Honest Ed's Photo Walk

Published July 29th, 2012

My friend Debbie and I did a photo walk through Honest Ed's last week. We got some froyo afterwards (necessary to recover from the sheer existential horror of all those amazing deals) and were joined by my wife for some nighttime shots of the outside of the building.



Honest Ed's markets itself as a "World-Famous Bargain Centre", though I hadn't heard of it prior to Toronto. I live a few blocks away from the store. It's been a part of Toronto for over sixty years, and the late owners were very philanthropic to the city.

I'm still not completely sure I'm picking up what this sign is laying down.

Rage against that machine, Green Day.

I think these were mints or something.

'Relax'

Honest Ed's is thoughtful enough to provide benches on which you can rest from all the exhaustion of all their amazing deals.

PRIVATE

Found on a random landing. I can only guess at what's beyond it - perhaps some private Honest Ed's shopping area only open to high-spenders.

Couldn't resist this one, though I had a lot of problems with light reflections.

You can tell this watch is high-quality since it even keeps time when it's upside down.

Army

This looked to me like some kind of massive army of spray bottles, ready to spring into action.

I actually have been meaning to buy a new shoe-shine brush.

Played with out-of-focus lights for the first time. Anyone familiar with the area would recognize this, but I like the idea of something a little more abstract.

Could be a nice black and white.

Long Exposure afterwards. I need to get better at these.
