The photo challenge over at Moody Monday this week is "alone". Last week I had some alone time as I travelled by subway up to the north end of Toronto to attend a meeting, then returned home also using public transit. I had the foresight to bring my camera along and was happy I did, as I encountered many photographic opportunities that were not typical for me. My style of urban photography involves architecture, signs, streetscapes. People don't often appear in my photos; I don't stalk the streets looking for interesting individuals. But I do keep my eyes open when I'm out-and-about -- subway trains and subway stations naturally have many people and not all of them are boring. Among the people I noticed, the elderly lady you see here. Hunched and walking with a cane, she travelled slowly but managed her transit travels all by herself.
