I hardly go over to downtown Toronto . Today I attended some property conference and could not wait to get out with my camera in this 17degree 70F weather (summer like weather in late Nov).

That's an interesting looking building, better than anything that's local to me.

It is one of those avant garde sculptures
Cannot figure out what it was though
I have found out I can get away with any on-ground shot by not focusing at all
For some subject of close distance like this one , I set it to 2 ft. That was it.
Thanks for looking

Daniel

Interesting building shots. I like the lighting. I notice that you favor your fisheye lens. Have you experimented with using it for portraits? There is a member on flickr called "Like the Jetsons" who uses the fisheye lens for really interesting and funny fisheye shots. Here's a link to check it out. Again these are not my pics.

They are good shots. Thanks for bringing that to us. But you can only take fisheye portrait shots really really close to the subject ( and it is obtrusive) . For portrait, my favorite is either FA50 or FA135mm. Unobtrusive. Subject tend to be more relaxed and natural.Andthe best part is thatthebackground can be blurred out. But that may just be me.

This is probablymy only fisheye part portrait. It does show the prowess of the lens. As you can seethe subject happens to be not keen at all being photographed. And guess what she calls the shots all the time.

Street photography - Non. Not even a street in there? LOL. Architectural OUI.

The last photo in the "cafe" is, IMO street photography/portraiture. I actually like that one quite a bit.
