Construction on a grey day. The next time the crane on the Water Tower is raised, we will lose our unobstructed view of Aura. That actually saddens me a little. From a distance its architectural infelicities are not visible and it is quite impressive.
City of Light. Taken during the power outage this afternoon and evening. During the worst gusts, the wind was blowing the rain upwards against our windows. But the sky cleared and the sun shone brightly after the storm, all the more impressively because the power was out in our neighbourhood. Eventually, Toronto Hydro restored the power... but not at the point this picture was taken.
Those photos remind me why I love Toronto so much!
I'm not sure what it quite is. If I were to guess, it is that we are not a sea of single-detached sprawl outside our downtown core. There is density everywhere within the 416! All those little pockets here and there add up to one big whole. Those two photos display that really well.
