“Quiet Toronto” always appeals to me. I’m so used to seeing too many people around me all of the time in every place when I’m downtown. Capturing instances of minimal action is enjoyable.
My coworker and friend has moved into a new place downtown, and some of us got together to brunch up the place. It has a gorgeous view looking north out at the city, and you can even see my old apartment at High Park (Of course, it is minuscule).
After a delightful little hangout, I went on the balcony to get a picture before saying our goodbyes. I was looking around for something notable, and saw that there was one lone cab coming down Richmond street, so I positioned for it and took a shot as it went by. I’m not sure if I would have preferred a faster shutter speed to freeze it entirely, or the bit of blur to depict motion that I ended up with. I only got this one though, so at least I don’t have to fuss over making a choice.
This was captured using my 24-70mm lens, shooting at 1/80 and f4, with an ISO of 100.
