Going to the Toronto Islands is always a treat, with lots to do and see but my favourite part is the view it affords of the city of Toronto especially at night, making it a perfect way to end the day.
For some reason, when you live in a city, you take for granted the very things to which tourists flock. So when I was on Toronto’s Centre Island to play volleyball, I decided to take along my camera gear and stay into the evening hours to do something that I have wanted to do for some time, but haven’t because, well, I live here—take pictures of the beautiful cityscape of Toronto at night.
I have always loved Nikon, ever since I was old enough to notice my father using one to take pictures. And I love Porsche, ever since I first laid eyes on the blur of a ‘whale tail’ 911 Turbo as it roared past me on the autobahn when I was eight. I’ve been able to afford the former, the latter will be forever out of my reach, well almost. When Nikon and Porsche joined together for a photo contest, looking for rooftop design and architecture, it was a contest to good to pass up.
After finding “economical” parking for $15, I got Kayleigh out of the car and giggling she said, “Wow, look at all the towers. I love Toronto.” A good start.
