Tall Buildings

I’ve actually shot this one before, many years back, but I’d totally forgotten where I was. When I stumbled upon this spot again last Sunday, I couldn’t help but shoot it again. I think it turned out nice. I’m still … Continue reading

AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario)

This is one of the most beautiful buildings in Toronto. However, because of traffic and parked cars it’s next to impossible to get a clean shot of it. It’s also huge. The glass facade is over twice the length than … Continue reading

Pandemic City

Here’s a second slideshow featuring Toronto during the covid 19 (coronavirus) lockdown. There are still many people out and about but everyone seems to be doing a pretty good job of social distancing, except in the grocery stores where it’s … Continue reading
