Photographers Don’t Get Snow Days

People relish at the thought of a snow day; taking a bubble bath, drinking hot cocoa, or catching up on their soaps. When people start talking about a snow day, that’s when I get most excited of going out and freezing my ass off. When the weather gets bad, that’s when I’m most happy – the other way around it seems for everyone else.
After seeing news reports on tv I was debating whether to go out or not, all of the white stuff seemed to have been cleaned up. I shoveled the driveway, took my dog for a walk, and decided to head down anyways. I’m glad I went, or else I would have missed all these images.

Snowy Wednesday: Swan
This little guy, or gal, kept scooting closer and closer to where I was sitting taking photos of him. At one point he was closer than an arm lengths away. I’ve seen video of geese attacking people, so I wasn’t sure if this swan was going to flip out either. Also noticed he was the only swan out there, and was slivering from the cold. I don’t know how these animals survive such horrible weather out there.

Mid January, Perfect Time For Some No Pants Subway Riding

Mid January, Perfect Time For Some No Pants Subway Riding

So today was around -5 degrees outside, a little nippy, but that didn’t stop a brave bunch from dropping their pants and going for a ride on the subway. Why not mid July instead? Because that wouldn’t be as interesting. The event was organized by Improv in Toronto and marks the fourth year of the No Pants Subway Ride.

I personally would have liked less people on the train, it was difficult to walk around at times – but I can’t make up excuses for not getting the shots I wanted. If I wanted to get more shots, I would have. I also wish I wasn’t a guy doing this kind of photography, it’s a tad less creepy being a girl photographing other girls in their panties. I did get a few images I’m happy with, so it wasn’t a complete failure. Next years subway ride will defiantly be better.
