Dress Up

Happy Canada day everyone! As much as I’d love to do a big red shoot with hockey and maple leaves all over the place, I’m going to stick to my regular pink programming if that’s alright with you…

There are very few good pastel photo walls in this city, and perhaps that’s part of the reason why so much of the photography I see coming out of Toronto is very monochromatic and minimal (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) It’s tough to find the bright and cheery in a place with so much marble, concrete, and grey, and I often think I’d be much better off living in Miama or L.A. where every second building is a fun colour. But for now at least, I’m not one to give up on finding the colour in my life that easily!

Anabela of Fieldguided introduced me to this wall while we were out on a photo shoot adventure, and it immediately became one of my new favourite spots to take photos. In real life, it’s a pretty massive, somewhat grimy car mechanic shop, but in photos it transforms into a hot pink haze that I just can’t get enough of. Here’s to the first of many hot pink wall photo shoots!
