The Dears

Often my photo subjects are busy, important people. As much as I'm sure they'd like to get to know me, they usually have a meeting they have to be to or another journalist to meet with, so I can't really blame them for rushing off.

Still, sometimes I wish they could sit and chat, even for a few seconds, just so I would know that they acknowledged me as a human and not just another thing to check off their "List of Things To Do" for the day.

The Dears were in a rush - no more than 15 minutes for a shoot after they finished an interview at CBC - but they were actually really nice and even managed to ask a few genuine questions about my life.

It's nice to feel like you're a person, not just a camera, so a big thank you to the Dears.
