Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

To me “urban” signifies a group of tall buildings huddled together. Within these buildings people work, live and play. Seeing the city from the outside, though, can be impressive – especially when you approach it from the water. After a visit to the Toronto Island, we see the unique skyline of the city of Toronto.

From this distance we can see the places that we go to often over the weekends: the Harbourfront and the district we often visit.

A city is always expanding, and Toronto is no different as the cranes in the distance testify. What a beautiful view from the residents must have from their shoreline apartments.

    1. There are so many parts to the city – I have shown you just one. I do admit that I enjoyed seeing her from this view. She looks so stately. Once you walk in her streets, you experience her vibrancy.

    1. The only problem with so many hi-rise buildings is that you yearn at times for green grass and open spaces. Knowing that, I made sure that we live near a park and some green space.

    1. Thank you John, it is good to be back. And we all have our moments of memory loss. 🙂
      I have seen Seattle’s skyline only in pictures – and movies of course – and it looks impressive to me as well.

    1. The tower is the CN Tower and stands at 553.33 metres (1,815.4 ft) tall. It was the tallest building for 34 years until a taller one was built in Dubai and later on in Japan. It is still the tallest free-standing building in the Western hemisphere. It’s height beats the Brixton tower in Hillbrow by far.

    1. I think there are pros and cons to living in a big city. Though there are days that thinking of the pros is hard. I think I would change my living environment for yours in a heartbeat Darlene 🙂
