Aaron Vaz is a landscape and astro photographer from Toronto, Canada. 2020 was the year he truly fell back into photography and was a start of a new photography journey. It was the late night milky way and meteor shower chases to early morning fall sunrise trips that helped reignite the photo spark in him.
When I moved to Canada 15 years ago, I lived at McCowan and Finch due to its 24/7 access to the TTC. We’d take the bus to Scarborough Town Centre (STC) and take the Scarborough RT into the city. It was on these TTC rides I learned how the city was laid out and how the street grid system worked. One observation I had over the years was that a majority of commuters would board/offboard the train at STC. Only a hand full of people would use McCowan station a few hundred meters down the street. In my mind it was more like ‘Ghost Station’ by comparison. It was this theme that was a big inspiration for this photo.
