//window seat at Tequila Bookworm on Queen West. Holga 120GN avec Polaroid back.

Spent the evening on Queen, eating, walking, snapping Holgaroid images and running into so many familiar faces. The most bizarre was one of the first: when sitting at East and despite a near-empty upper floor, having an ex colleague (who doesn't recognize me anymore) suddenly seated directly beside me. I could barely converse with Steph from that point.

By the end of the night (and many botched Polaroids later) we wound up at Tequila Bookworm where I took the above 2 photos. One, a few minutes after we arrived and the other hours later before heading out. Managed to angle the camera almost exactly -- a testament to many coffees and not tequilas had. The idea was to capture the present (in both a sense of time and of physical space).
