• A Birthday Venture to the Islands

    June 13, 2018 Kate

    The Toronto Islands, that is. Somehow I’ve lived here for how many years and never made my way over?? We started at Hanlan’s Point and walked our way right around to Ward’s Island, where we capped the day off with sangria, chorizo nachos, and apple rhubarb pie (voted best combo by one Kate Smalley) at…

  • A Day in Prince Edward County

    June 11, 2018 Kate

    In which I found plenty of fields, open water, falling down and/or abandon homes, and old things. Not to mention the most aptly named antique shop. And the best license plate known to man. It’s lovely out there. 10/10 you should go. (Not pictured: coffee and an incredible gluten free coconut raspberry something-or-other from Enid Grace…

  • Downtown Las Vegas is My Kind of Vegas

    March 13, 2018 Kate

    Remember that time I went to Las Vegas and then approximately two months later recovered my Lightroom catalog and got around to processing and uploading the photos? Ya… If you ever find yourself in Las Vegas, do yourself a solid and check out the Downtown. It’s a whole other world unto itself and totally movie…

  • On Sundays We Walk

    January 16, 2018 Kate

    A (chilly) Sunday stroll along the Humber Trail near the McMichael Art Gallery in Kleinburg. Here’s a question… why do my photos look overcast or just generally bleh? I always seem to have trouble shooting landscapes that aren’t super vibrant/colourful (so, winter landscapes). Not sure if it’s a camera settings thing or a Lightroom editing…

  • From Dumbo to Manhattan

    December 14, 2017 Kate

    A morning spent in Dumbo, Brooklyn, and a walk across the Manhattan Bridge for my last day in New York City. That’s right, a whole month later, I’ve finally gotten through editing all my trip photos. Some I’m really happy with, most I’m not, and that’s OK. The point was to get out with my…

  • Reclaiming My Time

    December 13, 2017 Kate

    Feeling nostalgic for those slow travel days in Brooklyn. For the aimless wandering and the continuous discovery of new. A reminder to reclaim your time, because no one will do it for you.

  • Fabric and Art, Books and Coffee (Another Day in Manhattan)

    December 1, 2017 Kate

    A day spent wandering through the Garment District and Chelsea in Manhattan. There was fabric and art, and books and coffee. And I was happy. Also, I always find the signs of income inequality in big cities interesting… That last photo was taken in Chelsea…

  • A Day of Art and Architecture in Manhattan

    November 23, 2017 Kate

    Snaps from a day of art, architecture, and a particularly notable lemon meringue tart in Manhattan. I was at the Smithsonian primarily to see the building itself (are you seeing those details?!) and The Metropolitan to see the Leonardo to Matisse drawing exhibit. I was in that one room of the Smithsonian taking photos of the floors/walls/pipes/ceiling/trim…

    November 20, 2017 Kate

    Well, well. Looks who’s finally getting around to editing her New York City trip photos. It’s-a-me.  Taken on a stroll around Williamsburg, Brooklyn on October 30, 2017. SaveSave

  • Adventures in Coffee (Because, What Else)

    November 16, 2017 Kate

    Photo evidence from a particularly wonderous stroll along Dundas West in Toronto last week. In which lots of coffee was drunk and many a dream was dreamed. (Studio/retail/event/??? space. That’s the dream.) Also, overheard at Balfour Books… “Oh, here it is, poetry to slit your wrists to. Someone was asking for this.” I love this city.…
