Cleaned my sensor…

leave a comment »

I noticed I had dust on the CCD of my digital camera so I decided to do something about it. I bought a cleaning kit with Eclipse2 solution and 4 cleaning swabs (http://www.2filter.com/prices/products/Sensor_Swabs.html) from Vistek in Toronto for ~$30. I was nervous about it at first…but it’s really not that bad.

Here are the before and after shots with the camera looking up at the sky at F22. There appears to be one dust spot left after the cleaning. Maybe I’ll try once more to see if I can get it off too.

Mango Lassi

We got this mango lassi at an Indian restaurant at St. Clair and Yonge. The waitress put a heart on it for us. That’s nice.

I can totally understand what this guy is feeling. Hard to study on a beautiful summer day.

Wedding in the Rain

leave a comment »

This was taken at Kaveh and Angele’s wedding. The rain did not dampen the celebrations in any way. In fact, it added a surreal quality to the afternoon. Apparently rain on the wedding day is good luck in many cultures and foretells of many children to be born to the wedding couple.

Shadows in a park

I happened across this park on King street west on my way back downtown from Bickle Centre.

I loved the coloured bulbs that lit up different colours…

BTW…I think that’s Ashley MacIsaac playing on stage there…

This is the ski hill behind the house I grew up in. It’s called Adanac ski hill in Sudbury.
