Stranger Portrait – Russell

Stranger portrait - Russell. I was lucky enough to spot Russell pulling up outside the church on 1st SW, Calgary opposite the Hudson Bay building. What caught my eye was the 1930s Model A Ford he was driving. Talking to him it turned out that his father brought the car in the 30s and he’d owned it ever since until passing recently.

Russell went on to tell me that the church was were his parents had first met and he wanted to return the car to the exact place they had met and take a picture. so instead of just a phone picture I offered to take a few shots and send them to him. These are just a couple.

On another note, this church was also featured in one of the only published photos taken in Calgary by Vivian Maier.
