First of all, THANK YOU to all of you who came to the Photography Show in Pilsen on Friday! We had a ton of people come, and it was a great party. Here's a hilarious timelapse video that I took throughout the evening from my old camera perched above the gallery. We look forward to having another exhibit opening soon!

So after a crazy weekend busy with work, I had to come out to Toronto on business. I have never been here before, and I took a quick break from the work and visited the CN Tower. I was one of the only people there, so it was great having plenty of time to set my camera and take nice slow exposures. I went up into the tower "Pod," and couldn't get rid of the glare on the window glass. So I decided to go ahead and use the glare as part of the photo. The purple light came from ground-level lighting that shines upward to illuminate the tower. Looks pretty from the outside, but it's annoying when you're trying to take a shot of the skyline!

This is fricken awesome - it's a sweet twist on a skyline if you ask me! Almost looks fisheye.

I've been to Toronto more than several times, but I've never seen the skyline from this vantage point. It's a fantastic shot.
