Inspired by Bill Cunningham: Jameson Avenue Bridge

I went for a bike ride along the lake the other day. I live in Toronto's west end, and my favourite route is along the Martin Goodman Trail from Strachan Avenue to the Humber Bridge and back to Parkdale. Riding along the water into the setting sun was sublime.

As I turned around for home with the sun at my back, rush hour was already under way. Several lanes of road separate the lake from the rest of the city so you need to to use a couple of bridges to get from the water to neighbouring Parkdale. White headlights and red taillights whizzing by below inspired me to capture a brief moment during one of Toronto's busiest traffic periods. From atop a couple of bridges, I shot some video. I didn't dismount my bicycle like in my recent Halloween project inspired by Bill Cunningham. Here is what you see when you're crossing Lakeshore Blvd. and the Gardiner Expressway on the bridges on Jameson Avenue.
