From a trip to my old neighborhood.
A distinct splash of colour amidst the muted tones of Davisville station.
A Kipling-bound train arrives, while plenty of people wonder why someone is setting up a tripod to shoot into the mouth of the tunnel at the end of the platform.
From a cold night in Toronto, walking around the system and ending up in my old neighbourhood at Finch station. This shot is also my first post to Instagram. You can find me at GlobalHelix.
A lone passenger departed a late night train at Finch station – the end of the line.
At the Rosedale subway station, an empty, salt-covered platform just before midnight in March.
A cold afternoon at St. Clair West. Update: Just by chance I posted this on the 60th Birthday of the Yonge subway. Thanks for all the shots. Well, and all the transit.
At Eglington Station.
The retro lights and tiles of Dupont Station.
A quiet Sunday on the West side of Toronto.
Warden subway station.
Turnstyles on the west side of the Museum station.
TTC 504, eastbound on King Street, seen here at University. My old route to and from the nighmare job that was “Quality Assurance” at a bread company.
Revisiting a shot of the TTC Greenwood Yard from a few years ago, with a different processing approach. Taken at the same time as Kipling Bound.
Somewhere along the Bloor-Danforth line.
A southbound train nearing a stop at Museum station.
Looking south from the bridge at Davisville station, just as the snow starts to fly.
A December morning in Toronto.
From the window of the train on the opposite track.
One of the escalators up to track level at Warden Station.
Just before the closing of the subway doors, at a station on the Bloor-Danforth line.
Another empty corner of Warden station, on Toronto’s east side.
Entering the west side of Museum Station.
The 60s-era design aesthetics of the Spadina Subway station. (As outdated as the payphone?)
At a station along the Bloor line.
On the Sheppard Line of the Toronto subway, near Leslie.
A couple moving between the East-West and North-South platforms of the Younge-Bloor station.
Between trains in Scarborough.
What remains of a telephone section in the Warden subway station.
Travelers move down from the north/south subway platform to the east/west trains on the lower level.
Late afternoon at the east entrance to St. George station.
Warden Station on the east side of Toronto.
The western entrance to St. George Station.
Moving east on King Street.
Against the wall in St. Clair station.
The door between cars on an older train, seen on the Bloor-Danforth line.
An eastbound train leaving Bessarion station on the “new” Sheppard line. I guess after being open 11 years, it’s not really that new, but it’s still new to me.
A wall reminiscent of 8-bit graphics, in the Sheppard-Younge station.
A train entering St. Patrick station.
I don’t remember the station, but it’s a long way under ground.
Toronto is one of my favourite cities in the world, and one I don’t visit nearly often enough. This shot, part of my ongoing TTC Series, was taken on the northbound platform of the Queen subway station.
The wall of Dupont Station, directly behind me when I took this shot.
From the Westbound section of the Toronto’s Sheppard subway line, this is a different take on the tunnel-in-motion look I posted previously.
My previous wanderings around the Toronto transit system had never really included the Spadina-Downsview section of the map. Lots of interesting locations out there, including this from Dupont Station.
The bouncing and rattling of the older model subway car on the Sheppard line wasn’t conducive to smooth long-exposure photos. In all, it took more than 50 attempts to get 2 that I’m happy with.
The tilt-shift technique of faux-miniaturization has seen a lot of use in the past year, with amazing still subjects and short films like The Sandpit. So while my wheels are turning to shoot my own tilt-shift film, I’ve been looking for locations to give it a try. This overpass near Eglington…
