A City Unseen

On a recent trip to southern Ontario, I had an hour-long stopover in downtown Toronto, so I decided to walk around and shoot a roll of black & white film. Even among the bustle of a major metropolitan center, I found myself drawn away from the crowds toward the quiet, unseen corners of the city. It served to reinforce the fact that I don't think I could ever be a journalistic or portrait photographer. I very much prefer to photograph solitude.

Photo details:

Camera: Nikon F50
Shutter Speed: Automatic
Aperture: Automatic
Film Speed: 400 ASA
Date Picture Taken: January 26, 2006

Scanned from 4x6" print (hence the diagonal lines across the photo from the print stock), processed in Photoshop.

This picture is so freaking amazing! I just love the amount of depth and angle it has. And the face makes me laugh. ^__^

Also, I have a question, would you mind if I[we] used this as a stock photo for a group project icon?
I saw this and was instantly in love. XD

Awesome!! Alright, we turned into a icon for this group here; [link]

But I reuploaded it here so you could see what happened to it since it's hard to see. [link]

Thank you lots!

That's pretty colourful for a B&W film. ;) But I like the shot a lot.

And I'm with you on photographing in solitude, away from main arteries, or just on the side. Quiet corners are just so much more friendly than people when you put a lens in their faces. :boing:
