A collage of some of my couch photos that I worked on with the Nik silver efex plugin.
I have started another blog posted my daily thrown out couch (that I find on my way to and from work, or at lunch)

Just got back from a six day vacation in Florida. My next blog posts will be about it. As you can see we had a little rain while we were there.
One of the interesting things I heard about travel photography is that everyone thinks the same thing - "where I live is the most boring place to take photos". So, they take them when they are away - I am no exception - but I attribute it more to having the time and being in a mood to explore, than it actually being more interesting. Then again dirty snow is hardly inspiring.
I just found this accidental video from when I started taking my photos of couches. That first year I used five cameras of which two had broken displays. People ask me how long I take to compose etc; it is all here, as when I turned on the camera I was actually starting to record a video and the photo I took was actually turning off the camera!
Was in Toronto last weekend - It always seems easier to photograph away from home; which is the exact opposite of what it should be, as one should take photos of what they know better than what they don't.
But I guess also a Toronto couch is not that different from a Montreal couch; although this one seems quite neatly displayed.
