Toronto by Norman Li - a helicopter and a great camera

From urbantoronto.ca, these are described as Norm's "out-takes" lol:

Downtown south over Bloor



Further north (Yonge Eglinton)



Some great overhead shots

1. The Well -perhaps the largest downtown construction project



2. Royal Ontario Museum (with Libeskind addition)



3. Required City Hall shot ;-)



4. A new neighbourhood birthed next to the (now flood protected) Don River



Thanks Norm! You can share your "out-takes" any time!



Toronto's little Miami under construction

Best Toronto photos ever. Any more?

I like the angles, colors, and clearity.

"Little Miami"
Just a local joke.. lots of talls with more u/c + water. Not Miami weather of course or Cuban party/food et al.

By the time this outlier from downtown is built out, might be upgraded to "not so little Miami" ;-)

Yes Norman keeps providing extraordinary shots but I'm sure you'll understand the lack of motivation to post (waste) them on a thread on life-support lol.

Here's one for fun:

Those distant lights across Lake Ontario are Niagara Falls Can/NY I presume? In 10 years or so downtown L.A. might just have such a skyline if many of the proposed projects are built.

Except in that shot ur lookin' at a compressed photo at least 6 miles deep, with a hundred or two buildings.

L.A.'s tall central core looks to be a few blocks deep - 5 or 6?. So if new tall projects are added in the same footprint you might have more of a Dubai effect as I doubt miles of base density (depth) is going to happen. But anything is possible in L.A. lol.

You can see the skyline of Niagara Falls there as well (those slightly elongated lights to the left).

Looks like a traffic helicopter? Do they have sightseeing helicopters doing city tours?

Latest proposal for former Kraft lands across the street, mirroring my "not so little Miami" in the future postulation ;-)
