Some houses on a neat little street just north of Gerrard, and parallel to it. It's a strange little enclave in an otherwise rather dense area of down right off Toronto's main street, Yonge Street.

The previous photo, of the red door, was taken in the same neighbourhood.

Just a house shot to me, nothing special.

Suby
Iain Myrans: Thanks suby but sometimes I'm just out to show a little of the city rather than to be artsy smile FYI this was technically very hard to shoot. I had a tough time exposing in-camera to prevent the sky from being blown out or the shadows being too dark. Otherwise, it's just a nice little Toronto street, yes.

Iain Myrans: What? Now you're just trying to confuse !! There is no blue door anywhere?!

P.S. Wookie do you have a shutterchance photoblog yet??

Great contrast from the usual high rise buildings you guys seem to have in Toronto. I presume these are all protected by strict conservation orders.
Iain Myrans: Torotno is actually very lucky to have a huge amount of old Victorian-era homes in and around its downtown core. The neighbourhoods are, for the most part, still lively, well cared for, and vibrant. I typically just don't get to shooting them. Perhaps I should do more! We're also blessed with some lovely ravines which you will see more of her (hopefully-time permitting) as fall approaches. As always, thanks for your comment! smile
Yeah, why is there no CN Tower in the background? wink

-V V-
Iain Myrans: Because I'm shooting facing north east! wink I'll cut and paste it in from another shot wink

Pay no attention to Suby if I remember correctly he has few house shot from just outside his door too. This looks a very charming neighborhood. My wife would like it I think. If she sees it she'll start wanting to move to Toronto. Come to think of it my son would probably like it too as he is a big fan of the CN Tower.
Iain Myrans: Well I'll definitley have to get some more CN Tower shots in soon then! smile

This is a perfectly valid subject for anyone's photography. Anything is just a photograph of something.

This is nicely composed and yes, the first thing I thought when I saw it was what a nightmare it must have been getting the corect exposure.

It's also gives a good sense of what it might be like. A perfect record shot.
