Thursday Doors – May 25, 2016

“Munk Institute Doors” - University of Toronto

Walking along Toronto’s Bloor Street West, I came across these wonderful doors. The Munk Institute is part of the University of Toronto campus and I’ve admired them often, as I walked past. Today the light was just right. Much to my surprise, I had never noticed the details in the stonework above the door and topping the pillars. Have a closer look.

Interestingly, many of the compositional elements that enhance this image are subconscious when I make the photo. It’s one of those scenes that appeal to me, but I can’t articulate the ‘why’ till I look closely at the final image.

        Thanks! One of the joys of photography is looking back at the images and realizing just how much our eyes miss when observing a scene. I never even noticed the gargoyles on the columns.
