Jet Fuel by Night

This is an image I shot a few months ago when I was borrowing a friend's tripod, at that time I was working on/thinking about a series of images about parliament street itself. The way in which the shops are changing and how alive the area is at night.

Later on I went for Pho out on Gerrard East and came across a renovation of chinese fruit stands which, due to the reno, old signs from the 40s like "Martha's Delicatessen" were now visible. I have shopped at this place for vegetables countless times without knowing that these old signs were hidden from view, or for boot repair or a Paint and Hardware store that boasted "Lead Paints"
