The smell of asphalt displaced the usual scents of spring and new growth today.
I've been photographing the University of Toronto's Back Campus Fields Project for over a year. Today it turned from being paved over metaphorically to literally. If it were a parking lot it would comfortably fit over 400 cars; if it was a building covering the same area it would need to have a substantial green roof to offset the loss of green space.
Instead it will be carpeted.
More photos from today can be found on my Back Campus Camera project blog.
