Kensington Market By The Hip

DSC05268 copyIt was like mid-spring today, and probably last of good weather before those dreary, cloudy Canadian winters kick in. I jumped at the chance to go downtown today and walked around for about 4 hours. I brought my Sony point-and-shoot and practiced some “shooting from the hip”, a discreet street photography technique to take pictures of people/things without others knowing about it.

DSC05258 copyI covered Kensington Market and Chinatown, mainly because I needed to get one of those rolling cart things that people without cars use to push heavy groceries across town in. I found a decent one at $8.99. The one I currently use, a $60 cooler-cart from Canadian Tire was a piece of (for lack of better word) shit. It tripped me, tipped over at every crack in the road, and could barely fit in 3 boxes of frozen chicken. Just proof that sometimes the “brand name” stuff isn’t worth anything.
