Brilliant set! Nice to see the city hasn't been robbed of it's energy and uniqueness.

It most certainly is not! I was expecting scenes from Etobicoke.

Vibrant! Thanks for sharing, flar!

Toronto always looks beautiful. Such a full of life city! Wonderful shots, as usual.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Great thread title... one of the grittiest portrayals of Toronto I've ever seen. Bravo.

I was expecting the antithesis to your last thread, instead we got a nice compliment to it.

I'm rather surprised anyone would think this thread seems gritty; the set really doesn't seem gritty at all to me. It seems typically flar-style, ie. colourful, funky, textured, random,"step into the picture" realism.

Overall, Toronto's actual urbanism isn't exactly what I'd call gritty either. There are a few gritty parts, but generally it's just a random, spontaneous, jumbled mess of urbanity.

I too was half expecting a tongue-in-cheek set of shots around Etobicoke. Nice work flar. If you don't mind me asking, where did you take shot #17?

Nice pictures! Almost each one gives me memories of my time in Toronto in the summer. I especially like the one on the Gardiner Expressway of the view of the skyscrapers. I love that view in person as I drive into the city.

I wasn't sure if the thread title was meant to be ironic, or an accurate description, but I'll assume it to be "in spite of". Great shots as always. Noted that #29 looks like Toronto's version of an Eastern Canadian/NL row house, which I hadn't seen before.

All of which can be "gritty". "Gritty" doesn't just mean rundown hellhole.
