150407 Track Work - matthew piers robertson • photography writing creative toronto

The TTC is rebuilding the intersection at College and Spadina. 

This was recorded around 8pm on the second day of construction. The surrounding roads are closed, so the audio is of three backhoes – two working as excavators, and one with a breaker – and other construction equipment doing their thing.

The audio mixes three tracks recorded from two positions with my Sony M10, and the photos are from a little Fujifilm XQ1. One fits in my right jacket pocket, and the other in my left, making a perfect travelling set. Yes, I'd like to make a special trip with my bigger and better gear, but that may not happen at all, and the sounds certainly aren't going to wait just in case I do.
