MaRS Building on College Street Toronto

MaRS Building on College Street TorontoBack in August I wrote on this blog regarding the MaRS building and some issues I had with the hydro lines within the image. The above photograph was shot from a new (Canadian made) Featherlite telescoping ladder I purchased. Combined with a bracket mounting system this new apparatus allows me to get approximately 14 feet in the air. The higher elevation greatly reduces in fact minimizes the impact of the wires which are still part of the scene.

A special  thanks to Megan MacLean, a student at Sheridan College Applied Photography for assisting on the shoot.

Rosedale Valley Road Bridge

Many people in Toronto may not know where this bridge is located. Those who are familiar with Rosedale Valley Road know a drive down this winding road can be a quiet escape from the city.

Below is a soft focus photograph of the doors leading into Convocation Hall at the University of Toronto.

Street Cars In Toronto

King Edward Hotel TorontoRecently I posted regarding the difficulty of photographing buildings in Toronto on streets serviced with street cars. The street car lines do create issues while photographing some buildings. During that writing I thought of the old “Can’t beat em join em” saying and hence I will start adding some street car scenes to my collection of Toronto Architecture. Timing is everything with these shots and there is a lot of waiting around for a scene to unfold.
