Canada Life Building, large format paper negative photography
Week 19 of shooting paper negatives each week of 2016.
The Canada Life building is a hallmark of downtown Toronto, with a lighting system on the tower that signals changes in barometric pressure. This picture was taken in early sprint this year allowing a good view of the building. In the foreground, through the trees, you can see the Great Library of the Law Society of Upper Canada.
