Photographer's Note

Okay, I've been taking lots of photos from the Gladstone Hotel, in Toronto. I'm working on a suite there and have been taking my camera with me every day! It's a very photo-genic place . . .

This shot is through a VERY dirty window on the forth floor. I wiped a little area clean but left the rest all dirty and blurry. The result looks like something out of an old viewcamera or a shallow-DoF shot of a model train-set or something!

This area of Toronto is undergoing crazy amounts of development. There are towers and townhouses and condos going up all over the place. Smaller businesses and galleries are getting squeased out by Starbucks and the like and many of them are relocated further west on Queen Street.

Shot RAW with my 24mm prime, wide open. In photoshop I saturated the colour as they were quite washed out due to all of the dirt on the window. If you look closely at the sky you can see some of the bigger dirt smudges.
