The Daily Photoist: steel

Each weekday morning, we 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!
Toronto photographer capitolOne (Stuart Thursby) submitted this photo to our Torontoist Flickr Pool. It’s an intriguing vantage point view of Eldon Garnet’s famous Time: And a clock art piece — otherwise known as “that writing found on the Queen Street bridge over the Don River.” (For those in the know, the complete art piece also includes the writing on the sidewalk at Broadview and the metal “flags” in Jimmie Simpson Park.)
What surprised us about this photo was that it was shot digitally. There’s a real sense of classic film photography here, and that sense can be found throughout much of this photographer’s work. Maybe it’s the black frames on his photos, or maybe we should further investigate the potential amazingness of a Fujifilm FinePix S5200 camera. Or in this case maybe it’s just the right tool in the hands of a talented photographer.
