City of Toronto

Two views looking westerly along the Gardiner Expressway from Rees Street into the setting sun.  Toronto's condominium boom has changed the western downtown core considerably.  When the Rogers Centre (then Skydome) opened in 1989, the venue was surrounded by derelict industrial areas.  Just a decade later, the same area is inhabited by tens of thousands of people.  Toronto Planning staff are planning a similar transition for an area of Toronto colloquially known as the Portlands, an area that is located at the mouth of the Don River, east of Downtown.  With government mandates such as Ontario's Greenbelt Act, there is increasing pressure to curb residential sprawl, and redevelop 'brownfields' with new mixed use residential and commercial developments.

City of Toronto Two evening views of Downtown Toronto from the Polson Street Pier in Downtown Toronto.  During the fall of 2010, I experimented considerably with low light exposures.  Low light exposures are more difficult to capture than a conventional exposure.  Some tips that I have learned during my trials:  Use a good tripod: A flimsy tripod will reward a photographer with a blurry photo.  Weather is extremely important: Unless a photographer is looking for a specific effect, avoid taking photos on hazy or windy days.  On a hazy day, photos don't turn out clearly, and will appear far more grainy than they would had they been taken on a clear day.  Finally, even with a good solid tripod, a windy day can blow at tripod around every so slightly, and can make for a blurry photo.

Signage denoting the ramp to Highway 35/115 southbound.  Because Highway 35/115 ends just a short distance south of Highway 2 at Highway 401, signage only indicates Highway 401 instead of Highway 35/115.  Surprisingly, all signage for Highway 401 at this interchange uses only Toronto as a control city, despite the fact that traffic can access both east and westbound directions.

Looking westerly along Highway 2 from just east of the Eastern limits of the City of Belleville.  Notice the highway converges and then diverges again at the creek crossing in the photo.  This type of treatment is very common to early divided highways designed in the 1930s.

Signage just south of Marysville indicating both Highway's 2 and 49.  Highway 2 and 49 were co-designated for 4.2km before Highway 2 was decommissioned in 1997.  Though signage still indicates Highway 2 following Highway 49 for much of this former multiplex, technically (and legally) the Highway 2 designation has been removed from this section of Highway 49.

View looking easterly along Highway 2 as the highway passes through Desoronto.  I don't know the full history, but Highway 2 passes to the north of Desoronto's business district.  I have a sneaking suspicion that Highway 2's alignment has been moved northerly in this area due to the Shannonville Indian Reserve.

City of Kingston A poor quality photo of the Highway 2 (Princess Street) approaching the Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd intersection.  Westbound Highway 33 is signed along Sir John A.
