Getting started with the photo trips has been more difficult than anticipated. So this morning I decided to talk a walk down towards work and see what I could find along the way. It was early in the morning (between 6 and 630), so the light was fairly low in the sky and the fog was moving in.
The building below caught my eye as the sun was coming through the trees and lighting up the building.
There are a lot of side streets heading east of of Broadview, catching the sunrise. With the cars parked down the road it pulls your eye along. I waited for a bus to drive through the frame to try and give it a bit of action, however I think it feels a bit crowded instead.
I love the crosswalks along Broadview as they feel really wide. In this case, I waited for some cars to enter the scene as it was a bit too empty without them (and I couldn’t be bothered to wait for a streetcar because it was Sunday morning:) ).
The fog was just starting to roll in as I walked by the park. I liked the band of fog that partially occluded the CN tower and a couple of other buildings.
I’ve always enjoyed this particular view of the hospital. The green framing provided by trees works really well.
Another side street, but this time the car line was better framed for me and really does pull your eye down the road.
The lawn bowling club is beautifully nestled in the greenness of the park, with the hospital just peeking over the trees in the background.
As I turned a corner, I was able to get this line of sight southbound down Broadview. In this case, the tracks work to give the eye somewhere to follow. As the end of the road was “fogged” out, it had a nice end point.
I’ve included this picture, even though I’m not happy with it. I was trying to capture the building as well as the greenness out front, but it just ended up being busy with no real focus. I think if I was to try it again, I’d try for a more angled shot rather than this straight on approach.
I will confess, this is the one picture that I really liked out of this trip. I framed this sign so that both the old and new buildings would be in the background, but ensured that the background was blurred out so your focus is on the sign.
It was difficult doing a photowalk without a plan, but it did result in one photo I really liked. Luckily, for the next blog, we are having a work trip to a Jays game, and part of that game will include a photowalk of Skydome.
