Winter Solstice Festival, Kensington Market, Toronto

Past me, silent, in the dark marched a surreal army of childhood dreams.

An apparent refugee from the 1940s. Beggar, Ponte Sisto.

Like a river of emotion from their dour faces the graffiti explodes across the wall.

Stone steps worn so thin they are disappearing, Ghetto, Roma.

Uncle Zio, Florence

A timeless moment flashed by me. 
Will she remember it at all?

Vanessa and Lara - best friend, Florence

Lovers and friends lock their hearts to the bridge railing

Cotton Shirt, Florence

The absolute stillness of the scene struck me - the river, the bridge, the girl, silence.

Fire on College Street, Toronto

Huge fire on College Street in the middle of the night and all I had was my cellphone camera.

Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto

It seems odd to see this young, overdressed, Muslim girl 
working in a gambling booth and the CNE

Megan - Caribana, Toronto

Somehow, Megan and her friend represent all the lost youth that ever there will be.

Caribana, Toronto

Style mavens at the Caribana Parade

Caribana, Toronto

It's hard work

Caribana, Toronto

Caught these two girls looking at pictures they'd just taken of themselves, the parade and their friends.

Caribana, Toronto

Gold dust

Caribana, Toronto

Waiting for the Parade to begin.

Before the Parade.

Caribana, Toronto

The mischievous little imp . . .

Adorned like Hindu goddesses, glittering, dangerous.

Transfixed on the iridescent blue lances of her eyes

Somehow, a very disarming contradiction 

Honesty, unabashed.

The style twins. . . beyond cool.

An angel. . . leaving

A she devil, alien, gyrating, in the opaque and soundless noise.

A magnificent undulating landscape of flesh

Caribana, Toronto

This young lady seems to be decorated with the symbol of the Trident of the Hindu God, Shiva.

Caribana, Toronto

Four women and a boy - hair and no hair.

Caribana, Toronto

Bizarre, almost circus-like tableau at the Caribana Parade

St. Jacob Waterloo Market

This little girl and a friend were playing with dolls under their father's fruit stand.

Apparently these old-order Mennonites can now carry cell phones.

Dyke March, Toronto

The hand on the chest really clinches it.

Dyke March, Toronto

Split Tongue - some serious body mods going on here.

Dyke March, Toronto

This mobile photographer was capturing all the action.
Great tats but why the shin gurards?

Dyke March, Toronto

The extreme body language of the cell phone user.
Great shoes.

Dyke March, Toronto

Body Mod Girl - her tongue is split in half and who knows what's out of sight.
