This wasn’t exactly what I had planned to post today. On Saturday evening I assisted a photographer friend of mine who was shooting a Bar Mitzvah. The event took place at Casa Loma which is a spectacular venue. I’ve never been to an evening affair there but I have visited a couple of times during the day. I was taken aback by the beautiful view of the city from the terraces. The doors to the terrace were locked but I simply couldn’t let the opportunity pass me by. I asked one of the venue staff (in my sweetest voice of course) if she could unlock the doors just for a few minutes later in the evening so that I could photographer the view. At first I was told “no!” I was shocked…since I did ask in the nicest possible manner 🙂 As luck would have it about a half hour later with all the guests eating dinner they opened up access to the terrace for about 5 minutes. So with limited time I mounted my DSLR unto a tripod. Knowing I didn’t have time for too long an exposure I set the ISO to 800 and took 2 shots.
I present to you the view from Casa Loma.
