This is my first view of the Toronto City as I crossed the water
in the ferry from the Toronto Airport.
What do you think?
I stayed in the second tall building from the left
on the last but one floor!
In the lifts, it says: Floor 55...
Once in the high building,
I gingerly shuffled my way across the balcony
not quite to the edge!
"Don't look down"! My son called out to me.
I did, but not on that first day!
Late afternoon was a good time of the day
for power-walks or strolls.
This one took us down to the lake away from the sky-scrapers
and alongside a park with trees and grass.
So many people were running or cycling -
all of them going as if their life depended on it!
This is life in the fast lane... watch out strollers, you're in the way
and going too slowly for our city speed!
The sky darkens and the glorious sunset bathes the buildings in a golden light!
This is the view from the apartment.
You can see the C.N. Tower, famous landmark which stands high above
all the other buildings.
You don't need a map in Toronto, you just need to look up and see where the tower is.
Of course, it helps if you're living nearby, like I was!
I couldn't get enough of those sunsets
and the way they lit up the windows in the buildings.
At such moments, you can hear the heartbeat of the city.
One evening, we went out with our cameras and tripods and practised
We stood on a little bridge and waited for the traffic lights
to turn green!
On the way home, I noticed some interesting reflections.
That tower always seems to be in the picture!
See what I mean?
The big dome shape below the tower is the
Rogers Centre, the city's sport stadium. The roof is retractable and motorized.
Among other sports,
Baseball, Canadian football and Basket Ball are played here.
The centre is also used for concerts and other manifestations.
This is the top part of the C.N. Tower which houses a revolving restaurant.
There is a very rapid lift in the stem of the tower which takes you to the top.
Ending up with a peaceful late afternoon shot taken from above.
