Sorry for the week long absence of posts. I was attending (in fact speaking at!) an amazing conference in Toronto. I didn’t have much time for photography at all but I grabbed a few while my host was showing me around the city and taking me up the amazing CN Tower. If you read my blog you know I have no aspirations as a street or even architectural photographer, but I have done my best..honestly..
This is the view from the CN Tower, and it’s through smudged glass with the Sigma 10-20 wide zoom. Lens hood hard against the glass to cut reflections.
This is the tower itself:
The railway line coming out of the station. Nice to imagine this train heading north to the polar regions….
Toronto is a supermodern city. This street scene gives a flavour of its wide roads and high rise surroundings:
And everywhere you turn a corner you might catch a glimpse of the 1/2 kilometre high sentinel that is the CN tower:
All my friends seem to love castles and old stone buildings with a passion. Me, I adore modern and Toronto does modern big style. I love the abstraction the glass and steel creates as it reflects the blue of the sky:
I’ll post some people pictures shortly from the trip.
