Caption

Nestled on the archipelago of islands that gives form to Toronto's natural inner harbour, the small communites of Ward's and Algonquin islands (only 250 houses total, population ~700) derive their identities as much by the water that separates them from the mainland as by their inhabitants.

Here, the towers of Canada's largest city illuminate the sky, a dramatic backdrop to the small houses that line Seneca Ave. While only one construction crane is clearly visible, the city is growing extremely rapidly and any photographs of the skyline are likely to be out of date within six months.
