In the Skin of a Lion…..Yonge St, Toronto

Architecture, Black & White Photography

This photo is taken on the 18th floor of the Toronto Star building and reminds me of one of my favourite books, Michael Ondaatje’s In the Skin of a Lion.

It’s a great story told through the perspective of immigrants, who literally build and construct the city with their workman hands, risking their lives as they stand on the ledge with the wind buffering against their skin.

The city is constantly a work-in-progress, its identity ever changing and thus creating a world of great possibilities.
