Balcony Bicycle Paparazzo – Gananoque Photographer in the Big City
“The Village” Church and Wellington- Toronto- a wonderful, colourful neighbourhood with many sights. I was there for a photography workshop, and one day decided to take my camera out onto my 4th floor balcony to see what I could see. I wasn’t sure what exactly I was looking for, but I waited until inspiration struck. It came in the form of a cyclist wearing a rice paddy hat with balloons trailing behind a bicycle that seemed to be overflowing with accoutrements…
How wondrous! How joyful! How fun! I wonder about this person- A clown maybe???
And so it began….watching, waiting… snapping pictures secretly from above as bicycles passed by. I wondered; how much could I tell about people from their bicycles, their unique styles and the things they carried…. In the wild internet world, I think it would be funny if someone recognized him or herself on this blog….
also really cool retro shoes
No really- I’m having flashbacks of 1986….
I can find my pictures from grade 8 and tell you why fluorescent is so wrong!!!(shuddering at the memories of fashion pain…really, I will elaborate if I can just find that image)
I bet she’s listening to really awesome music too… I’d love to know what’s on her playlist.
Perhaps the man with the extra hat can share his with this other man in need…
Now she looks like someone I would LOVE… creative, fun, free-spirited, not afraid to stand out in a crowd… every colour of the rainbow and a rainbow on her backpack. A musician or an artist maybe?? YOU ARE MY HERO colourful bicycle woman!
I think I can even see the drool…
