Agreed, Screature. Nice one, Sinc. And great capture, Doug - elegant linear quality to that one.

A few from a jaunt down by the lower Don River, two days ago.

Terrific Max - I like the guardrail especially and of course the B&Ws make my neurons vibrate just the right way.

Doug - that second one - pretty trippy. Did you take out the colour in most of it? Looks surreal.

A trio of shots from a couple of hours ago. A behemoth is rising on Yonge St... Canada's tallest condo tower, once it's done. 78 stories and I think it's going to be quite the looker. Right now though, it's just a massive hulking presence that's steadily building.

I also had occasion to finally visit the new Loblaws that was retrofitted into that grand old dame of an edifice, Maple Leaf Gardens. Normally I don't get excited about supermarkets, but what a stunning conversion. Brilliant colour scheme, bold wall graphics, svelte textures and overall a really accomplished interior design. It's a wonderfully urban space and it's well used. I have to bring my wife back with me next time - she'll love the space. I'll post some pics later but they don't do the place justice. Also cool is the new arena that's being done in the space over the Loblaws/Joe Fresh/LCBO, just that much closer to the roof of the old arena. What a clever conversion this is.... a great role model for repurposing existing historical urban architecture.

Like the guard rail shot Max... I wonder how it would look B&W or sepia?

Yep, desaturated the dirt.

Great condo tower set and I'm looking to your Loblaws pics, eh!

This is part of the sad remains of what was for many years a premiere restaurant in downtown Montréal, Desjardins Seafood. It closed in 2000 or so and has had no love since. Wouldn't be surprised if it finally gets torn down soon.

Great shot, Doug. Sad building indeed. I like the combination of materials. Looks quite old, at least that gabled part. And the graffiti defacement is a testament to its abandoned nature.

I should go back and take more shots with a less constipated compositional approach.
