A Roaming Day by Sara Hini in Montreal, Québec, Canada

A Roaming Day is a photo series about the simple comeliness of everyday life.

All the photos have been taken in the same day as I roamed in the city with a disposable camera. One day – 24 hours. One camera – 27 exposures. I wandered for an entire day (and night), going nowhere in particular, and captured what seemed to me unusual, amusing or simply beautiful.

It’s raw, surprising and unpolished just like Montreal.
