One of the distinctive features of Monteverde (now much imitated) is a bridge over a deep valley which allows visitors to walk by trees at the canopy level, seeing the plants that would normally be far above our heads.

In the Window, Schwartz’ Deli, Montréal, Quebec, 2011
Meat sits on display in the window of Schwartz’ Montreal Hebrew Delicatessen, on Boulevard Saint-Laurent, in Montréal. I have tried to give this a more filmic quality in processing, by adding grain, reducing saturation, increasing vibrancy, and toning it to increase blues in shadows and yellows in highlights. A different direction for me, but I am mostly pleased with the results.
