Weekly Photo Challenge: Beneath Your Feet

CN tower

Do you dare to walk on air?

Standing on the Glass Floor in the CN tower can be quite intimidating. As our silhouettes hover over an aerial view of downtown Toronto streets, this photo gives a whole new meaning to “beneath your feet”.

Another shot from a glass panel of the world famous floor reveals a section of the Rogers Center, home of the Toronto Blue Jays. Big fans sit below, as tiny as they may seem to us.

Downtown Toronto skyscrapers

Sky Scraping

If I have to look up to see your grandeur

Then what importance do you hold for me?

Everything essential to my heart and mind

Is in front of me

Yes, I look to the sky, why wouldn’t I?

To the clouds, to the wind

To the spirit within

But not you

You have always been my saboteur

Reminding me of the cold

That paralyzed my plight

Your capital charisma

Does nothing but amuse me

And I will not be impressed

By your obvious stateliness

For success is not dressed

The sun bares the truth

Magnified in your every window

Exposing your hard lines

Disclosing your designs

Of your eyes on the pie

As you scrape at the sky

Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

Posted on

The CN Tower in downtown Toronto offers an infinite view of the city’s metropolis structure. During this particular visit, I enjoyed sharing one of Canada’s iconic landmarks with some American family members.
It all made for a sunshiny day.

Lake Ontario to the left seems to be another “infinity”.

Exterior elevators take tourists from all around the world to the top of this observation tower. Standing over 1,800 feet high, it is still the tallest free standing structure in the Western Hemisphere.
