The Daily Photoist: the suburb inside

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!
Torontoist Flickr pool member David Sleep has taken a particularly nocturnal approach to capturing the city. Each of his nighttime images has a haunting, dream-like quality, with intense colours and blurs of light. His approach makes very familiar sites seems strangely disconcerting. We love the “fog” effect in the upper half of this shot — in fact it’s apparently defocused raindrops on the window of the car he was shooting from. It’s definitely worth a click to check out his other images.
(Can anyone identify the benign locale above? It’s not a subway station as we initially thought.)
