Hey thanks Taller and all, I am glad you guys enjoy my shots so much. I will try and keep them coming on a regular basis even with winter on it's way.
As for an intersting life...I just get out when I can and do the things I enjoy Come summer when I am not above it all, I am north of it all lol.
Cheers,
Zen

This is the standard all of Toronto should seek to emulate. The public realm does matter and this intersection is testament to that. Look at that pavement. Beautiful! Now if they'd just design a beautiful traffic light/post.

Wow some of the best Toronto shots I've ever seen and I've seen a lot. You should post these over on Skyscraperpage also. You'd get a huge reaction there.

I particularly like the image of the old university building, with the skyscrapers in the background.

I must upgrade my camera!

I spy with my little eye the unused top floor ballroom of the Royal York Hotel!
I got into it last Spring during Doors Open. What a wasted space!
