Chicken Kabobs on the Danforth

An experimental shot in street photography, this was taken in the Greek section of Danforth Avenue in Toronto, (known simply as the Danforth.) The road was named for American contractor Asa Danforth Jr., who built Queen Street and Kingston Road, and started work in 1799. It was officially built by The Don and Danforth Plank Road Company in 1851 to Broadview Avenue, as well as connecting to Queen Street East and Kingston Road.

A food and culture festival known as "A Taste of the Danforth" is held every August and attracts over 1 million visitors.

This cook agreed, through our hand signals, to be in this image. The window was quite food-stained but the kabobs were sizzling.


3-shot, handheld HDR, processed in PS CS3, Photomatix Pro 4.1 and some contrast work in Topaz Details 2.
