Can never get enough shots from the CN Tower. It's a good way to monitor the rapid changes going on in the city with all the construction. Thanks a bunch!
Actually I go up the CN Tower at least once a year so maybe I'm due for a visit

By the way, nice pictures from the CN Tower. Did you look for Niagara Falls and Rochester? Did you see them at all, and try to take pictures?

your pictures are pure awesome, that's all i can say, i keep wanting to go out there with my camera and take pictures but i have so much going on right now, and i don't have much access to rooftops and elevations for nice panoramic shots.

But maybe next weekend I'll go out and take some.

Also Has anyone ever thought of the CN tower shadow is a time teller; you can tell the time by which building it's pointing too.

No, I hadn't - but now that you mention it, it is a rather grand sun dial!!

Was too hazy to see far into the distance, xzmattxz; I think it has to be a crystal clear day to see Niagara Falls or Rochester.

It's always good to see your city from a different angle. I make it a point to go up the Rialto here at least once a year.

Superb captures there TB.

Great photos !!!

But I really think they should do something with the concrete "stem" of the CN Tower, perhaps cover it with a new clean coat of white paint?

What about titanium or steel? Commerce Court looks great clad in metal. The CN Tower would look dynamite in a similar cladding. Definitely more sexy than concrete.

Why is exposed concrete so rarely cleaned on buildings? Almost all concrete buildings discolour, and I don't recall seeing one cleaned to the original concrete colour.

naturally, we should cover the CN Tower in graffiti. That's how concrete get's refinished.
