Hi everyone!

I just finished preparing photos I took from the 2011 Canadian International Auto Show that happened here in Toronto, Canada. I originally had over 200 pictures but the final pictures only counted for about 70 pictures. It took me quite a long time to finish this task mainly because of university work that I had to work on at the same time. Well, the point is, that they are done and ready! The pictures are not in the website yet, I will upload them in the website sometime next week (Gotta do some uni work first :)) However, I also created a simple compilation of the pictures for YouTube and they are live! Check them out below! Hope you like them! =D
*** Note, a few pics were accidentally left out of this video slideshow. They will be uploaded in this website. ***
 
 
Hello All,

I just want to let everyone know that I uploaded a new set of photos in the website. Actually, I uploaded the photos about a week ago. I just didn't have time to make an announcement about it. Anyway, as promised, the new set of photos feature various buildings of the University of Toronto. It's pretty fun walking around campus after class or on days I don't have class and just click away with my camera =D. You can find the pictures here:

Buildings of UofT - A new set of photos featuring the buildings of the University of Toronto
Urban - A new photo is added here as well.

Hope you like them! Don't forget to hit me up with emails regarding questions, comments, and suggestions regarding my work. Until next time! Have fun taking pictures!

Cheers,
Angelo L. Maralit
 
 
Hi Everyone!

I can't believe it's been over 4 months since the last time I actually put something new in this site. It really can't be helped since I was busy doing a bunch of university work all semester long. Now, I've had a good break, I managed to edit my pictures and now they are posted and ready to be shown for you guys :). This time around I focused on the architecture of some of the buildings of my university (makes sense since I'm there pretty much 24/7 doing homeworks lol). I have one photoshoot dedicated for those pictures posted. These pictures can be found in:

Buildings of UofT - NEW SET OF PICTURES ADDED

Also, I added another new picture in the Urban section. you can see it here:

Urban - NEW PICTURE ADDED.

There you have it! After a long time in silence, I finally managed to post the pictures I've been meaning to show you guys for months now. Hope you guys enjoy my newest set of pictures =) and hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year celebration. Until next time! Always carry your camera and your imagination! 

Cheers,

Hi All,

Once again, I would like to apologize for yet another month-long silence in my photography website. In the past month, I've been very busy preparing for my summer course exam (Linear Algebra) in University and have been very busy working at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) which ran through September 6th. Now that all that is over, I'll update the website again by adding just a few more images before I get busy again for the Fall Session in University of Toronto. So yeah, that's basically why the site has been dormant in the past month. I will post a handful of fresh and, I believe, great looking photos as early as later tonight. So watch out for them =). For now though, please browse through my current collection of photos by going to the Galleries section or you can see what I posted last time by simply going to the What's New section. Hope you enjoy and keep liking my photos. Until the next update keep clicking that shutter! =D

Cheers,
Angelo Maralit

Today, May 24th, 2010, is Victoria Day here in Canada and the city of Toronto hosted a fireworks display in Ashbridge's Bay @ the Beaches as advertised in earlier posts. Well, the journey there was not easy at all.

My day started out eating sushi with friends for lunch on this very hot sunny day. Going out to a local mall to pass the time before proceeding to the fireworks location. I knew where the place is but what I didn't know was how far it was from the Downtown Core of Toronto.

The Park for the fireworks was located at Lakeshore Blvd and Coxwell St. which is on the eastern side of Toronto. We decided to walk the distance instead of taking the transit. Which is fun and tiring considering the scorching heat at the time. We them get to a junction with Lakeshore on the left and Cherry St. on the right. For some odd reason, my friends and I continued walking south on Cherry St. We kept walking for a few more kilometres before we realized that we went the wrong way! Then we had to walk all the way back but we we're lucky to get a bus ride back instead of walking the whole way. But because of that silly mistake, some of my friends got very exhausted and had to go straight home and miss the fireworks. By the time we got back to the junction our group of 9 dropped to 4!

The rest of us continue walking, the right way this time, along Lakeshore. We got to walk on abandoned rail tracks and bridges which was fun! But we had to walk about 4 more kilometres east. By then we decided to go on break. We passed the time in a place with square stones arranged in a circle, like in a camp. We then decided to fool around with the pillars of the unfinished bridge along Lakeshore. My friend, Denesh, decides to climb one pillar but as soon as he gets the boost from my other friend, Dan, we hear a loud siren and they dropped back down and acted like nothing happened. Their faces was priceless and wish had taken a picture of it. We continue on to the park after some refreshments at a local restaurant where we waited for the fireworks to begin.

The fireworks only lasted 13 minutes, but that was the best 13 minutes I've had all day! The fireworks display was just very well organized and the explosions on the sky are like sweet candies against the perfectly dark clear skies. So in a way, the "quest" throughout the day was worth it! Sure we probably killed our legs and ankles walking to the park but in the end, it was worth it, worth every step of the way. However, contrary to the epic fireworks, my attempt to photographically document the event was sort of a failure. Our of about 70 pictures I took, NONE of them are any good! Not even good enough to be put up in this website or any where online at all! It's a shame but I know that fireworks have always been my greatest problem in photography. No worries though, since in about a month, there's Canada Day (July 1st)! I'll try my luck again and this time, we're taking the car!
 
 
I can't believe I forgot all about this, but it's true! May is Photography Month in the U.S. and here in Canada as well! Many photography events are taking place here in Toronto, Canada. TVO is also showing 12 different documentaries regarding photography!

So this May, or what's left of it, look for interesting angles, perspectives, compositions, and most of all, capture lots of amazing photos. Let's celebrate the Photography Month! Check out my Galleries to see all my photos. Some of them are taken this month in response for the Photography Month.

Cheers,

It's that time of the year again. Let's not forget that on Monday May 24 will be Victoria Day. Each year, Toronto and Canada for that matter, celebrates Victoria day with many kinds of events. Perhaps the most spectacular is the fireworks display held on the Night of Victoria Day.

On May 24th at around 9:30PM, come down to the Beaches in Southeast Toronto to witness the amazing fireworks. The display is going to take place at the Ashbridges Bay (map below).  Yours truly, will personally be there to capture some photos of fireworks and of course enjoy it at the same time : )

Remember to go there early to get a good spot and of course enjoy the events happening around the area.
