Rain and the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) wasn’t going to stop week 37 as I went into the city to run some errands. I soon found myself in the middle of massive crowds. So I turned my camera onto the people waiting in line. Until of course one of the volunteers for TIFF asked me “Why are you taking a picture of me with all these celebrities around?” “Real People are more interesting.” that gave her a good chuckle. Unlike many other street photographers I enjoy engaging my subjects, trying to catch a smile, or a notice of my lens trained on them, often I’ll get more looks for contempt or a ‘what are you doing’ shooting my way, but I press the shutter anyways and tempt fate. Most people in the end really don’t mind.
