Welcome to Scene on Queen — a new monthly blog feature capturing the “teeming life and oddities” on Queen St. West in Toronto.
I take the 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.
When the street light turns green, the moment’s gone.
For the full modus operandi and other cool Toronto street pics,
