Toronto Heights

The perfect weather, perfect light & the perfect height

An unreal calm greeted us after climbing over 50 stories. We had been eying this site (from another rooftop, no less) during the cold months, waiting and itching to to get to its now finished top.

Taking our time to ascend, we arrived at our destination cool and calm, as opposed to the usual sweaty and tired. After a sip of water, we headed for the edge, to see what view it would offer. With a clear view, fresh air, and minimal wind, we began to take our photos.

Looking north, seeing the city rise out of green was nice...

There is an unsettled qualm I feel we all have regarding the built environment. There is something fundamentally wrong with the way we live. I can't say that oil, plastic, or concrete are to blame. All I will say is that that these mutable means are for me at least a means to an end. I find beauty from these places; as Dostoyevsky would have it, beauty will save the world.

For the rest of the shots, as well as high-res versions of those above, you can see my Flickr.
