Happy ST !

Denny Jump from Bellevue, WA, United States

Perhaps they don’t favour the brand?
Nevertheless, i agree with the title!
Live how you composed this ;-)

@Denny Jump: I prefer "Signed: Wonderful experienced soul with a crackling wit and good nature"... thanks, Denny!

Existence Artistique from Angers, France

bon travail

@Existence Artistique: Merci.

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

Maybe they could not wait for Black Friday ;-) Fortunately Younge Street was more quiet when I was in Toronto ! extreme scene you have captured here Rick !

@Anna Cherer: Ahhh, Yonge street is an abomination for the most part, but perhaps that is the typical "love-hate" feeling that a lot of Torontonians have. I much prefer King street east and west :-) Thanks for commenting, Anna!

Gérard from Allauch, France

Anyway, he does not need shoes for now !!!! Well seen !!!!

@Gérard: He probably injured his leg in ballet class.

Martine Libouton from Bousval, Belgium

Très bien vu ! j'aime ta photo !

Ehsan Hemmati from Kermanshah, Iran

@Ehsan Hemmati: City gritty. Thanks!

Phil Morris from Saskatoon, Toronto, NYC, Canada

Wonderful story, the low colour is utmost perfection !~

@Phil Morris: Thanks, Phil. The characters were colourful enough, I figured.

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

A smaShing Time but a lot of trouble to go to when they are probably not your size or even a pair,
although I guess juST the one will do for the guy in the wheelchair :)

21 Nov 2017 10:58am

@grouser: Hopefully he knew his shoe size. It is debatable.

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

Really extreme !
I don't know if it is happy or not.

21 Nov 2017 11:11am

@Hiro: Probably more like "Menacing ST", but "Happy ST" is a tradition with a better ring to it :-) - thanks, Hiro!

Mhelene from Villiers-sur-Marne, France

Superb capture in the street . Great composition and title .

@Mhelene: Thanks.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

This sure looks to be a street to avoid . .

21 Nov 2017 12:36pm

@Ronnie 2¢: An extremely long and congested street packed with every kind of retail, every kind of device-addicted-distracted citizen, not enough sidewalk width, barely any trees... for the sake of brevity I will end the list here and agree with you!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautiful tones captured in this composition!! The cracked patterns in the windows stand out nicely here. Your title fits this so well.

@Steven: During the 2010 G20 in Toronto, vandals ran wild on some downtown streets. It gave me a rather sickening photo opportunity as I walked home from protests. Thanks for the feedback!

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

I like the desaturation. The gritty feel is exceptional. Fabulous work!

21 Nov 2017 2:45pm

@Ruthiebear: I like taking the colour back a few notches sometimes, when it seems to suit the subject matter. Thanks very much, Ruthie.

Devi from Chennai, India

Looks like the work of EXTREMISTS !!! I might stay clear of this shop !!
What a terrible SorT of thing !!!!

@Devi: Well said!

Don from Spokane, United States

An interesting street picture of some folks conrtemplating the broken windows and what is means. A successful street shot.

21 Nov 2017 4:21pm

@Don: I appreciate that, Don, thanks.
