Photo Opportunity in Toronto: Blinkenlights!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by DanielD, Oct 1, 2008.

  1. Hello to all photographers in Toronto!

    I would like to wake your interest in a nice (hopefully) night shooting opportunity in Toronto. As I've just read, the Blinkenlights project which started around the German Chaos Computer Club in Berlin is doing a blinkenlights installation at the Toronto City Hall this weekend (nuit blanche on 4th if I'm right) which hopefully will look great.

    Be sure to watch the documentation video about the first two projects on their website. Really cool stuff!

  2. Thanks for the heads-up on this, Daniel. Unfortunately, I won't be in the city for Nuit Blanche this year, hopefully next year.
     
  3. I was so looking forward to this...

    I was so looking forward to this ... but ... I am heading out of the city for a week - leaving on Saturday... Bummer.

    My brother and I, along with some cousins will be going downtown for this. I missed last year due to work.
     
  5. I'm sorry to hear you're out of town, Sandi and Dude.

    ...so I'll pin my hopes for some really nice pictures on you, bigwilly. :biggrin::wink:
