I was out shooting with friends this morning on the colorful streets of Plateau Mont-Royal. We came upon these guys who were filming a rap song video. We watch them for awhile and here are a few images I captured from the moment.
“Losing My Religion” the title of a 1991 R.E.M song is what came to mind when I looked at this photograph on my computer monitor for the first time. I wasn’t quite sure why, since I am not a religious person. Although the photo was shot through the stained glass window of a chapel in a cemetery, for me it is not about religion, but more about symbolism or belief. However, in 1991, I did love that song. When I started to read the lyrics, I realized the song is not about religion, either. When I looked into the meaning of the song, it is actually about a “crush”, a romantic obsession. The line “losing my religion” refers to “an expression from the southern region of the United States that means losing one’s temper or civility, or “being at the end of one’s rope.”” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Losing_My_Religion
