Toronto - Through My Lens

******* ADDED MORE PHOTOS TO PAGE 2!! ~~~~~~~





I'm finally building up a good stable of photos from Toronto so I thought I'd showcase them here. There's a good mix of city, street, and long exposures. I don't live in the city so these were taken on 5 separate day trips over the past year. I hope you enjoy them!

Excellent set!

Too bad Toronto Batman couldn't have prevented the Eaton Centre gang shooting last year.

Nice. I've been considering visiting over the next few weeks. I've never been - but Toronto looks like a good time.

Certainly wasn't expecting this when I clicked on this thread. Amazing stuff! I wish your photos were a little bit bigger though, so I could properly appreciate your technical and artistic prowess.

Great skyline shots. Ice, Shangri-la and L tower have really helped to fill out the skyline from the classic Island view. I can't even begin to imagine the transformation that would occur if Projects like Gehry, the convention center twins, and 1 Yonge were completed.
