This photo was taken in late July 2011 in an alley way in downtown Montreal. It portrays the carefree life of adolescence as well as the historical part of Montreal’s industrial area. The long alley way of older buildings finally leading to out of focus skyscrapers symbolizes the life of a teenager: the future is out of focus and hazy, but still attainable. While we dwell in the past and hold on to our childhood, somehow we continue to walk forward into our future. The two girls in this photo symbolize
friendship and companionship, because where present, past, or future no one wants to be alone in their endeavors.
