Ice Floor
Digital Colour Photograph

2006

This photograph was taken in Markham, Ontario. It was in the basement of an abandoned house duing the winter. The floor was frozen solid with a sheet of ice probably about 1 1/2 feet thick. I had to crouch in the basement to walk properly. I suspect in the warmer months the basement is flooded with water and freezes up in the winter. You could tell it was deep as there were cans, tools and other things frozen solid in the ice. The base of the chair is also beneath the ice.
