It just means that someone needs to get up there. Maybe tomms can "photoshop" something.

(though Soda's pictures that Elk posted were pretty damn impressive)

lucci, I plan to get a new camera ( well get a camera) in march and was wondering what you have and what lenses you use? I'll be able to write some of it off for work.

Hey Andrew, glad you enjoyed the photos.

I am using a Canon EOS 7D. The shots above are taken with an EF 35mm f/1.4 lens. I have several other lenses:

EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5
EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6
EF 50mm f/1.8
EF 135mm f/2.0

Once you have decided on a budget, you should consider if you want a point and shoot or an SLR. Then go from there...

But an SLR of coarse. My budget will be about $1000 for the camera I'll get the lenses later as I need them. But I for sure will be getting an EF 35mm f/1.4 lens. You shots look great, thanks for the info.

$1000 for the body alone, or with a kit lens?

If you decide to go with a Canon, the T2i would be the way to go.

Thanks, Canon is what I've been looking at. T2i looks good. Camera first upgraded lenses later.

Check out second hand lenses at Henry's, too... that is how I got my telephoto and I've been pleased with it.

i've always loved how the flatiron is dwarfed by the massive office towers behind it.

I'm too lazy to Google, but I am pretty sure it was the tallest building in the city when it was built.
It was built with Toronto's first elevator, installed in 1893, which of course enabled it to be a "skyscraper". Still operable.







If you were to climb up on top of the Flatiron, this would be the view you would see:
