This is one of my favourite film shots of all time. I shot this back on June 18, 2009 on my first film camera, an old Canon AE-1.
This image was taken in the reflection of the old Cafe S'il Vous Plait window at 500 Robson Street at Richards Street in Vancouver. The cafe was already closed and just a few weeks from being renovated into what is now a Japanese Rice Bowl house. I spent a number of afternoons and early evenings at this cafe over the years with various friends that all also loved this place. They made the best vegetarian lasagna, apple pie and cornbread. I still miss this place. It was the perfect place to eat before or after a film fest movie on a rainy fall day.
The image looks like a double exposure but it's actually just a clear reflection of the street behind while looking into the cafe. The only post processing is a slight sharpening on Lightroom 5. The colour, light leaks and vignetting are as shot.
