Yesterday I had the privilege of going on an architecture photo walk thanks to See Toronto Now, and what a feast for the eyes it was! For those who know the building I deemed #1 sexiest architecture in Boston, you may already have gleaned that I have a thing for tall glass buildings.

They are so sleek and smooth, and I love how their colors shift with the weather and hour! Check out these photos from my Toronto tour to see why I so enjoyed the sights.

Tall glass buildings of the world, I love you!

Great pics. I enjoy taking photos like this and Toronto is a great place to do it. I like that you included the gold glass building -- I think it's the Royal Bank of Canada. Very cool!

I have been to Toronto a few times and just love roaming around the downtown area. The architecture is beautiful in parts and the city has a great vibe.

Thank you for showing off my hometown in such a glorious manner! It's so easy for me to become blasé about what surrounds me daily, but your perspective on our downtown core has made me realize just how lovely it really is!

Btw, the cows are bulls, and they are in what is called The Pasture, in the financial district =)
