Today I am happy to present you with my latest cityscape series: VIEW. I started this project about a year ago, when we moved in our apartment in Downtown Toronto. From our balcony, we have a gorgeous view of downtown Toronto and I thought I would try to capture it under different conditions.
As it turns out we will soon be moving to a new apartment (still in Toronto, but we do not know where yet) so it was time to complete the VIEW series. I shot many times from the balcony, trying different angles and different lights. I settled on a series with a similar angle to show the variations.
VIEW is about the passing of time, and seeing the different versions of a same and only place. Depending on the weather, the time of day and the season, the same view can look drastically different. I am lucky to have an interesting view from my home, so I am sharing this experience with you. I hope you enjoy it!
The images were shot using a Nikon D7000 and either a 16-85mm or a 12-24mm lens. “Hoping for the best” (top) was photographed during sunrise, but all other images were captured in the evening or at night.
The tall building in the foreground it the Ritz-Carlton hotel and residences. On the left, you have the Metrocentre, and in the centre, the white tower is First Canadian Place, the tallest building in the city (besides the CN Tower).
