This card was inspired in part by the upcoming “Elgin Street Renewal” — an infrastructure overhaul which will result in Elgin Street being closed for over a year. Plans include wider sidewalks and some modest cycling infrastructure.

I have always liked the aesthetic of the hydro pole, both from the perspective of a skyline, but also from eye level as a pedestrian.
From the perspective of cityscape sketches, hydro poles can form a pattern across a scene, and help move the viewers eye across an image. On traditional main streets like Elgin they can also feel like an upper canopy of urban growth, complete with wildlife (mostly pigeons). Read More
