Condo Life


This is a condo building right on Bay Street at Dundas, which is pretty much the heart of downtown Toronto. There are of course plenty of upsides to condo living in an urban centre, but the big downside has to be the noise. All night long you’d be hearing streetcars and buses and fire trucks and cop car sirens, etc. Then there are the drunks slugging it out in the early hours after the bars close. And of course the endless construction that the city undertakes at night. I suspect you’d have to be a pretty darn good sleeper not to be driven nuts by it all. Me, I live on a quiet street in a quiet neighbourhood but I’m always 30 minutes from downtown. As a street photographer it would be nice to live closer to the action.

    Nice zoom 😉

    • Actually it’s a crop. I had an 18mm prime on the camera, meaning no zoom. I shot it from the street below and then straightened it out in Lightroom. 😉

        D’oh! Haha! I guess that’s the difference between a photographer and a person who just takes lots of pics. Knowledge like that. A real photographer would have known it was a crop. 😉

        • Not necessarily. It could have been either, really. You had no context to go by, so it was a good guess.

          Cheers, Dave
