev? & friend
Made by Kevin Steele
See below in comments: Is this an imposter & was the show I saw an impostor cat circus? --- Original caption: Yuri Kuklachev, founder and artistic director of the Moscow Cats Theatre I came across a blog where someone posted about the show and someone else commented about about how the animals must be mistreated. That person obviously does not know cats. You don’t get cats to do anything by treating them badly or by coercion. The secret of the Moscow Cats Theater is that they learn what the cats like to do – their ‘special power’ – and build the skits and routines around these idiosyncracies. _____________ “I observe what they do best and I play with them, using a lot of repetition, love, and food. It takes a lot of patience, because no one can force a cat to do anything it doesn’t want to.” – Yuri Kuklachev (source) I don't train them. They train me, Kuklachev said with the help of translator Mary Mondello. I have a theater. It's in the circus that they train. We find common language. (source)
CNE (aka The Ex)
Made by 001FJ
This was a handheld shot of 0.6s exposure. And it is my last photograph from the CNE :( I hope next year I will go again but next time I will make sure I will go on the air show day! Interestingly there were almost no photographers in the day, but at night there were so many! And some were professional photographers, I know that because they were using tripods and cameras that were at least twice as big as my camera with big lenses! Some were even using film SLR cameras! One of my little dreams was to own and use a film SLR camera (even though I’ve never used a film camera before), but a family friend who is a professional photographer told me that a couple of years ago he missed using film cameras so he bought a film SLR camera but he returned it after one week because he got just so used to digital cameras! He said the things that he once loved about film photography, such as not knowing how his shot will turn out until he developed it, were now the very same things that annoyed him most about film cameras! I hope by next year I will have a DSLR camera :) For now I like this shot a lot and I hope you like it too :) (Canadian National Exhibition. Toronto, ON; summer 2008.)
The Best Motorsports Photograph Ever Taken In The History Of Motorsports Photography, EVER!
Made by Ricardipus
You know, sometimes I really outdo myself. Straight outta the camera, no need to edit this beauty! Let me tell you what's great about this photo: 1) It's underexposed. No problem with annoying blown-out highlights! 2) Foreground interest. That camera lens really adds to the depth of the photo, and helps to set the context too. Professional photographers taking professional photos. 3) It's got a race car. Can't have a motorsports shot without a car. 4) Sponsor logos are blurred or obscured. No need to blur them out in post-production. 5) Lack of context. Without any recognizable landmarks, this could be taken almost anywhere. Flexibility is good in photography. 6) No human interest. It's hard to take good photographs of people, so much better to leave them out. 7) Motion. The car's blurry, and half out of shot. Really gives a sense of speed, doesn't it? There, I hope you learned something from this. One day, I aspire to repeating such an excellent shot. In the meantime, I'm going to go and read some photography books. Or maybe write one.

Windmill at Exhibition Place in Toronto. Official Windshare wind turbine site here: www.windshare.ca/ First Law of Thermodynamics The first law of thermodynamics is often called the Law of Conservation of Energy. This law suggests that energy can be transferred from one system to another in many forms. Also, it can not be created or destroyed. Thus, the total amount of energy available in the Universe is constant. Einstein's famous equation (written below) describes the relationship between energy and matter: E = mc2 In the equation above, energy (E) is equal to matter (m) times the square of a constant (c). Einstein suggested that energy and matter are interchangeable. His equation also suggests that the quantity of energy and matter in the Universe is fixed.

Toronto Harbour after the Storm - HDR
Made by Gregory Pleau
One of my favourite spots to take pictures of the city at night - the easternmost part of the Ontario Place parking lot. There is a geocache here called The West Rocks. This photo is a combination of 7 exposures tone mapped using HDR. The odd texture in the foreground water comes from the ice that was floating in the water. Of course, when combining different exposures, it can be difficult to get the ice to stand still and I ended up with this effect. The snow in the foreground is from Thursday's storm. Update: July 30, 2007: A print of this picture sold at the Picture the Cure Gala, to benefit the Canadian Cancer Society
Evening Comes in Hues

I keep getting this song stuck in my head. It's from the Swedish group The Concretes. I could listen to this all day and daydream about lazy Sunday afternoons in winter, when it's sunny yet still a bit cold to really enjoy being outdoors. Here is a link to the video www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qDwmqTueEs&playnext=1&li... I wasn't able to see them when they played here in Toronto a week ago. Maybe they'll be back someday.

Toronto Summer Night (HDR)
Made by Gregory Pleau
Yup, I'm back at it - now that the CN Tower has all these fancy lights installed, I had to come back to my favourite photo spot at Ontario Place and take another shot of the city. I was downtown for Franco-Fete, so this was actually a quick diversion on the way home. Another difference is that I ran each of the source images through Noise Ninja before combining them with Photomatix. Finishing touches were handled in Photoshop, and I decided to crop this one to be more panoramic.

I love this machine, last year I caught a few shots of it, including , but this year I'm not leaving without some night shots. Looks better larger. Two variations on a single RAW file combined manually with some overlaying and curves adjustments. Part of a series of shots on this wellenflieger ride at the Toronto Exhibition ('the ex'), 2006.

Getting the hang of gradients. Hope everyone likes this, because I sure do :) I spent a lot of time on it. Definately thinking of starting a 365 project soon, but I need to purchase a tripod before I do! b.l.a.c.k please either ask permission to blog my photos or credit them, thanks a bunch.

When We Were Young
Made by Rubex
I stood at the bottom of the farris wheel, looking at you go round and round. I could have gone, but I didn't, and now I'm standing on the ground, I regretted not taking that ride with you. Who knows what would have happened, who knows where we would be now? The ride comes around again...... -------------------------

Really yummy cake. Gotta ask Rick again where he got this. I wanted to eat more, but I had already eaten so much food!! Too full! Cake is from Dufflet - chocolate layer and a strawberry layer. I think I liked the strawberry one better. Lovely buttercream frosting, I loved the floral detail on the top of the cake.

David Garza - Formula Atlantic - Toronto, July 8, 2007. Axtel/Tecate/Madisa/USRT - US RaceTronics. What does a true racer do when he spins his race car in the wet to face on-coming traffic? Why, step on the gas of course... can't let them get by now, can we? Garza finished 10th in the race won by Franck Perera.
More riding in the sunset

The sunset was quite nice on Sunday evening while we were visiting the CNE... The CNE is an annual fair that announce the end of the summer and the return to school. It is held the last two weeks of August. It is a mix of rides, games and various pavillion with different exhibitions.
the last night of the fair...

carrying on my current fascination with (purposefully) overexposed and diffused lighting (as seen , and here) — a stroll through the grounds of the CNE on the last night, as everbody was tearing down and packing up.
