Everyday, as the sun goes down and the kitchen lights come on, I take my children for a walk around our neighbourhood. That slither of time when the lights are on and the blinds are not yet drawn is a different kind of magic hour. We see sinks full of dishes, winter jackets strewn on kitchen counters and tables set for dinner. We see the writer, David Macfarlane sitting in his bay window playing his guitar. Our friend, Erin is always at her stove. And the other day, we spotted Rosalinda doing her evening exercises in the living room. We are voyeurs, nosey parkers, yes –– but beyond that, and more importantly, our evening walks are about connection. There’s something reassuring in these glimpses into people’s daily rhythms and routines. That they are just like ours. And that we are all in this together, even when we’re not. Have a look at the Out My Window series by photographer, Gail Albert Halaban. From Paris to Istanbul, she captures these quotidian moments quite movingly.
