Winter is probably my favourite season to make images in Toronto. Especially on the street. People are typically too cold to pay attention to what you’re doing so their focus is elsewhere. That’s how I was able to get this shot. As he got to the top of the stairs, I snapped another shot. That one is as good as this one, except he makes eye contact with me and I smiled at him. 

Usually if you smile it puts people more at ease and they’re less likely to attack you…
