[PHOTO] Six photos of the Toronto skyline at evening

leave a comment »

A friend’s balcony offers unforgettable views of the Toronto skyline and Lake Ontario beyond, so I naturally took advantage of it.

Three photos in this set–the first one here, and the last two–are panoramas kindly stitched together by Google Photos. (One must acknowledge one’s collaborators.) Click on them to see their full breadth.

[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: One Yonge, park budget, Berczy Park, cyclists, Soulpepper Theatre

leave a comment »

  • Urban Toronto reports on the massive towers being planned for One Yonge Street.
  • The City of Toronto has massive shortfalls in its budget for park repairs. The city is unprepared for (as an example) a recurrence of 2017’s flooding. CBC reports.
  • If there is dead grass at Berczy Park, the dogs the park is dedicated to can be fairly blamed for this. The Toronto Star reports.
  • Rehana Mushtaq, writing at The Varsity, is right in arguing for a shift in the culture of transportation, for the benefit of cyclists.
  • Toronto’s Soulpepper Theatre, in the wake of allegations of inappropriate behaviour, is shaking up its training program. CBC reports.

The great eastern window of the Scotiabank Theatre Toronto, downtown in the middle of the Entertainment District and elevated several stories from street level, offers remarkable views of the Toronto skyline. I was there yesterday, taking one photo in the early evening, and one in the late evening as twilight blue settled down.

[PHOTO] Sixteen photos of art from Toronto Revealed, at the TD Gallery (#tdgallery)

As I promised yesterday, here is some more of the art that I saw at the TD Gallery’s Toronto Revealed exhibition. Although some of the works (paintings, today, mostly painted in oils) depicted scenes predating my arrival in Toronto or even my existence, like that showing the excavation of the Eaton Centre, most of the others were scenes that I recognized with delight from my daily life. One, of a nondescript gas station, was based on a location at most a lazy ten minutes’ walk from my home.

More details on the individual works–their names, their painters, their dates–can be found by clicking through to my Flickr page.
