Camp One Iron Ring

Abstract, Camp One Iron Ring, Iron Ring, U of T, University of Toronto

An image of the Camp One Iron Ring office at the University of Toronto which is the office that manages the replacement of lost rings. The office had an old feel to it and since it brought back so many memories I decided to go with the sepia look. If you’d like to know more about the iron (more…)


Looking through

A rainy day in Toronto.


Field Level

Baseball Park, Blue Jays, HDR, Rogers Center, Skydome, Toronto

Field Level access at the Rogers Center to a Blue Jays game. This was Blue Jays vs the Oakland Athletics which they went on to lose the game; I’m not a baseball expert but apparently the Jays are making some major moves in the off-season.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

HDR, Mechanical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering Building, U of T, University of Toronto, vanishing point

My entry for this week’s photo challenge is the entrance of the Mechanical Engineering building at the University of toronto. I just wonder how many generations have walked through these doors with renewed hopes of a brighter future ahead. It seems like it was yesterday that we walked out of these same doors into the real world… there has been 12 classes since us!

Eyes on the mound

This in an image from my recent trip to Toronto, we went to a Blue Jays game against the Oakland Athletics. At one point while everyone was looking at the mound waiting for the pitcher to throw the ball I was thinking what a great photo opportunity this is 🙂

Convocation Hall

Architecture, Convocation Hall, HDR, U of T, University of Toronto

This is the University of Toronto’s Convocation Hall where every year the new graduating class holds their commencement ceremony at, due to the size of the University now the ceremonies are broken down by faculties for the most part and for (more…)

This is the structure that sits outside of Galbraith Building at the University of Toronto. Galbraith is the where the office of registar is for the faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, its also home to the Civil Engineering & Engineering Science division. We all had different classes at the various Engineering buildings, but most of the specialized labs where in the buildings of their respective division.

Walls

“There are four kinds of people in the world, Ms. Harper. Those who build walls. Those who protect walls. Those who breach walls. And those who tear down walls. Much of life is discovering who you are. When you find out, you also realize there are places you can no longer go, things you can no longer do, words you can no longer say.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

Airport, black & white, monochrome, Symmetry, movator, moving walkway, Toronto Pearson Airport

This week’s photo challenge is about something that is Big; larger than life. Here is the biggest terminal (Terminal 1) in the biggest airport in Canada (Toronto’s Pearson International). This is just a portion of the US side of the terminal, there is an international side of the terminal and the reason for this is because you clear US customs in most Canadian Airports. Technically this picture was taken in an area that is under US law which makes arriving at your destination a much more convenient process; since you’ve already gone through the hassle of clearing customs you just pick up your luggage and go.

The Tracks

Buidling, Downtown Toronto, Rogers Center, Skydome, Train Track

A picture of the train tracks that lead to Union Station, Toronto’s main train station located in the heart of downtown. This is where the western trains meet at; you get to really appreciate the volume of people that move in and out of the city during rush hour (I used to take these tracks when I was going to university). However, I took this image on the day that we went to the Blue Jays game back in July.

Victorian Architecture

Architecture, Cityscape, Downtown Toronto, HDR, Toronto, Victorian Arhcitecture If you’d like to buy a print of the image above click here or on the image itself

Victorian Architecture is very prevalent in downtown Toronto and thats probably due to the fact that Canada was a British Colony until it obtained its independence from Great Britian (not sure exactly when but I think its sometime in the last 20-30 years). This particular image is on the Northern edge of the University of Toronto Campus (Bloor St.), typically this is a very crowded area during the day and this was right after lunch time. I stood there for a while until I could get a “clear” view, sometimes photography is about practicing your patience 🙂

As an update to yesterday’s post, (more…)


Mississauga

Clouds, HDR, Landscape, Mississauga

A view of downtown Mississauga from my cousin’s balcony, this view was synonymous with this summer’s vacation as we typically started off the day by having a coffe in the balcony while making plans for the rest of the day. At least its the weekend and the weather is nice 🙂


Underground Parking

Architecture, HDR, U of T, Underground Parking, University of Toronto

Another image from my walk around the University of Toronto (U of T) campus, this one is of an underground parking. What I found interesting is how the ramp divides the new vs the old; I graduated from U of T back in 2000 and the school that I graduated from looked a lot more like the old buildings on the right! It has gone through a lot of change since then but they still managed to keep the historic look/feel to the campus which I like.
