photoblog image The Clock at Old City Hall

The Clock at Old City Hall

This is the Clock at Old City Hall (Toronto) at 7pm last week. I'd wanted to get out of work on time to photograph this against the dull blue sky of dusk but we've had nothing but cloud and and was running late at work, as seems to be usual, so I didn't make it in time. What is fun here though is that you can see the blue cast of light beams shooting around the tower.

This was a 1 second exposure taken with my trusty Digital Zuiko 50-200mm f2.8-3.5. Probably my most under used but favourite lens in my kit.

Clever stuff, light, isn't it? Especially at night, when it creates a world of its own.

I'd have liked the picture without the blue, but I like it even more with it.

Why is it you don't use the lens very often?

Very dramatic view of one of my favourite buildings in the City. Toronto doesn't have nearly enough gargoyles.

Keep the photos coming. Now that I've left they're one of my only ways to get a view of the city in all it's seasonal glory. wink
Iain Myrans: Thanks Megan. I miss ya here already! I'll write you a proper email soon smile Thanks for always coming to check out the photos. I'm going to go out today before the snow comes in the hopes of getting a few nice shots. smile
