Kilt Call; Fifth & Rosser

kilt call

I swear the phone call theme running through the past few posts have been completely unintentional; they were chosen from random contact sheets over the past few years. Over the slow, deadened winter months when there’s not much life to shoot on the streets, I’ve been going over negatives from the past, when I can look at them with fresh objective eyes. Despite me thinking I keep a close eye on my images, there’s a lot that I missed over the past 7 or so years of making these pictures.

Sunset On Rosser Avenue

1228

 

I don’t get caught up in “film vs. digital” nonsense (it’s almost embarrassing in 2015), but I have to say in moments like these there’s nothing like black and white film — endless, rich blacks.

Playing on 11th Street

11street

This section of Eleventh Street, near Lorne Avenue, is one I find myself returning to again and again. Its row housing offer low rents that have brought a stream of new immigrants, from Chinese to Latino, in addition to some heritage homes owned by long time residents.

It’s an interesting mix but what makes it great for street photography is the new immigrants’ idea of family — kids play outside, rather than sit zombified by video games and cell phones indoors. The result is a neighbourhood alive with the sounds of children playing. That shouldn’t be rare but it increasingly is, unfortunately. There’s just no way to make an interesting photograph of a kid slack-jawed over an iPhone.
