One afternoon while walking in downtown Toronto, I came upon this guy taking a break and being flanked by two small trees. I was originally drawn by his framing between the trees, but when I looked at the image afterwards, I also liked the lines and textures created by the mammoth black TD Tower. I also just noticed that there is a hint of a reflection of the CN Tower in the golden windows by the top left corner of the image.
This image also calls attention to the stark contrast I’ve noticed between Toronto and Ottawa. These two isolated trees overpowered by massive steel and glass are not an uncommon site around the city of Toronto. Green space is at a premium there, and if there is a large enough space, it always seems to be earmarked for conversion to a condo or office tower. In Ottawa on the other hand, trees and green space is everywhere, and that is one of the things I love about this place.
