Same faucet, 13 months later
Quinte Mall faucet
Belleville, Ontario, December 2006
A little over a year ago, our brood stumbled upon a lovely little oasis on the long road to Montreal. I took a picture of the faucet in the family washroom because I thought it was rather neat that this lovely and well-maintained facility existed in a mall. Let's be honest: mall washrooms are usually much cruddier than this.
So as we cruised through Belleville early in the morning en route to Montreal once again last month, we found ourselves staring at the same faucet we had first seen a year earlier. Thankfully, the facility was still just as clean as it had been then. I did what anyone else would do: I looked around to ensure no other folks were there (imagine explaining to strangers what you're doing taking pictures in a bathroom...that's as quick a trip to the local jail as any I can imagine) and took a quick picture from the same vantage point.
Your turn: Do you revisit old photographic subjects? Why/why not?
