The Photographer

I had just climbed up the stairs leading to Casa Loma (110 of them!) when I happened upon this fellow with a tripod set up and he was attaching his large format camera to it. I presume he was after a pic of the CN Tower through the branches but things didn't seem to be going well so I didn't disturb him!

Always fun to see other photographers in action.

What a cool place to photograph, but the stairs are not very exciting! ;-)

That is something we do not see all that often on blogs, other photographers in action. Good catch.

Down on his knees. For Christmas I asked for and received construction type knee pads. I'm always getting down like this guy.

It's always fun to capture another photographer at work hey Pat, I'm always so curious to know what their shots were like :)

Lois said...

Nice shot! I hope his picture turned out well too.

Yes, I like this shot of a fellow photographer, even if he was in a bit troubling state.

I have trouble enough shooting inside with a tripod. I don't even want to imagine the difficulty he must be having in the cold.

It's hard to do that type of work in the cold, at least to me. I have a very hard time getting my hands to work in the cold.

Caught in the act. Great fun. Glad you didn't disturb him. He might have dropped his large format camera in the snow and you'd have to leave in a big hurry! ;-)

That's a brilliant photo!

Hope he got the photo he had envisioned when he set up his camera. I've always admired photographers who carry large cameras and tripods, but I've never been one of them.

That's a good vantage point for the city.

Congratulations on climbing all those steps to get the picture!

I enjoy taking photos of other photographers. I'm thinking he appreciated not being disturbed here as all does not look well.

I love it, the classic shot of another shooter! (Bonus excitement from the precariousness of his position:)
