2004-10-02: I've been debating whether to post this image since starting the blog. I don't think it's a particularly great photo, there's a lot of dirt and splotches from the window on it, but it's amusing. The juxtaposition is real, the photo isn't a composite. This is the view from my apartment in Toronto and last winter, which was very cold, these long icicles grew over the roof's eaves, hanging dangerously over queen street, ready to impale a passing punk perhaps... Before we removed them I took this photo. The one thing I have changed is the angle of the top half. My windows don't look directly out at the tower and if this image were true the top would be at a slant, I adjusted this to enhance the juxtaposition. Everything else, even the 'drip' was really there.
