I see the golden light. The cold blue morning. The trees still and heavy with freshly fallen snow.

I was getting back in my car after taking photos of the giant MTL structure on rue Sainte Catherine when I saw it.

It’s just some random building on a side street – but that golden LIGHT! Those snowy trees!

I’ve already put the tripod away. My hands are cold. The car is warm. My feet are wet. The camera is in the car.

I stand there for a moment, deliberating. Then I get out the camera, set up the tripod, take just one photo – this one – and got back in the car and drove away.

Sometimes you’ve just got to follow your gut.
