I shot this while riding the streetcar through downtown Toronto on my way to work. I always try to have a "proper" camera on me, whether film or digital, besides what I've got on my phone. The reason I do that is specifically for moments like this: complete random chance of capturing a moment never to be repeated.
The streetcar was stopped at a red light. I was sitting in a seat next to a window. I happened to look out and down to my right and saw this colourful character pull up beside the streetcar on his bright red Ducati motorcycle. The depth of the colour in both his motorcycle and his helmet immediately caught my eye.
I scrambled quickly to get my point-and-shoot film camera buried in my bag. I could see the light was about to change and I had maybe five seconds to get the shot. I managed to get my camera out, turn it on (no small feat with an older film camera) and shoot two frames just before the light went green and the motorcycle rode off out of sight.
When I got the film back, the shots were basically exactly how I remembered that moment in front of me. A nice reminder to myself to always double check I have a camera on me when I leave my house, even if I don't think I'm going to see anything special.
