The Gardiner Expressway is getting shorter. While some people would like to see even more of the elevated Toronto waterfront highway come down, the portion east of the Don Valley Parkway off ramps closed forever recently, and is now being taken down. Several UrbanToronto Forum contributors have shot images of the demolition over the last several days, and some of the most eye-catching ones are our Daily Photo.

Today's shots come from a chromatically reduced, visually themed, and striking post by UT Forum contributor kotsy. Along with these two, there are several more achingly cool photos in the post where the now roofless bents look more like ancient monuments to a now reconsidered past. Now, wider-open skies of the area will allow a reclamation of the surroundings for new neighbourhoods.
