Biking Kensington Market


As this lady rode by I began photographing her, panning my camera as she passed. She saw me and slowed to ensure I got a good shot, then stopped and posed. That’s the sort of thing you get when shooting at Kensington Market. People there sort of expect to be photographed. While not everyone likes it, most seem tolerant of the copious numbers of photographers who frequent this part of the city. There’s simply no getting away from it, so you might as well embrace it. Kensington Market is a magnet for street shooters, and if you ever visit Toronto be sure to check out the area on a Saturday or Sunday. It’s just a block west of Spadina, in Toronto’s Chinatown. Once I got this shot I nodded a thank you to her, and she rode off.
