One of the answers to the cold, damp grey days of March in Toronto—if you can’t fight it then just photograph it. I walked through the neighbourhood with my camera one day in March and found it absorbing—textures and colours (yes even in winter) seemed even more pronounced with the melting snow and rain everywhere.
I was particularly taken with the pools of water near the sidewalks and the reflections that could be seen. Compositionally I tried to keep it interesting and found when the sun came through the clouds it an atmospheric effect was created that had to be captured. I even got excited when cars drove through the water and I tried to capture the rippled effect. Amazing what a little psychological intervention can do to make a normally dull, depressing day in March prove uplifting.
