What am I nostalgic for?
I was in the big city of Toronto recently. I used to live there in my early twenties — when all things were still possible and the days and nights were long and full of fun, friends and intellectual and cultural stimulation. Art house movies, live music, plays, eating out, exploring and discovering…
I spent a lot of time on the subway in those days, roaming the city. I loved it. I still love the subway, and its speed. I love observing people, listening to their conversations, and chatting with them from time to time. I love letting my imagination run wild.
I had the strong urge to make pictures in the subway on this visit, lo these many years later. When I saw how this image turned out, it grabbed me. It reminded me of me — and captured so well how I felt in those days — and how I remember those days now.
