I took this image a loooong time ago and processed it when I first got into Lightroom, but I’ve always liked the way the sun’s rays bleed across the front of the building. I think it was a happy accident because at that time I didn’t shoot with a lens hood and didn’t know about it’s significance.
I can’t really pinpoint what it is that I like about this shot, but I definitely love the detail in these old buildings. It would be a dream to be able to go around the city with a wide angle lens, shooting the interior and exterior of old buildings like these… minus the department store retrofits.
Hey Shane .. It’s a winner alright! 🙂
Wah, wah, wahhhhhh! 🙂
An amazing building, love how you have captured all the different reflections in the windows too.
Thanks Katie, the reflections were probably just luck. I think I was most likely going for the lighting effect.
love the play on the word – very cool image too 🙂
Thanks 🙂 It was as witty as I could get with that one.
Another wonderful shot. Have you ever gone to the “Doors Open” event in Toronto? You get inside many of those lovely old buildings. I used to work in 320 Bay Street (SW corner of Bay & Adelaide) and gave tours at that annual event.
No, I had never gone to Doors Open in Toronto, and I have no idea why. You would think that for someone who loves architecture and history, I’d be first in line… but for some reason it was one of those things that I put off and now don’t have the opportunity to do because I’m not there any more. I believe Ottawa has the same thing though 🙂
I love all the reflections and the detail of the building. Plus that light that bleeds….beautiful!
You’re welcome Shane 🙂
This is very wonderful.
Thank you so much!
