[PHOTO] Four photos from midtown Yonge Street in the mist

Yesterday evening was rather cooler and wetter than I would have wanted, below 20 degrees and rainy. The clouds, it was pointed out to me, were so low as to touch towers in Yorkville just a couple dozen stories above the ground. Still, it was walkable, and the clouds and the wet did produce interesting effects.

[PHOTO] Cross-section at the track level, Rosedale

While I was stranded briefly at Rosedale station Thursday night, displaced by a system malfunction of some kind, I saw this layered pattern stretching to the opposite site of the station.

[PHOTO] Three photos taken around Rosedale TTC station, Wednesday at twilight

Wednesday at twilight, I disembarked at Rosedale station. At the moment of twilight, the sky was a lovely deep blue covering the buildings, all in shadow and aglow.

[PHOTO] Five photos taken around Castle Frank Station

When I got off at Castle Frank Station last night around 5 o’clock, evening was already beginning to fade into twilight. The yellow leaves of fall stood out in the dim, standing east of the downtown along Yonge as the rush hour traffic inched still further east.

[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: incubators, Bloordale, real estate, migration, Rosedale

  • The universities of Toronto–U of T, Ryerson, York–turn out to provide some of the best university-based incubators of high-tech business in the world. CBC reports.
  • blogTO notes that a new condo development at Bloor and Dufferin, in Bloordale just where it meets Bloorcourt, is being criticized for excessive density and a lack of community facilities.
  • Edward Keenan notes that Patrick Brown was right in talking about real estate affordability in Toronto as a problem. Why aren’t other people following him (in this, at least)? The Toronto Star has it.
  • Royson James reports on how a Seventh-Day Adventist church in western Toronto not only helped integrate immigrants from the Caribbean, but set a model for others. The Toronto Star has it.
  • Dave Leblanc writes about how Rosedale was introduced to the International Style by the 1944 Hobbs Sun House, over at The Globe and Mail.

[PHOTO] Rosedale, for Flickr’s Your Best Shot 2017

After due consideration, I selected the above photo–“Rosedale”, shared by me on my blog in August in the post “Rosedale in evening”–as my submission to Flickr’s Your Best Shot 2017. I liked the shot’s composition and the colour, and so did Flickr. So: here it is.
