The last time I had been to the Distillery District in Toronto was while doing Artfest in August. At that time, it was my first time being at the Distillery District and I absolutely loved the whole atmosphere of it. It has such character to it and there are so much amazing and interesting subject matter to be photographed. There are a lot of events that go on there and many art displays as well. All in all, between the cafes, small galleries, bakeries, shop and sights, this place is definitely a place to go in Toronto.
A couple of weeks ago, I finally made it back to the Distillery (after trying many times to make it to the Christmas market a couple times and failing.) And I was so looking forward to doing more photography.
The Gooderham and Worts Distillery was founded in 1832. Other than the modern architecture that has been built around it and new upgrades in small parts of it, this Distillery is full of heritage that preserves its look for all these years.
There is so much texture and colour to the brick and cobblestone of the entire area and I love looking at everything.
These apartment buildings overlook the Distillery. As modern as they are, they have a great shape to them and I loved the reflection on the surface. The contrast between the architecture is really kind of a cool element.
This shot was probably my favourite one of the day. I turned around and saw the CN Tower through the buildings. As I took the photo, the birds just perfectly placed themselves in a great place in the frame. And I was pretty excited about it.
The Distillery District is probably one of my favourite places in Toronto. Its just a great place to walk around and see some great elements and subject matter. From an artists percpective, it's also a great place for inspiration.
