Toronto - Through My Lens

I'm finally building up a good stable of photos from Toronto so I thought I'd showcase them here. There's a good mix of city, street, and long exposures. I live about an hour away in Kitchener so these were taken on 5-7 different day trips since June 2012. I'll be adding to this page over time as well as my Toronto set on Flickr which contains even more than what you see here.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/matthew...7631623733857/

Larger sizes are available to view if you click the link below each photo

Comments, questions, and the like are always appreciated

I hope you enjoy them!

**Added a second set Jan 26th**

Agreed.

What a stunning set of pictures - each one telling its own little story of life in the city.
