In my opinion, this is one of the best of Notman's photographs selected for the project - balanced, elegant and moody. It was taken from the balcony of a building that no longer stands, so I was forced to take mine from the balcony of the Pointe-à-Callière Museum, which has since been built on the same spot. Ideally I would have liked to set my camera lower and further to the left, but this was impossible. Nonetheless, the light in the two photographs is exactly the same, and they both capture people going about their daily business.
