How can you not be inspired living around this? My surroundings affect what I write, what I research and what I’m interested in. I just can’t say enough about how much the character of Parkdale has shaped this year – from the people and the old houses, to the shop signs and the rusty old garbage cans piled near the waterfront.
I went for a walk today and took a bunch of photos around this area of Toronto. I have been playing with my camera and what it can do. Some photos turn out better than others. I tend to spend more time on the photography part of this month than the actual writing. I almost feel like the photo tells a story on its own – that any explanation takes away the individual response to the image. It’s this individual response that makes art personally affect us.
