I remember a couple of posts a while back where someone took some nice shots of the Toronto skyline and they may have hinted on where to go. Here;s one link:

Those shots of the Toronto skyline from across the lake are most probably taken from Center Island.

You get there by taking the Toronto-Island-Ferryhttp://www.torontoharbour.com/toront...ry/default.php

You will have to wait till after April-16 for Summerservice to start. It is a nice place, gets very crowded in the summer.

Been there... magical place. Bloor street great for candids. Wonderful mix of people and architecture. Just carry your camera around.

That I bet is the "Sam the record man" store front, onYongeat Dundas street. It is still there for now. But shrinking, the big HMV that opened next door I think is causing them a lot of problems. Also that entirearea ofYonge street that used to be full of historic old buildings is being leveled and replaced with the modern, large TV displays bolted to the new buildings advertising at you non stop.

Yes big China town district, and Kensington market is visually great too http://www.showmetoronto.com/toronto_tour_chinatown.htm

Check the main page http://www.showmetoronto.com/ for other areas of great interest.

There is also a really great cemetery there called "Mount Pleasant Cemetery" covering around 200 acres. But the management will eject you if they notice you wandering with a camera

:-)You may have guessed, I used to live in Toronto :-)

I've been to Toronto twice, there is a pretty flashy downtown street with lighted billboard (was a record shop at one point?) that might be neat to photograph. They have a china town too, don't they?
