Your Visits Are Getting Shorter

Been going back and listening to some of my all time favourites from The xx, stars, metric, broken social scene and Bloc Party. My favourite album from them is Silent Alarm with the best tracks being So Here We Are // Blue Light. I can always listen to those tracks :)

 

Taken on my stroll with Eric through the yorkville/bloor area. We were on the other side of the street when I spotted a couple walking down this lovely laneway (is that what you call these? xD) and I'm 1) A sucker for anything symmetrical 2) A sucker for any sort of lanyway/alley.

 

Naturally I bolted to the road and waited for a break in the traffic (which didn't happen for a while >.<) set my settings, pulled the dark slide out and focus to infinity while I was hopping around waiting and as soon as there was a gap I sprinted across the road, got my composition quickly and pressed the shutter release with a reassuring clunk :)

 

Sadly, by then the couple was quite far down the alley, but I'm still happy with it and I'm sure anyone who saw me was like this kid's a maniac running across the street with an antique looking thing in his hand...but as a fellow photographer, Eric shrugged it off and said he saw what I was trying to shoot as soon as I bolted hahaha

 

Always fun having stories behind your shots :)

 

No bokeh wednesday for me :( Was out shooting video late tonight...my tummy is grumbling and the butter chicken is wafting up the stairs calling me but I had to finish this first :P
