Love is in the air

Its Valentine’s day and sunset pictures are very suitable for this occasion, after all love is in the air today. I wanted to wish everyone celebrating the occasion a great time with their loved one. This is a picture of the city of Toronto taken from a friend’s balcony, I tried to capture as much as possible of the different landscape and “living standards” that exists within the city; you can see some industrial buildings, some low end housing, some mid-level housing, high rise towers, business offices and so on. What is sad is that often enough you’ll find someone thinking: “If I only had worked here then…”, “If I only had a house like that then….”
And while this complaining and moaning goes on they are missing out on the beauty that is surrounding them. Now what is the point of me saying this? Whether you are celebrating today or not, just enjoy life… its beautiful 🙂

  2. Great shot. Love the graffiti on the building in the lower left hand of the image. Where were you when you took this? Etobicoke?

    • Here is a close up of the graffiti if you would like to see it. I took this picture in Queen west: Queen & Lisgar to be exact. My friend is lucky to have this gorgeous view of this beautiful city 🙂

  5. Love this. I’m far more interested in the older places with such character and history. Beautiful image!

  6. Great photo! It shows a different yet beautiful side of Toronto. It’s nice to see a photo where the CN Tower is in the picture, but not the focal point. Ha! Great shot!
