Robert MacFarlane has been working on the L Tower, 210 metres (58 storeys) above city streets, in TORONTO’s St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood. He’s a full-time construction crane operator and part-time photographer, recording images of the city from a vantage point off limits to most of us.
The crane gives him a 360-degree unobstructed view. “Every day there is beauty on the lake, and little swaths of the city that will light up while everything else is in shade. I just gotta get that picture.”
Mr. MacFarlane, 57, shares his images on Twitter and Instagram under the name Skyjacked793. He has 8400 followers on Twitter, and has tweeted more than 13,000 pictures so far. The crane is still up there, so more images will no doubt appear.
