I'm going to be spending a couple of days in Toronto on a business trip. I am wondering if anyone has suggestions for interesting places to photograph? I'll be staying downtown near the ferry terminal, and while I'll have a car I would like to stick mostly to places within walking distance (or public transportation if something is a little further away).

I probably won't have much daylight time because I'll be working. But I will be able to spend some time in the evenings. Also looking for lens recommendations… Would it be worth bringing my 100-400, or should I just bring my wider lenses and leave the tele at home?

Some suggestions

- take the ferry to island across to get a skyline shot in the evening
- university of toronto st george campus, a few subway stops from union, has some interesting architectures
- exterior shot of the art gallery of ontario

I would just bring with a wide angle lens and a tripod.

Thanks for the suggestions…will definitely check these places out. It's been awhile since I've shot a skyline, and with my hotel being so close to the ferry that sounds like a perfect place to start.

Here are mine:

- Dundas and Yonge Square [There is a subway stop here]

- Spadina Ave (intersects with Dundas) by Chinatown is an interesting area, with a view of the CN tower. Kensington Market has a lot of good food places. Highly recommend Seven Lives for sea food tacos [There is a streetcar you can ride from Dundas Square that takes you here]

- There is a pier and beach area at the back facing side of centre island that makes for good sunset pictures.

Have fun!

Awesome ideas, thanks everyone. I plotted them all in Google Maps and it looks very doable over the course of 2 evenings.

It looks like there are 3 different ferries going out to Centre Island. Hanlan's looks like it would be best to hit the beach Tribe mentioned for sunset. Not sure between the other two for getting a skyline shot. Might have to check out Flickr's map to see the different viewpoints.
