As many of you know, I like to do a lot of street photography around Toronto. To this point, my street shots have candidly documented life and architecture around the city, but I have often wanted to stop a complete stranger and take his or her portrait. Someone with an interesting look, or some other unique aspect. Then it happened…
I was out shooting during my lunch break earlier this week and stumbled upon an interesting looking pay phone. You don’t see many of these around anymore. Suddenly, there was a tap on my shoulder, and a guy popped around from behind me and said, “hey, take my picture with that.”
Bingo! My first street portrait just fell into my lap.
Meet Kobi, he is a jewelry designer who makes really cool rings that have gears and gadgets from inside watches. We chatted for a few minutes, he was interesting and pretty cool.
Thanks Kobi for being my first street portrait.
