The Past, Present & Future

Douglas Mo

This shot of Toronto's Old City Hall Clock Tower was taken last week but I only got around to post-processing this yesterday. I was already thinking of looking at this in black & white or sepia tones when I noticed the Utata project this weekend was focusing on sepia. Made my choice pretty easy.

3exp HDRI and post-processed in Photoshop CS2, using the Sepia Tones action.

Toronto's Old City Hall was home to its city council from 1899 to 1966 and remains one of the city's most prominent structures. It is at the corner of Queen and Bay Streets, opposite the new City Hall in the centre of downtown Toronto. It has a distinctive clock tower which can be seen the whole length of Bay Street from Front to Queen. Work on the Romanesque Revival building designed by E.J. Lennox began in 1889. Lennox "signed" his name in scrollwork around the first floor exterior. When it opened on September 18, 1899 it was the largest building in Toronto, and the largest municipal building in North America.
