Santiago's Arcade #2

A new look at the atrium in BCE Place, designed by Santiago Calatrava and the location for the World Press Photo exhibit when it visits Toronto.

This is post #400. It's revisiting an old photo that I posted here on February 3, 2005.
I was standing in the same spot, but everything else has changed.

I started this blog on October 3, 2004, and posted three photos that day. One each was of my two dogs, and the third was a photo of a dragonfly that I took for my mother.

My first real lesson in photography was when I learned that a photograph can be the only chance to preserve something.

Congrats on the 400th post! Scary to see how much BCE has changed --including its name! It's now known as Brookfield Place...who knew?

Thanks, Renee. Things certainly do change, as you can attest. I saw the signs for "Brookfield Place" and thought I was lost. I had only just gotten used to calling this place the Galleria instead of Atrium, too.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
