I have an aversion to selective colour as a processing technique, but I do like when it occours naturally.
Sugar Beach – so named for its proximity to the Redpath Sugar Factory – was designed by Claude Cormier Architectes Paysagistes and opened to the public in August 2010. I have been meaning to shoot there ever since I started seeing wintery pictures of it in the TO Flickr pool. Imagine my dismay upon returning from Ottawa to a decidedly un-snowy Toronto last week, and my subsequent (relative) glee at awakening to a couple of inches of fresh powder on Sunday morning.
I really have to remember that even though it’s March, I still need to bundle up. I have absolutely zero resistance to the cold – I was shivering and I couldn’t feel my feet by the time I even got to Queen’s Quay and Lower Jarvis, and I was more concerned about hypothermia and frostbite than exposure and composition. Natural selection, indeed! I was not built for this country’s winters.
Just a quick post this week, as I am in the throes of packing and wrapping things up here before I move this weekend.
