Really good spot of lighting here. nice tones and textures revealed that we wouldn't see if the lighting was any different.
Wow. Wonderful lighting.... Iove it!
Nice one Sam....I have loved all the shots from the brick works....cool lighting on this one....can't wait to see more from there.
I love this shot - very futuristic as well as a picture of dereliction
very nice to see a shot of brickworks that hasn't already been posted by another toronto photoblogger (afaik). i think what sells this photo to me is the upwards direction of the shadows on the boxes.
Very cool. The lighting is interesting.
Nice tones. I really like the "special" light giving shadows an original orientation. well done.
The brickworks surely has given you some interesting photos.
It is amazing to me that such a piece of property can still sit in this condition and not in all the years it has been abandoned had a use found for it to make it economically viable again.
It's hard to believe it can be so useless.
You will likely have the best record of it's decaying days. Good to see.
That's very different from the type of architecture we used to see on ddoi: modern buildings, reflections of sky or other buidings on windows of other buidlings, etc., but I still like it. So, where is this? Toronto DVP or Basin City :D?
On the second look, It gives me the impression that the "enemy" is hiding behind the structure, in the context of video games though!
Great lighting catch Sam!!
A note to Hugh Petrie. The whole area, which is in the Don Valley, is slowly being refurbished as a public park. Very slowly.
I keep coming back to this photo and I don't know why. I think like everyone else I love the detail,texture, and lighting.
Thanks for bringing attention to the Don Valley Brickworks; hopefully it will increase awareness of the revitalization campaign. Has anyone here seen the Cooper Site in Stratford, Ontario? The similarities between these industrial sites are striking although the Cooper Site is much vaster.
looks natural .. great capture :)
The symmetry and centered composition work. A good example of breaking the "photography rules" to make an impact.
yeah, that bounced light is very nice.
Neat composition on this one.
brilliant shot! everything is so sharp
What is this? Looks odd. You like going to warehouses a lot lol:) I would love to see more pics of close-up shots of food...it is very interesting to see how food really looks like *shifty eyes*
Great lighting and it looks so natural.
I note Henry addresses me re my comments. I haven't lived in Toronto since 1972 and the brick works was there and dead then - and hardly noticeable.
A park sounds nice. Then you can go to Rosedale park and look at whatever they call this new park from there, which is where I believe I first eyed the area. It always looked like a park to me then.
Some things change very slowly. It will be good if they can incorporate this old place as useful space. Of course it is serving Sam really well as a source of drama. And Sam's work will be a great record before changes.
texture! color! lighting! it's all gorgeous!
i'm often intrigued by machinery too, especially those found in construction sites. Their mechanical parts make strong compositions and their surfaces, sometimes mud-splashed and sometimes rusty, always offer interesting textures to photograph.
Ditto on all the above--light, texture, composition. The rods above the machine make it seem suspended (I don't know if it actually is) but I like the tension.
I like the simplicity of this image with its sepia-like tone.
This one at first glance made me feel like I was looking down from a roof top onto another building. Of course after noticeing teh light fixture the perception changed...
