University Avenue on fire: Toronto
Loading real life preview
University Avenue, with it's boulevard of apple trees slices through Toronto's Hospital District. It is a ribbon of colour bound by bleak institutional architecture. But miracles happen here every day. That's what I love about this picture. The way the colour explodes out of the darkness like hope rising from despair.
This picture is composed of about 20 images photographed using the "in the round" technique. The images were merged using an opacity blend which deconstructs the scene reducing it to its essential elements.
