I am now shooting with a combination SLR and Ipad - the SLR is in my computer bag so I use it while biking to and from work, the Ipad I carry on my lunch time walks

Sherbrooke and Patricia NE

going home - Tuesday September 11
My camera bit the dust after I took this photo- I don't usually get much more than one year from my point and shoots - I was luckier with this one as it broke last year just before Christmas and it was still under warranty so I got an extra nine months!

Randall and Chester NW

going to work - Tuesday September 11
was so pre-occupied on the previous photo that I almost missed this one (I had actually passed it without seeing it)

MacMahon and Fielding NW

going to work - Monday September 10
Sometimes when I have three at one location I try to get more than one photo, but not today.
I wasn't sure if I had been beaten to all the couches by the garbage trucks this morning, as I was only going to work in the afternoon (flew in from Toronto), but as you see this wasn't this case.

Ponsard and Decarie SE

Trying to put the couches onto the map in Lightroom

Have set a deadline of the end of the year to find the locations of all my couches and put on the lightroom maps. I have about 1200 couches and many could have been taken multiple days etc. At the moment I have 1,800 pictures to go (probably 300 or so distinct couches - but these are the harder ones - will keep you posted)

Hamilton Ontario

Spent the weekend in Ancaster, on the shuttle bus from the city airport to the GO train I saw a couch, but didn't have my camera handy. The next day we went to the Hamilton market and on the way home we passed this one
