Street Photography

Science North, Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.

The concept for the design of Science North was to create a building that looked like a snowflake perched atop a rock crater.

 The snowflake was chosen because it’s symbolic of the glaciation that sculpted Canada’s northern landscape. A snowflake is also a crystal, the basic component of so many natural minerals. The rock crater is symbolic of the Sudbury Basin, which is the second largest known meteor impact crater on earth.

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”

My favorite restaurant patio (Lieutenant’s Pump) in Ottawa, Ontario. Love watching people.

 

Street person in Ottawa that riveted my attention. Person on cell phone totally oblivious to what I noticed. In a land of plenty, there are hidden secrets. 

“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph.”

    Some people end up invisible to most, like the street person. This is nice that you included him.
