Upwards Spiral

Another abstract shot of some abstract art.  This is the same piece of sculpture from the last post, but looking up this time.  The sculpture is located at the historic Distillery district, where they used to make whiskey.  It’s now a nice venue for artists, events and various boutique shops.  It’s a great place to wander on the weekends, or  just to grab a coffee and sit on the brick-paved roads and take in some culture.

Mesh

This wire mesh is part of a large sculpture on display at the Distillery District in Toronto.  The sculpture is made of various forms of industrial materials and sort of resembles some distilling equipment you might see in a laboratory, with spirals and cones.  I’m guessing it symbolizes the district’s historic past of being an industrial factory that produced whisky.  At any rate, it is an interesting sculpture.

I have a thing for abstract, yet symmetrical images.  The parallel lines of the mesh play with the shallow depth of field which sort of leads the eye in opposite direction.

Distillery Alley

Toronto’s Distillery District, an old industrial site that used to be home to the Gooderham and Worts distillery.

Two shots were merged together to create this image.  One shot was exposed for the alleyway & buildings, the other for the sky.  The tone curves were then adjusted to add more contrast, and finally, an aged photo effect was added.
