Helen Jane from 365project.org challenged me to capture a moment that is special to me.
The Plateau's Mile End district is known as Montreal's creatives cultural hub. A photographer's haven for capturing people, architecture, murals, vibrant colours, etc. This building has been abandoned since 2010. It has had many graffiti makeovers since then. I make a point to photograph it every year. I'm sure one of these days it will disappear. Across the street is a local Depanneur/convenience store. When I got out to photograph the building, the lady in the image went into the store. I waited around for a person, and lucky enough, she came out with her purchases in hand. Not to be obvious and to respect her privacy, I waited until I couldn't see her face to take the photo. Treated in black and white for a Henri Cartier-Bresson effect. The shot is special only becauseI've been taking a shot every year since 2015.re to edit.
Taking a photo a day is a huge undertaking and challenging. I will try and document my life via my photos. January 3, 2020 is my first day of my 365 day Photo Challenge. I'm also posting on 365project.org enjoying photo challenges from a great group of photographers.
