a walk in the city

last weekend i went to a meeting in toronto.
i was there for 24 hours.

i was planning to stay longer,
but after 24 hours, i was very happy to be

on a bus headed north.

the visual stimulation was overwhelming
and the soundscape was very intense.
it felt like my brain was undergoing acupuncture
therapy by unhappy practitioners.

it struck me that i take pictures of environments
like this to simplify them to a level
my thoughts can process...
maybe even see beauty where my first reaction
is one of profound alienation.


up north, people on the street expect you to say hi.
there, the only people on the street i talked to
were people who live there.


i think it's why i like to see street art so much.


it makes the city seem less lonely.
