CNE 2013 Treats: Toronto Food Photography

I’m one of ten official CNE bloggers, this is my second blog post about the CNE this year. This one is all about the yummy treats and food you can find there.

I couldn’t believe that my sister had never had the pleasure of a Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich! So delicious! And not that unhealthy. 🙂

CNE 2013: Toronto Photography

I’m one of ten official CNE Bloggers this year, which means multiple trips to the CNE, and fun photographic possibilities.

Summer is fast coming to a close, so any excuse to be outside enjoying a balmy summer evening is wonderful. I’ve been timing my visits for the afternoon/evening for the best light for photography. In this blog post I’ll be sharing images from the various rides at the CNE.

This one is a fave. I wished I’d had a longer focal length, as I had to crop it a little, but just love this shot with the setting sun in the corner, and the people silhouetted as they await their turn on the Zip Line, a new ride this year at the CNE:

The Canadian flags against a sky of blue, the Ring of Fire ride:

I’m not sure of the name of this ride…swinging people against a sky of blue:
