[PHOTO] Twelve photos of Fort York underneath the city (@fortyork, #fortyork)

leave a comment »

On my Sunday visit to Fort York, I was struck by how this fort is now a green space engulfed in city, towers nearby in South Core to the east and further away in Liberty Village to the west, girdled by the Gardiner Expressway to the south and by the rail tracks to the north. It’s an anachronistic island, of sorts.

[PHOTO] Fifteen photos taken along Humber Bay in evening, Marilyn Bell Park and points west

leave a comment »

I had intended last night to walk down to the new Trillium Park, but I had forgotten it would be inaccessible on account of the Exhibition. Instead, I found myself walking west on the Humber Bay shores, through Marilyn Bell Park and up to Vimy Ridge Parkette as evening descended. I was a bit cool–I really should have worn a light jacket–but the light outside was superb and the calm sky above awesome.

[PHOTO] Three views from the fifth floor, Toronto Reference Library, looking north, east and west

The location of the Toronto Reference Library north and east of Yonge and Bloor, directly east of Yorkville and directly south of Rosedale, means that well-positioned photographers can take advantage of some excellent views. The first two photos are of Rosedale, green with trees and dense with houses, while the third is a photo of a Yorkville well into its condoization.

Looking northwest, Church and Wellesley

In the afternoon light, the condo towers of the Yonge and Bloor area loom over Church and Wellesley. The northwest corner of this intersection is likewise set for a massive transformation, a condoization. This scene will not be here for much longer.
