Near a simple chain-link fence, Toronto’s Greenwood Subway Yards stretch far into the distance:

  1. great perspective on near and far

    • Thanks! Our subway system is miniscule compared to other major cities (London, Paris, Madrid, etc.) so it’s also somewhat ironic: can’t go too far on the TTC! :-)

  2. And an excellent sense of color, too.

  3. Nice. I like the colors here

  4. Very nice, Jeni.

  5. Great shot, Jeni!

  6. very cool!

  7. A very effective image… I think this type of composition is strong and colorful. Ahhhh yes… the good ol’ TTC… I remember it well. And I also remember the clanging of the trolleys on Dundas at 5:00 AM! Your photographs allow me to reminisce about a wonderful time in my life. It’s a good feeling.

    • Glad to be of service! :-) I’ve lived here since ’94 — mostly in North Toronto, then a brief and ‘meh’ stopover in North York proper, been in the east end for a few years now. So many new neighborhoods have emerged in the city in such a short time. King and Dufferin is now rebuilt and called “Liberty Village” … the old Gooderham and Worts area condo-ized and rebranded as “The Distillery District” … Leslieville (east Riverdale) and even Parkdale are well into the process of can’t-afford-to-live-there gentrification. My dad, who is still south of 70, grew up in Ajax and remembers when parts of the (now 16-lane 401) were still a dirt road. The inexorable creep of progress …

  8. I like this a lot. ;-)

  9. Wow, fantastic photo! Great interpretation on near and far! G.

  15. Sanctified Brother says:

    Awesome! Great composition, color, and texture.

  16. Near and yet so far. I like the idea of being captured behind the fence. Great image.

  17. This photo is so striking!
