no longer living in toronto, i did have the opportunity to stay at the posh park hyatt across the street from the royal ontario museum (rom) this past summer. a notoriously early riser, i let my body alarm clock wake me as usual; by the time i awoke at around 5:15am, daybreak had already begun. i hurried out to the streets and set up to shoot the latest incarnation of the rom buildings. on the left is the original facade from the early 1900’s while the right depicts the new, ultra-modern entrance to the museum known as ‘the crystal’.
the moon was indeed out and a pick-up truck stopped for a traffic light along bloor street. the cloudless sky was that early morning blue and it reflected off of the crystal’s glass panels.
