Here are a few pictures from the May 1st protest in downtown Toronto. You can view the whole set on Flickr.
Since I’ve been working so hard on adding images to my iStock portfolio, I want to start making weekly updates with my newly available images.
Lately I’ve been focusing mainly on the new editorial collection. I currently have 76 editorial files for sale on iStockPhoto, out of 658 total portfolio images. My goal for this year is to add 1000 new images to my portfolio.
I’ve added more from the G20 protests:
And some from a recent trip to the Dominican Republic:

Wow, what a day.
The G20 summit is being held in downtown Toronto this weekend. Today, there was a “peaceful demonstration” planned. Approximately 4,000 people would meet at Queen’s Park, walk down University to Queen Street, then head West on Queen to Spadina, and then back up Spadina to Queen’s Park.
You can view all 150 of my pictures from today on Flickr.
Something happened at Queen & Spadina that I did not see. People started running around yelling “TEAR GAS!” but I read online that it was smoke from a flare. After that, it got a little bit crazy. The protesters began heading back East along Queen Street instead of going up Spadina. Sometime in those 5 minutes, someone(s) smashed all of the windows of 2 police cars.
I went back home and started transferring pictures. A few minutes later, my boyfriend asked “did you hear that?!” We looked out the window and there was black smoke coming up from Queen Street. I grabbed my camera and went back outside. Someone had lit the police car on fire.
I watched from my balcony as cops were rushing protesters to push them North. Just around the corner, protesters were becoming increasingly violent. The whole thing was pretty scary and surreal.
Check out my Flickr set for more pictures from the G20 protests today.
A few hours ago, I went to the Tamil protest outside the US Consulate on University Avenue to take pictures. This is the fourth day of the Canadian Tamils’ protest against the civil war in Sri Lanka, which you can read more about on Wikipedia.
The full set of my pictures can be found on Flickr, as per usual.
