Branching Out

I skipped a day. It happened.

Yesterday was a very busy Sunday for Vahida and I, and I realized that most of our Sundays are going to be this way. We have a number of reoccurring activities that happen on Sundays, such as mosque, visiting her parents and then there is chores. I decided yesterday that I am going to take Sundays off. Shortly after making that decision I started to feel really guilty, so today I am revising it. Instead of not posting anything on Sundays, I am going to post a photo from my archive. I am going to keep this missed day as a reminder that if I miss a day, guilt will follow.

Today I took a walk after work. We had a guy come to change our unit door conveniently at lunch, so I was not able to get out earlier. Luckily the days are not as short – as they were at the beginning of winter – and I was able to get out while it was still sunny. Instead of walking North or East, I chose to walk South/West – which is a new direction for me. I ended up at Queens Park and then some part of The University of Toronto. The buildings looked great in this area, but the lighting was not in my favour. With the sun setting, and the tall buildings all around, it was too shaded to get some detail coming out of the buildings. There were vines growing all over them and I can see that in the summertime this area will be very nice.

This particular vine caught my attention. I stopped to check it out and took out my phone to grab a few shots to see if I liked what I was seeing. I had my big camera with me, but didn’t want to haul it out if I wasn’t to big of a fan of the shot. After getting the shot with my phone though, I liked it so much that I decided to just go with it and leave the camera packed up.

I used my Samsung Note 4 with whatever lens it comes with. It was 100% auto, but Lightroom tells me it was at 1/35, F2.2, with an ISO setting of 64. It was a nice sunny day when the shot was taken.
