Casa Loma_810

About one week ago I accompanied my wonderful 11 1/2 year old autistic daughter, Ava, on one of her Girl Guides of Canada outings to Casa Loma in Toronto, Ontario. Casa Loma is North America’s only full sized castle and one of Toronto, Ontario’s premier historic attractions.

In 1911 Sir Henry Pellat hired architect E.J. Lennox to build the 200,000 square foot castle on top of a hill over-looking Toronto. The castle was built at a cost of $3,500,000 and was, at the time, the largest private residence in Canada.

During my trip to the castle with the Girl Guides I took along my Nikon D800 and the insanely wide, and razor sharp, Laowa 12mm Zero D Lens to capture a few of the scenes that caught my attention. Here is a selection of those photos.

Royal Bank Plaza, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Royal Bank Plaza, Toronto, Ontario

On the morning of January 17th I decided to drive into the heart of downtown Toronto for some architectural photography. My chosen destination was to be in close proximity to the CN Tower and some of the impressive skyscrapers with their mirrored windows, as well as a visit to the Humber Bay Pedestrian Bridge over the Humber River. Although I was out of my comfort zone of woodlands and wetlands it was a most productive day however, the clear skies were quickly becoming over-cast due to inclement weather that was on the way. I worked quickly to capture a selection of imagery before the weather conditions worsened and to make a bee-line for my rural home north of the city, prior to the rush hour traffic that typically brings the traffic to a stand-still. Here is a small selection of the architectural photographs that I created during that day.

Please do remember to click on each of the images to view the larger sharper version.
