freedom arches

new city hall sunset

contained within the larger nathan phillips square, one of the most distinctive landmarks in toronto is ‘new city hall’ (or ‘toronto city hall’). the name is a bit of a misnomer as it dates back over 50 years to the mid 60’s when it was completed and inaugurated as the city’s latest municipal building – the 4th one in the city’s history.

here it is, photographed around sunset time on a beautiful summer evening with the reflecting pool, fountains, freedom arches and 3d toronto sign all lit up in the foreground.

crashing wave 1, 2 & 3

we had one last day in israel and chose to return to the old port city of jaffa to spend it there. my wife and i just fell in love with this part of the tel aviv-yafo metropolis. taking a break from walking the streets of the old port, we returned to the car at the parking lot. there was a certain something with the light at this time of day and the mediterranean sea seemed a bit more agitated than normal. i set my gear up on the port wall and observed wave after wave crashing.

ancient corridor revisited

the more things change, the more they stay the same… here we are back in jerusalem’s old jewish quarter, some 23 years after i first photographed this scene. my first rendition of this place was photographed on slide film during my last visit to israel. this one was shot with my dslr. owing to a less-than-optimal scan of my slide, this version has better clarity, but aside from that, not much has changed in this ancient space…
