A Modes of Flight Street Photography Project
Looks a bit awesome detrimental. My favorite phenomenon is mist.
It never ceases to amaze me how the ordinary can appear so extraordinary when photographing under foggy or misty conditions. You see a whole new world every time.
I do’t like fog except in photos, and here it works wonderfully!
Thank you, Paula.
Thank you, Patti. It’s one of those shots that kind of has an out in the country feel to it even though its in the biggest industrial centre of the city.
This is Biggar Avenue, named after a lawyer Sanford Dennis Biggar (1881-1920) who was Hamilton’s mayor from 1905 to 1906. He held office during a most violent Hamilton Street Railway (HSR – public transit) strike.
On the nights of November 23 and 24, 1906, Biggar wound up having to read the 1714 Riot Act of England, which was still observed by Canada in his day. It was one of the few times in the city’s history that the Act was read and enforced to restore public order.
This city’s reputation for toughness goes waaaay back!
