The name “high park” probably brings to mind the outdoors, things like trees and fields, people and picnics, plants and wild life. Dirty storm drains probably don’t top ones list of things they’d associate with a park but that’s where Chag and I went to shoot our Evangelion figures.
Heading out to High Park I wasn’t really sure what to expect, Eva figures and parks just didn’t seem to mix well in my head. But I thought perhaps we could make something work, perhaps once there we’d see something that would just fit, and lo and behold that’s just what happened. After walking to the spot Chag had used previously to shoot his toxic Saber shot and starting to get setup I decided to walk a little ways down to see if there was a different angle we could use… Instead I found a dirty storm drain with graffiti and used condom wrappers surrounding it. It was perfect.
Took some photos of Rei at the same stream as Horo, however none really turned out as to my liking though I had fun messing about and experimenting with the flash in daylight. I’ll post this one below just because it makes me think of the moon and that’s Evangelion related. My favourite shot though of the bunch is the one above, which is somewhat unfortunate actually as neither Chag nor I remember who actually shot it. Chag insists it was me, and I’m quite happy to take the credit for it, but ultimately who knows.
I guess I’ll have to review Asuka now as well… It’s too bad her silly face ruined these shots…
