Eaton Up The Scenery
I’ve spent the last couple of days looking back through and editing photos from my time in Toronto. I initially landed in Toronto before heading to the Blue Mountain Resort, more of which you can see and read about here. It’s reminded me of the extreme contrasts one encounters when going from one of the most renowned cities in the world to, essentially, living in the middle of nowhere. One of the lesser thought of differences (I’d imagine) between the two is the shift in opportunities for different types of photography.
I spent some time perusing the Toronto Eaton Centre and very much enjoyed the effort put into the interior design. Whenever I see a water fountain – or any type of running water, for that matter – my mind instantly screams “FAST SHUTTER SPEED!” though it tends to also scream “LONG EXPOSURE” at around the same time. So my memory card becomes encumbered by a myriad of blurry shots as I shakily scramble to compose a long exposure without a still surface for my camera. I always know it’ll be a blurry outcome, but boy, do I try anyway.
So, I guess you could you say your time in Toronto was a bit of a blur.
Unsurprisingly, it was, yes. Canada has alcohol and I drank a lot of it. Thankfully, though, I still found balance amidst the chaos and managed to explore a reasonable amount. I’m a sucker for water fountains and the like, and so as soon as I saw this one my camera was all over it. My favourite part of this one, in particular, is the one, central, blue droplet of water which, to me at least, stands out from the crowd.
