The Mechanical Phoenix by JoshDykgraaf The Mechanical Phoenix by JoshDykgraaf
I always enjoy making my city images and this one is no exception. Here I have worked with Toronto based photographer Jesse Blight. Check him out: [link]

Toronto is an interesting city, being the financial centre of Canada as well as the country's largest city, it is perhaps the true centre of power, dwarfing the capital of Ottawa. Much the same way that Sydney and Melbourne dwarf Canberra here in Australia.

Toronto is the epitome of the modern skyscraper city and has an iconic skyline to match with some fantastic architecture. The city seems relatively untouched by the economic crises and decay affecting much of North America.

That being said though, the city is for better or worse going through a period of change, with a number of seemingly mass-produced developments going up and the iconic skyline being changed, hence the title and form.

This one is well suited to being a wallpaper and I have put it up as one. Enjoy =D

All source imagery taken by Jesse, additional stock shots by myself.
