Writing with Light

Back to the Theatre

A couple of weeks ago I introduced you to the Elgin & Winter Garden Theatre complex in Toronto. (You can see that post here.)  The initial series were all images of the Winter Garden. While the Winter Garden Theatre was designed to look like a botanical fantasy, the Elgin Theatre is much more grand and traditional, filled rich fabrics and gold leaf. You can see from this image how ornate the opera boxes are.

  13. That`s a great angle to frame the view there. It`s so easy to take photos of a vast area like that and be visually overwhelmed.

  15. That is certainly ornate and lavish. Extraordinary depth too. That lens must be bought, Edith. How are the savings growing?!
