Snowy night on the Danforth


I shot this back on February 13th. I was out with friends and we had a good afternoon shooting in the snow, but the magic came once we got back to the east end at the end of the walk. We spent maybe an hour working the scene as the light changed. With shots like this it’s all about using the light and reflections, etc. and building the shot. I waited maybe 10 minutes for someone interesting to walk into this composition. The red coat worked well to complete the shot.

On a personal note: So I’ve been out of work for like six months now. I’ve enjoyed most of it but boy am I ready to go back. It’s difficult to find anything suitable, though, since my resume is remarkably eclectic. I owned a business for almost 20 years, edited a national trade magazine for 11 more, and for the past 7 I was an administrator at a big financial services firm. I’m finding I don’t really “fit” anywhere. I wish I could just retire now but it’s too early and I’d end up having to sell the house. Anyway, that’s probably more than you need to know, right? Wish me luck on my job search, I’ll need it.

    So colourful! I know this corner well. Danforth Ave. at Main St.

    Good luck with your job search. My longest stretch of unemployment lasted more than a year.
