Vancouver Cityscape

I like the look of HDR processing with cityscapes. With landscapes, I like to keep it well controlled and not go past a certain natural look, but with cityscapes I allow more latitude as the gemetric shapes and color seem conducive to this treatment.

These two images were taken from my hotel room overlooking Granville St.

The Printery of William Lyon MacKenzie

Filed under: HDR,Landscape — Tags: , , — Harold Stiver @ 7:00 am


The Printery of William Lyon MacKenzie

This building in Queenston was the home for the Colonial Advocate, a reformer newspaper which was an early enterprise of William Lyon MacKenzie after he immigrated to Canada from Scotland

Mackenzie is a famous and controversial figure in Upper Canada prior to the establishment of present day Canada. He was often elected to various levels of government and almost as often, thrown out of office by the upper class powers who ran the colony. At one point he became Toronto’s first mayor.

After becoming an organizer of the failed Upper Canada Rebellion which advocated separation from Britain, he fled to the U.S. This was not the end of his political adventures and you can read more in the Wikipedia article on William Lyon MacKenzie.

Cannon Knitting Mill, Ontario’s Old Mills

Cannon Knitting Mill

Cannon Knitting Mill

This building is said to have been built in about 1860 and operated as a knitting mill for many years. Rumor has it that it has been sold to a developer who will turn it into condos. If so, it would have a lot of pluses, close to the city center, a park out behind and solid construction. On the other hand the neighborhood is a bit rough.
