Toronto’s streets and iconic buildings set in snow-Dec. 2012

27 Dec

We did not have a white Christmas, but the city awakened on the first day after the holidays to a winter wonderland, much to the chagrin of those forced to drive to work on the slushy streets. I took advantage of the occasion to walk the downtown streets and photograph the iconic buildings. Despite the lack of blue skies, the city looked “great.”
