Photographer's Note

Our family visited some friends in Peterborough, Ontario, which is a smaller city about an hour's drive north of Toronto. While in the town, we could not resist a visit down Stewart Street, and the house where my husband, John, lived part of his childhood. Most of the homes near the center of Peterborough are built in a similar style to this, but unlike the modern subdivisions, each house was built to be noticably different from its neighbours.

I liked the "old" (1960's-1970's) feel to the neighbourhood, with it's skinny houses, gravel driveways, and high wires for electricity and phone. That's why I turned this one into black and white. (Sepia would have been a little too old for the era that my husband grew up in. - grin) I thought the perspective distortion worked well for an older photo too. Pity about that little car on the right.

Comments and critiques always welcome.
