So why go back and revisit photos that are getting close to four years old now, I have plenty of new good content to share. However there is something to be said for taking a look back at your photographic journey, and to see where, everything changed. For me, that change really took place here, in Montreal Quebec during my vacation there in 2010.
I think my muse finally woke up in Montreal, especially in old Montreal. And film started to come back to me in a big way. But not just medium, but stylistically I finally got what I was looking for in my photography. I wasn’t just taking snapshots with big cameras, I was thinking, composing, and building an image.
There was clear definition. Lines, perspective, detail.
So why Montreal? I don’t know, maybe because I just felt comfortable in the city, more so than any other big city I had visited to date. Or maybe something just clicked.
I also seemed to develop an obsession with photographing doors.
