Coloured messages

If you’re following me on Periscope, you would have seen this earlier today where I visited the Ontario’s Celebration Zone at harbourfront. It’s one of the main zones during the Pan Am Games and still is, even though the Pan Am Games has finished.

This great wall of tags is comprised of plastic tags with messages to the Pan American Games’ atheletes, written by fellow supporters. It’s a great way to support our local athletes, in addition to creating a colourful piece of artwork.

It also makes for a great photography backdrop, as you can see here. I love how there’s only one person here amongst the myriad of colours. It’s a fun place to photograph for sure no matter which angle you confront it from. A closeup angle will also produce some equally interesting results.

When you see unique things like this around you, don’t be shy and take lots of photos of it from different angles to get a feel for the subject matter. Typically if you include a person within the frame, it acts as a great reference to the subject, further adding interest to the photo.
