What a great shot, I love the perspective. Too bad about the graffiti, it will cost a lot of money to paint over that.

Toronto mayor Rob Ford has declared war on graffiti.

I wonder who'll win the war in the end: Ford or the graffiti artists. Just wondering.

I LOVE the technique you used on this photo. It works well here.

I love the angle and the holga-ish look! Excellent!

this does look gritty... and these overpasses provide a good workout as you slowly wind your way up and across and back down, adding about 10 extra minutes to your trip!

Too bad about the graffiti. It's not very artistic, is it?

the problem with painting over graffiti is that new graffiti seems to appear almost immediately!

I don't normally like graffiti, but in this case, in black & white, I think it looks like a landscape with fireworks. Sort of.

Anyhow, I like the photo a lot!

Don't you wonder how the heck they get up there so high and when do they do this stuff? Love the perspective of this shot and that it is in B/W.

I like your Holga-ish shot, not the graffiti...
