In Honour of Nowruz (the Persian New Year) I present you this video ..
By the group Rastak, called Sornaye Norouz – It is Traditional music that is played at the moment of Spring, to signify the start of the new year.. But this group has an interesting twist, with incorporation of the the various regional dialects and instruments.

Let the Festivities Begin….

Sporadic Posts

Well, Not much to say,
I’ve been really busy with life & What not, so photography has taken a back seat.

But spring is arriving, and I’ve had a lot of pictures worth showing off.
Expect a good few posts in the coming weeks:

  • Elgin and Winter Garden Theaters.
  • Toronto Downtown Fun with a Fisheye lens.
  • 21 Walls Art show pictures.
  • Rouge Valley in the Fall.
  • Macro-Lens Fun.
  • Night Photography.
  • Addition of photo streams.

Duomo di Firenze

Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore
The first “Hail Mary” picture I took with my father’s Nikon Coolpix 4500 was this one, and appropriately, it’s the ceiling of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore
I was reaching stretched out with only one chance to get this shot.. and Didn’t turn out so bad.  It was also taken 10 years ago.
Using the Standard 7.85-32mm (38-155mm equivalent) Lens
Zoomed at 7.85mm (38mm equivalent) with f/2.6 1/6s ISO 100
Picture of the Cieling of Basilica Di Santa maria del Fiore
Unfortunately, few other pictures of the Basilica turned out well enough to present.
