Where is the Cross? 十架在那裡?

Last year, I have taken photography of the construction of a cathedral on Steeles Avenue East in Toronto. A few days ago, I noticed the steel shell of this cathedral installed with a roof and window glass. Through the window of this cathedral, I have taken photography of a cross of another distant church. Now this scene cannot be taken again and the previous photograph of a cross has become a witness to the history of the construction process.

I walked across the street, and then photographed the site "spider-man" again and made this album an image record of a construction process.

Photo equipment:
Nikon D300s
AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED
AF Zoom-NIKKOR 80-200mm f/2.8D ED
Fisheye 8mm f/3.5

#2: The construction work is in progress, the previous "images of the cross through the windows" have become the historical archives!

#3: The main part of the church is still open.  The lines of the interlocking steels are artistic within the arched big windows.  The cross of the church is eye-catching in the afternoon sun.

  4. The church showing in #3 at the far end is the Toronto Chinese Community Church where I go to regularly for Sunday service, although not every week, for I am such a lazy Christian! It's cross stands out in this picture! Very soleum looking indeed!

    As for the Greek Orthodox church being built, i've been observing its construction progress over the past 2 years, and I kept telling myself that I would definitely go to visit this church when it finishes its construcion! I am glad you have captured its development on already looks intriguingly grand and almighty from the outside so far! Love your #1 picture! Hope to see more...

    1. Hi JT: I hope I will do another photography on the completion of the building construction and the final one on the interior setup (if allowed) to make the series of the whole photo project more complete! Thanks for sharing with us your comment.

  5. I like #6 the best! It is a good thing that the pictures with the cross was taken. We can't do it anymore.
