As part of our continuing series of the latest photos from Toronto’s Eglinton Crosstown transit project, we want to get a bit artsy, as we feature angles that are good enough to be put up on a wall.
This is transit imitating art.
We regularly bring you images of progress being made on Metrolinx’s many projects, especially the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) route.
They show, in detail, the work that goes into building a modern people-moving system. But sometimes, we focus on shots because they also dwell on the lines and odd angles.
This happens a lot with underground photos that play with shadows and space. But today, the photographer toiling for a new way of looking at Keelesdale station found a unique vantage-point in two digital images.
And a photographer also captured a bit of art in the lines – literally power utilities – used while testing the light rail vehicles at the Eglinton Maintenance and Storage Facility.
Who says you can’t find art on active construction sites?
