over at urbantoronto.ca, forumer tomms has posted some great pics from inside the Trump construction site.....



After shooting through the opening toward the TD Centre above, the view below looks down at the intersection of King and Bay Streets.



Moving around to the northwest, we have the Sheraton Centre grabbing all of the attention.



Walk to the right, change lenses, and we have a fish eye view of the Bay Adelaide Centre.




Look down at Adelaide Street, and check out all of the blue light that the KPMG sign throws. Believe it when we say they won't be lighting that up so late in the future.



Finally a trip to the top, with two views from the crane: to the northeast...



and the northwest.

Yeah, we missed the puffing baby!

Wow... Tomms just continues to blow us all away... what a view you would have if you lived in the penthouse!

I wonder how they snuck in to Trump? That place is like Fort Knox, well as close to it as a construction site can be.

And perhaps it is "photoshop" as was suggested to us by another stellar contributor!

Further to seeing Toronto across the lake from NOTL, I saw this in my old Niagara on the Lake thread, when I enlarged it with photoshop:



let's zoom in a bit, just for fun:

Ok, this isn't Toronto, but if you want to continue to see pictures like this from me over the next six months, you should probably bookmark my blog or like me on FB. Sorry for the spam guys, but I likely won't be around this forum much (since I won't have TO pics to post!).

PS - I couldn't find an Asian forum either on this site.
