This is one of those moments where you’re just casually strolling along something catches your eye. You notice something. Something in the back of your mind picks up on the fact that the colors of that cab match the colors of this ugly old building. You have about 3 seconds to set your settings and compose your image.
In this case I was trying to line up the vehicle perfectly in the center of the building whilst maintaining a little motion blur. I failed to line it up perfectly because the driver was going much faster than I thought.
I should have expected this because cab drivers in Toronto drive like dicks. I still like the image however imperfect. I always try to make each photo as good as it can be. Over time this strategy actually works well because when you stop trying for perfection and aim for good eventually you get a few winners. Perfection is illusive.
I shot this in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on March 29th, 2014.
