I took this picture from ground level at my 70-210mm lens fully extended with the "subjects" on the 2nd storey of a house, which explains the low angle.

A bit of sad news for film lovers like myself. Nikon Canada has announced that they've been quietly discontinuing most of their film cameras. While the death of film is imminent, I'm hoping that film will become to photography as what vinyl records are to recorded music. I look forward to at least a few more good years of film photography.

Just stumbled across your site. I like the concept of the manequins is this part of a set? Keep up the good work. I am also mourning the demise of film just been informed by my lab that they are discontinuing E6 processing ….sad day.

Jon, thanks for the comment. No, it's not part of a set. They're perched on top of a house in Kensington Market and I couldn't get too close to them so I only took the one shot. Oddly, I did find another mannequin sitting in someone's front yard across the street from this one. I'm not sure what it all means...
