TORONTO! Hot Off the Press

I'll start a thread of my new photographs of this city. I took these in the past couple of days. They are in no particular order, andI hope you enjoy the tour despite the fact it is still very early spring here and the trees are not green yet!

Pictures taken around 1am of an almost empty Union Station:







And lastly, my favourite shot of the session:

It is one of those projects that has completely flown under the
radar here in TO.... I had heard nothing of it til I noticed the
hoarding outside. It is a style of building that was very popular
in Toronto in Victorian times and there are lots of good examples

Thanks for the pic, it's really an interesting structure. A strange mix of Victorian and Gothic. Very, very cool.

A few more pix I took this morning, while out walking the dogs. This time in my
neighbourhood.







The almost completed new home for the National Ballet of Canada School:



Allan Gardens, where my dogs love to run. It is the home of the Toronto Horticultural
Society, formed in 1834, and a fine place to go on a chilly day when you want Spring
to hurry up!!
