The Daily Photoist: The Great Hall

We’re experimenting with a new daily photo posting. Each weekday morning, we’ll pick a recent image from the Torontoist Flickr Pool and feature it here on the site. It’s our way to give the many excellent photographers in our pool the attention they deserve!
There’s much we love about the work of Flickr user Uwajedi (Joel Charlebois). In his photo of Union Station’s Great Hall (above), the colours — indigo, gold, and chartreuse — are vibrant and intense, and his chosen vantage point really accentuates this grand space. But it’s the little details that really caught our eye — the shadowed crosses in the windows, the carved flourishes in the brickwork, the way the composition evenly balances out two archways.
Someday soon, Union Station will be redeveloped and who knows if this space will remain untouched. If you’re commuting through Union, don’t forget to look up. Photos like this one remind us what a beautiful place it is.
