20 photos of iconic Toronto landmarks on Instagram

While a cult of photography purists still denigrate the retro-filter craze brought on by the ubiquity of Instagram and other such apps, for certain subject matter this processed-look just works really well. Case in point: iconic architecture and landmarks. Perhaps it's because we're already over-exposed to such images, but quirky, saturated takes on things like the Gooderham (Flatiron) Building, OCAD, and the Eaton Centre (to name but a few) are reminiscent of cheesy postcards: you wouldn't call them art, but they're fun to look at.

With that in mind, we asked our Instagram followers to upload their favourite photos of Toronto icons and landmarks with the tag #iconicTO. The result is a huge gallery of shots, of which the 20 below are some of the best. Add yours to the pool and we'll can update the post with more photos.
