In St. John's, there's a famous street in the downtown core called George Street. Its home to a pedestrian only two blocks of bars, pubs, restaurants – and nothing else. Its the entertainment centre of amusement, alcohol, music, dancing, and crime - not in any particular order.
Its rare that I go to George Street, even though all ages tend to populate it, however, it is predominantly a younger group. When people visit from other places, they want to see George Street at night in all its glory and its then that I venture downtown as tour guide.
And of course when there I tend to people watch and sometimes try to sketch. This is the result of me tucked into a corner trying to be unobtrusive and a woman watching me watching her. She never said anything or approached me and I tried my best to avoid her gaze and blend into the background.
