Scarborough man builds a sky-high Twitter following

Crane operator has the best view of Toronto, and he's sharing it via social media

Crane operator Rob MacFarlane. 

Rob MacFarlane talks about his job and photography at the top of Toronto.

Rob MacFarlane has been a crane operator for 20 years and a famous photographer for about three months.

MacFarlane hadn’t actually thought much about photography before starting his job at the L-Tower.

But when he saw Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield’s brilliant photographs from the International Space Station, it gave him an idea.

Now MacFarlane is sharing his views of Toronto via Twitter. At 720 feet above ground, you could say he’s got the best seat in the house.

Join his growing list of followers (currently sitting at 4301) to enjoy his photos and tweets at @SkyJacked793.
