Toronto: A Canadian Staple

This shot was taken in May of 2013 in downtown Toronto. I was standing on a bridge across the railroad tracks facing towards Rogers Centre (formerly known as the Skydome)

In a time of confusion, disappointment and opportunity, I impulsively hopped on a place to visit a few friends in Ontario. After spending some time in Ireland and unhappy with the results, I decided it was time to go home. All the way back to Vancouver was out of the question, so halfway between home and back east was where I met some of the kindest people I’ve encountered on this earth. The friends that I made in Toronto will undoubtedly bring me back there as soon as life will allow. Two of the people I encountered showed me to these places for these pictures to happen. Above is the CN Tower from the home of the Blue Jays, the bridge to Rogers Centre. Below is Casa Loma, a castle style residence that has been turned into a museums. To more adventures with amazing people!

Thanks for following, friends!

In downtown Toronto, a castle named Casa Loma is hiding behind George Brown College and Spadina Park. It inspired me with it's beauty a few times while I was living in and near Toronto.

Jogging in Toronto

Jogging in Toronto

If you’ve spent any time in Toronto, capitol of Ontario, you must be familiar with the CN Tower. It boasted the title of tallest man-made free standing structure between it’s opening in 1976 to 2007, so it should come as no surprise that in comparison to the rest of the buildings and structures in Toronto, the CN Tower is the most distinctive. The shape of the tower is, as well, a feature that makes it stand out among the rest.

In this shot of Toronto taken in August of 2012, the CN Tower is the prominent structure, although I included the foreground of the location I was shooting from the add some depth and dimension. Commonly considered a city with a lot of concrete and not much greenery, I learned that with a little exploration, Toronto has an expanse of parks.

Thanks for joining me.

Toronto

In August of 2012, I spent some time in southern Ontario and with that comes the capitol of the province, Toronto. I discovered a random lookout point while driving around and getting lost in the city, and I spent a breakfast and a dinner here on different days. This photograph with the swan and the heavy cover of haze/smog seemed to capture a dramatic side of the city in the wee hours of the summer morning.Image
