Laying down on the side of the pool, he stared up at the sky. The sun was still shining bright, and it would keep on for another few hours. He was at rest. Peace, for now, but what would happen when darkness fell?
“We’ll be fine,” she said with a smile.

These photos were taken at the Centre de Commerce Mondial, Montreal. I am starting to add flash to my portrait photography to fill in some light, and though this was done with the EOS 60D’s buit-in flash, I think it turned out quite well.
The strangest of all, it occurs to me
Is how it seems so clear further on down the road
The clock started ticking the day we weren’t free
And the feelings inside, they never even showed
Goodbye, my love, goodbye for now
We’ll meet again when the roads intertwine
Life carries on, find new ways somehow
Turn around sometimes and you’ll see we’re still fine.
The second batch from the “Home Blues” photo session. Part 1 of the session (and poem) is here. More shots after the jump!

I’ve got all that I’m allowed
No more barriers blocking me
No more chances, silence finally too loud
Now open roads are all I see
Turns out we were that way too long
But sometimes it takes a clear mind to believe
We felt we were fine, we felt we were strong
Convenience played us and time was our thief.

These shots are from a session on September 26 2012, all in the hallway of my apartment. Equipment used includes the Canon EOS 40D camera, the f/1.4 50mm lens, a floor lamp, steady hands, observant eyes and a “let’s try this and see what happens” attitude.
These are the best monochrome shots from the session.
When the sky cleared and the sun came out, the shadows drew the features of his face in a new light. These headshots were taken on September 5th, 2011.
