Reflections of Bloor St can be seen in the geometric windows of the most recent addition to the Royal Ontario Museum. The Crystal is made up of 25% glass and 75% aluminum. Although the building has undergone several renovations over the past decades, this deconstructivist addition designed by Daniel Libeskind is the most incongruous to its surroundings.

  1. What a terrific building! And your reflections are superb! Wow! great composition and perfect B&W! I love it! Hope you have a great weekend, Lesley! Thanks for your visit and comment, always appreciated! Enjoy!


  2. I don’t know if this is a weird angle, or if this is really how it is! Wonderful!

  3. Curious architecture… The more I look at the picture, the less I feel able to understand how the reflection of this building is possible with such a declitivity… Nice mind trap !

  4. I have to agree with you about this structure not fitting in with the area around it. I wonder what people will be saying about it in 20 or 30 years.

  5. Hi, Lesley, I’d like to see the whole design of this novel and quite unconventional building: it looks like leaning toward the road. Nice reflections!

    To your comment to my post – yes, it was the first snowfall in these years here in Nara City.

  6. Wow you have some wonderous shots Sweetie!!!
    God’s Blessings on you~~~ Hugs Dena
