Canada Exploration

Coming from Southern California to Canada! Don't mess with the real life Walter Mitty; aka, Sosa. I had the privilege of meeting with a few creatives at some agencies I truly admired in Toronto. Fortunately, that weekend was a civic holiday so I had an extra day to spare. From there, I made the trek out to see one of the seven wonders of the world; Niagara Falls! it was a first in my book, hence I really was set out to transcribe each and every moment of that weekend. 

Downtown Toronto; August 2015

Lets Play Two! Statue aside Rogers Centre; Home of the Toronto Blue Jays. 

I had the opportunity to catch up with an old cousin in Canada. She got to show me the ropes and Snap my photo! Thanks Danielle.  

I highly don't recommend a lot of you at home to follow what I did unless you're a professional and know what you're doing. I had my rig set up the entire trip on the Hornblower. My hasselblad is meant to withstand just about anything since I was shooting film, there's no electronics required and my GoPRO has a water housing to protect it. All of the images you'll see today however, are digital.

My film is currently being processed, yes this includes post processing folks. I try and shoot film just about every weekend for my personal collection and for stock purposes. Some images I leave undeveloped for a few months, I want to look at the images with fresh eyes when the time is right; it helps curate my ideal design.

Exiting my Canada Trip, it was about networking and putting faces to some of those names. I felt as if I had accomplished what I had come, if not it's always a positive to take a risk in life. On the way out of Niagara, we had stopped at the Niagara Fallsview casino for parking.

I pressed my luck that day and slipped $20 in the slots, after 5  minutes at the same machine I was ready to walk away with $100. Morale of the story, it's always good to press you're luck because you never know when that day will be your lucky day. 

A Journey Ahead

Things are progressing here; as I took each day one day at a time and pushed myself to get to where I'm at. I could not have gotten here without the help of some very special friends & family. My next Chapter in life is coming up sooner than I can even imagine. As of December 30th I'll be splitting out of LA for a little while and starting a new journey.  I've set out and am going to make a cross country road trip. Reconnecting with old friends along the way, starting the new year fresh and hopefully leaving a large imprint on others lives.

Dive Into A New World!

My final destination on my game of life is Cleveland, Ohio. So far, it's looking like a 36 hour drive and I may possibly do it solo with my camera gear and that's it. Just know, I'll be living my dreams and getting out into the world.  I landed a job offer for a short time being, still applying my creative field and using my photography magic to the fullest! The big picture is who knows whats next. I try to wonder and imagine my new path and new journey; although, all I can imagine is the thought of being still and aware of just what's still in front of me for the days I have left here.  I'll be back sooner than you can imagine LA, keep on your toes and watch out for this new road warrior!
