I am by no means a fan of the “green” movement that’s currently popular, there are many reasons for this but I am not going to get into this here. The topic that I will touch on is what the “green” movement doesn’t take into consideration. One of those things is the waste created by demolishing older buildings and replacing them with new ones. This photo is a great example of this since it shows the amount of waste that is created when you demolish a building. This is all just insulation and drywall from the interior demolition of just a couple of rooms. This large building was about 12 stories and using this photo as an example, you can imagine how much waste is created by demolishing one of these older buildings.

Another interesting fact to note is that the creation of concrete accounts for 8% of the world’s CO2 output and concrete is one of, if not the most popular building material used today.

The lines in this photo are all off, I don’t think anything was lined up properly in this living room.

Back in Time – 2019

A dreamlike interior design time capsule.  This house apparently built in the 60s doesn’t look as though it had changed since the owners first took occupancy inside the home.  This one was a pleasure to photograph and I can only imagine what it looked like when it was still furnished.

New Year’s Resolution – 2018

This was an old industrial building that was converted into a retail plaza/office building, it housed a number of businesses including a gym, Tim Hortons, law offices, dentist office and a medical supplies store.  About three quarters of the building was recently demolished to make way for a high density condominium along a rapidly growing major artery in Toronto.

Welcome to the Iceplex – 2019

The floors of this hockey arena were just nasty, the wood was saturated with moisture and with every step I took my shoes would gather more and more of the paint used to make the ice look the way it does when being used.
