#PlusOneCollection2012 http://plusonecollection.com/Spadina Avenue
2012 was a very important year in the development of my own tastes in photography. I spend a great deal of time taking photographs at night on a street in Toronto called Spadina Avenue. I felt it was only appropriate that I put forth this submission for the 2012 edition of the wonderful photo book project we have here on G+. I spent the coldest months of the Canadian winter in 2012 walking around the same few city blocks. Spadina was my go-to place.
The shadows, light, contrast, and general atmosphere that I felt on this street and the surrounding neighborhoods was something really unique. I am someone who constantly over-analyzes the minutiae of life. I found that my night photography on Spadina was the first thing that really helped me clear my mind and feel a certain peace that I didn't really know before. It was calming, therapeutic, and more than anything else, meaningful
Many of you don't know it, but your streams are constant source of visual inspiration to me. As I am currently finishing the last few weeks of my university degree, I don't have as much time to shoot as I would like. I can promise you all that you will see me back in full swing once I'm done getting that little piece of paper!
Finally, I'd like to mention that I was lucky enough to make it into the first edition, and as this place has exploded with talented photographers, I know that the competition is even higher this year. I have grown to know so many of you on Google+, and simply cannot wait to see your photos again in my hands this year.You are all awesome!
