Photographer's Note

Taken at Transit Camp, where over 100 Torontonians gathered to discuss what they would do to improve the way the TTC (our transit system) market's itself. If you don't have an opinion of what's wrong with the TTC then ya probably ain't from here. Just check out their website for one example [].

It was held in what seemed like an unheated room in the Gladstone Hotel on Queen St W on what was probably the coldest day of the winter so far. Many participants, including the soundman looking curiously at some guy with a camera, kept bundled up.

The content and ideas generated in this open unconference will be delivered to the TTC for their consideration in their work.

I thought of cropping out the door to the left and the white string above him, but decided that I liked the balance other elements provide.

This image was taken with a Nikon D70 (a loaner). My 20D is a mess after shooting for 6 hours during a cold night in and out of a van (shooting a story on the street help outreach vans that feed and cloth homeless). It turns on, but I can't change the ISO, Metering, or activate the display--so can't access the menu.

Needless to say, I am not pleased.
