I am a photographer living in Nanaimo. I did not seriously take up photography until a few years after our 2015 move from Toronto. The beauty and variety of the landscape and animal life of Vancouver Island are what initially piqued my interest, and while I enjoy all themes my passion is street photography. New York City is the ultimate street photographer’s dream and I visit there as often as I can. Photo taken September 14 2019 in Lower Manhattan. While there are a lot of homeless people on the streets of New York, the juxtaposition of the marble colonnade of one of the premier addresses in the world and of how forlorn the man seems, was especially jarring to me.
