Theme Day - Landmark

The November theme day for the City Daily Photo bloggers community is "Landmark" and there was really no option for me other than the CN Tower. The tower was completed in 1976 and since then it has been a common sight all over the city, peeking from behind different structures wherever you are. In this pic it is framed between some of the condo towers of CityPlace and one of the sculptures marking the entrance to the Puente de Luz which is a pedestrian bridge across the downtown railway tracks. I have shown the tower many times as you can see if you click on the label below.

The bridge looks as interesting as the tower.

Been to the top a couple of times. What a view of your city. So cool to look down and watch the Blue Jays playing.

Fantastic shot!

You are so right about the CN Tower. It does pop into one's mind when you think of Toronto. I love the way you've framed this photo. Years ago, I went to the top on a visit to your city. But, I think I'll pass on that new experience of walking on the outside of the tower.

I wondered if this might be your choice. Great perspective shot for the tower!

Impressive sculpture, can't say I know what it is, but impressive definitely.

Barbara Farr said...

Interesting prospective. That glass floor is freakishly cool.

When one sees the CN Tower there is no mistaken where you are. Every time I go to Toronto the tower is calling out to me to take it's picture. Of course I always obey.

I think that's definitely the most iconic landmark in Toronto. Nice view of it here. I think I've been in that area before. :)

Beautifully composed!

I like how you captured this with the bridge.

This is a truly unique perspective! Well done.

Randy said...

Nice composition.

Tanya Breese said...

a lot of interesting architecture to see!

Jack said...

This is an unusual way to show the tower. After a while, you probably have the same problem as Parisians and the Eiffel Tower and St. Louisans and the Arch. How do you show a well known icon in a fresh way. I think you did it.

I agree with Jack. To show the tower framed in sculpture is quite an artistic approach to this month's theme. Bravo!

To me, it looks like you are using whatever it is in the foreground to measure the CN Tower! Nice picture!!

Karl Demetz said...

Beautiful pic with a great composition, very well done!

Julie said...

The sculpture takes all the plaudits for mine. I love the way you have designed this shot. Wonderful. Even though it looks like the symbol for Russia.

Preciosa, con ese cielo azul de fondo Pat!!
Buen domingo:))

EG CameraGirl said...

For sure I would have chosen the CN Tower if I lived in Toronto.:))

Stuart said...

I love the way you framed this with that beautiful sculpture!

I've been up that a few times, very iconic!

Lois said...

I like the way you shot this! I have always wanted to visit the CN Tower. That is a beautiful looking sky too!
