Black (& White) Friday: CN Tower

This week, I would like to share a view I look at each and every day while walking to work. I know, you might be saying that I post a lot of photos of the CN Tower on my blog, but it’s virtually unavoidable from anywhere in the city. Once the tallest free standing structure in the world, our giant radio antenna is currently the sixth tallest in the world measuring 1815.4 feet.

I’ve been to the top many times, but I haven’t had a chance to do the new sky walk, where you are attached to a cord while you walk around the outside of the top of that glassed dome near the top. It offers some of the most spectacular city views you’ll probably see anywhere in the world, and it’s worth the ear-popping ride up in their super fast elevators. There’s also an excellent 360 degree revolving restaurant at the top.

I like this image because it looks as though the tower is flanked by two giant glass guards, however those office buildings are several blocks closer to the viewer from this point. In the foreground, is the upside down glassed bowl of Roy Thompson Hall, home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and many other fantastic concerts.
