Portra at the (Business) park

One place that I’d been meaning to photograph for a while, but hadn’t had the chance to visit until recently, was the burnside business park in Dartmouth, NS. Every time I drove through it I couldn’t help but notice how distinctly plain it felt, and I really wanted to capture that mundane-ness in an interesting way. I finally decided to spend a couple hours there at the beginning of September, on Labour day. The fact that I went on a holiday meant that there was almost nobody else there, so I really got to take my time taking the photos that I wanted to. Admittedly, it would be interesting to go on a day when people are there, but I’m not sure how I feel about wandering around businesses filled with folks just trying to do their jobs on a weekday. Maybe I’ll leave that to a bolder photographer.
