Mounties?

Where: Toronto, Canada

 

 

Toronto MarchOn a recent Sunday I was prepping for a video shoot in my Toronto hotel room. I was trying to concentrate but kept hearing annoying noises with an odd Doppler Effect.

 

 

My room had a small balcony and when I looked down I saw a long parade. I couldn’t tell if it was a parade of law enforcement people representing the Provinces of Canada or fire departments from the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) but it didn’t matter, as the uniforms, motion and geometry had the potential for some interesting images.

 

 

I angled my camera horizontal vs composing for a more natural vertical. This created more impact and an interesting sense of confusion that reminded me of something from a Woody Allen movie or an Escher drawing. I could have easily cloned out the sewer cover but it helped give a sense of place and dimension.
