king biking || Canon5D2/Sigma12-24@12
This is actually a frame from a video clip I shot on King street using the Canon 5D Mark II and the wide zoom Sigma 12-24 Lens. This was shot before Canon released the Video Manual Exposure firmware. The wide lens make things look more dangerous (at least I'd like to think so!) as you can see in the video posted below. (If you can't see the video check the direct vimeo page for it here)

Sorry but I couldn’t resist another LOST reference, but at least this time it has OZ (not the HBO one!) attached to it.
Well this is actually an installation called Disco Fallout Shelter (DFS) by Instant Coffee artist collective at Toronto Sculpture Garden.
