I'm not sure if it's just that photo but I've never noticed how many green buildings Toronto has.

Also interesting to see to the right the TD Center cladding getting cleaned up (at least I think that's what's going on).

^ It's the photo, some of those "green" buildings are actually more blue in person.

Yeah, it is photoshopped, or they had the colour balance set wrong for the lighting type. It is not a true representation of any of the colours. This is actually more realistic:

The black has faded over the decades so the 5 building complex is getting a re-paint. It's Mies van der Rohe so the process under went careful scrutiny to select the exact right shade of black.

Interesting. They did a nice job. The buildings certainly deserve it.

12th man. It's for their football team. Let's get some good Boston pics up here too, to match them. I still have no idea how to correctly link from flickr, so I'll let another one of our awesome posters do that.... Big game coming up!

The so called "12th Man" in American football. There are 11 players on each team for any given play. The "12th man" is the fans. The Seattle Seahawks, who are in the Super Bowl this year actually retired the number 12 so no player could use it on their jersey. For whatever reason it's revered in Seattle more than any other NFL city.

When you click on a photo on Flickr, do you see a screen that looks like this?

Generally, then I either click the upper right to fullscreen it, or the lower right and "view all sizes".

You click on the sideways curved arrow in the lower right. Then, you select BBCode. Then, you select a size from the dropdown list, highlight it, and then cut and paste. Try that while I'm still on and see what happens.

Yeah, honestly I don't feel like posting more Boston until the true skyline changers start making their mark, but I figured it deserved its showing this week.

New England's 2nd and 3rd best skylines.... (not really best North American, but what the heck) Wish there was a size 1 step down ~1200-1280, and not all the way back to 1024.

Boston is under rated.
