Welcome to Scene on Queen — my monthly single-photo feature capturing the teeming life and oddities on Queen Street West in Toronto.

I snap photos with my Nikon CoolPix point-and-shoot camera on my way home from work — all from the comfort of my MINI Cooper cabin.
Lightning quick and in-the-moment.
Street photography at its wildest and weirdest.
At Scene on Queen, typical photography ‘sins’ like blurriness and bad composition are forgiven in favor of the story behind the photo.
Twelve months. Twelve photos.
It’s all subjective, but know that in the split second just before I press the shutter, something clicks inside me — moves me to record it.
A strange pattern or reflection; juxtaposition or gentrification.
Ordinary people; extraordinary things.
When the street light turns green, the moment’s gone.

Below is the photo for June 2013…definitely one of the weirdest.
