Study In Early Morning Light: No. 1

City Views

Here is a series of four photos taken on Tuesday September 2nd in the morning: at 6:30 a.m., 7:00 a.m., 7:30 a.m., and 8:00 a.m. from my sixth-floor balcony in the North York area of Toronto. The photos all focus on the same area, and in the same direction (a northwest exposure). This is a study of light and how it influences what we see. In doing so, I am following a tradition of many photographers who have done this, but mine is done with less precision and with less attention to detail. The only thing unique are my photos. Even so, some interest might arise,

For the record: Sunrise in Toronto was at 6:42 a.m; dawn (civil twilight) was at 6:12 a.m. So, the first photo was taken at dawn’s morning light; the second after sunrise. The last two later in the early morning, but before most people are at work or begin their day in earnest.

At 6:30 a,m.


At 7:00 a.m.


At 7:30 a.m.
