I hope the library is not a thing of the past. I have so many memories of walking to my neighbourhood library as a kid. * Learning the Dewey Decimal System * Having a librarian read a story to you and a handful of other children * Being shocked when they started renting cassette tapes, then MOVIES! * Taking a book home with you and not having to pay a dime...until it was overdue
The library was probably the first real membership you had as a kid. Getting that first library card was as good as a drivers license back then. This was long before the Internet and the library had all the answers. It has been years since I have stepped back into a library but the sights, smells and lack of sounds brought all the memories back.
While Starly and Ryan didn't meet in a library, it seemed somewhat fitting that such an old school location could celebrate such a comfortable, old school love.
We finished off the shoot at their condo, taking advantage of some amazing amenities. Can't wait to have these two in front of my lens again in a few short months.
Thanks for Toronto Public Library for their assistance with this location.
Hope you enjoy.
Shout out to my friend and brilliant photographer Tony Hoffer for the inspiration behind this next shot and for his permission to post.
