I live in an area of the city that is a mix of the old and the new. Although it’s the downtown, when you veer off the main roads you’re in little neighbourhoods with an older feel. On this particular day I set out to take some cityscapes, something I haven’t done much of. My focus was on brick and glass, the play of light, patterns and shadow. I was working in that vein and then came upon the scene captured in these photographs; an old house with a tiny lawn and wrought iron fence that abutted the sidewalk. Room enough for this sparrow and a morning glory.
