Streetview shot of Frank Gehry's additions to the Art Gallery of Ontario. At the bottom left corner is a bus stop, whose glass shows the reflections of the very same buildings from across the street that are reflected in the gallery's facade. I found the effect to be pretty cool and wanted to share it.
Sideview of the facade of the Art Gallery of Ontario, designed by Frank Gehry. This was somewhat of an accidental shot. I just wanted to get a pic from this perspective, but was later struck by how well the different shapes and lines came together.
An interior lookup for once, at a food court, of all places, in Toronto's usually austere and reserved financial district. I've rarely seen this colour combination here, so it was particularly thrilling to discover it.
I walked past this small building during the summer and absolutely loved these vertical lines. I found it difficult to take a workable shot of the entire structure because it's located in a sidestreet and alley, but I'm honestly just interested in featuring these lines. I don't see colours like this in the city often, unfortunately--the default colour in Toronto is often blue, because of all the glass in the condos and office towers. Btw, this is best viewed in landscape mode. I had to go with portrait because details are often lost in IG's landscape mode, but flipping the phone to the side takes care of that. 😉
The Reader. Third and final shot in this series. I hadn't planned it out that way, but I just realized that all 3 shots are of solitary men and trees. Quite a thematic unity! This one in particular happened by accident--I was trying to take some pictures of the lake and realized there was someone sitting there reading. It feels quite fitting on a cold day like today. Anyway, have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
Minimal October: my personal challenge for this month will be to focus on minimalism--lines, shapes, colours, and of course architecture. To kick it off, here's a shot of the crescent moon overlooking the small planetarium at the University of Toronto.
