Smoking in Front of Mural Commemorating a Disastrous Fire by 

When I was walking through Toronto, Ontario’s Little Italy recently, I came upon this group of young people chatting and smoking in front of a street mural. I thought that the young people (probably students) and the colourful mural would make an interesting composition, so I asked them if they would mind if I took a few pictures of them. As I was shooting, I looked more closely at the mural and realized that it was a memorial commemorating a disastrous fire in the city. Shot with my Nikon D90.

I’m a photographer living in Toronto, ON, Canada. I enjoy photographing the architecture, street life, plants and water fowl in my home city. I also love travel photography and capturing reflections on all possible reflective surfaces.
