Steps by the Lake


This photo goes back to the summer down at Tommy Thompson Park, a.k.a. Leslie St. Spit. Saw these steps to nowhere and thought they’d make a nice photo. I’ve played with it turning it into a black & white and upping the contrast. It looks good on my monitor, but does anyone feel it’s too contrasty on theirs?

By The Way: As you can see, they’re calling for snow in Toronto by next week.

    it looks really good on my monitor, but what are these steps there for? Steps to nowhere, really interesting or it makes a nice photo at least…

      Thank you, Teo. Here in Canada we build all our houses staring with the front porch steps first and then we add on from there. 🙂

      Kidding of course.

      The steps were dumped there as part of an in-fill project to expand the land area along the lakeshore. Eventually everything will be covered in earth and wild grasses and plants will be planted, I suspect. The rest of the area to the west of this spot is already parkland and a bird sanctuary. Very beautiful. If you ever visit Toronto this would be a nice tourist spot.

    Exquisitely presented, well seen and executed.
    Lovely contrast and tones, a bit harsh, but this is due to the conversion (I’m splitting hairs, here..).
    All in all, a fine piece of work. Bravo, Dave!

      Thank you, Mauro. In order to punch up the clouds I had to make it a bit harsh. I’m still using ACDSee, which limits what I can do. In PhotoShop I could simply choose to punch up the clouds without affecting the landscape under them, but I’ve yet to really sit down and start learning that software.
