    ^I'm digging your Dutch tilt! Reminds me of "Battlefield Earth"--in a good way.

    Ha, ha. Thanks Irishmonk! So nice of you to say.

    ...a non-Dutch tilt from Jarvis and Wellesley:

    jarvisandwellesley800.

    (Tangential observation about the Petro-Canada / A&W building in the foreground: I was initially disappointed they were simply building a new gas station. But if it had to be, I think they did a good job. The placement of the building right up to the corner gives a much more urban feel to the intersection, and the use of brick connects it well to its surroundings. And it appears to be regularly busy, so adds some life. The gas pumps seem dangerously close to the Keg, though.)

    Loving everything about it. Reminds me of some of the 60's/70's buildings I like such as the Manulife Centre.

    The visually-unimpeded tree canopy going from downtown to as-far-as-the-eye-can-see impresses! The contrasting fall-colours really emphasize just how many we have, great capture.

    A reminder that this canopy is the legacy of the past- and needs to be maintained and replenished to stay beautiful.

    I'm also getting a Manulife Centre vibe in terms of proportions and the rigid and heavy yet tasteful geometry.
