When it comes to capturing the mood of city, sunset and streetlights are a good combination. This photo was taken over thirty years ago near where I lived in Toronto’s west end, in an area is known as The Junction. It was a bit run down at the time but had a lot of character and I enjoyed living there. With this photo I wanted to create a mood with colour and light and try to convey my warm feelings for The Junction.

Photo tip: For night shooting a tripod is useful but not essential. I find the best time to shoot is just after sundown as there is a good balance between natural light and city light.
