      I like you image and the night colors

      But sadly the only way to make such an ugly, pointy, rough building a bit charming and sell its modern, glassy, and irrelevant look for the purpose of a historic/classic museum; is with the use of light tricks, street fest and commercializing. A best example for total lack of harmony

      Nicely captured. The crowds spilled out along Bloor St. where I went to take a leisurely stroll. Apparently the blue moon hadn't worn off, as the mood was, well, 'different'.

      it definitely looks cool with the lights and people but i can't help feeling that this is, well... a monstrosity - at least its interesting though - the same cannot be said for a lot of other buildings in TO

      Great light and sense of action.
      It looks like the crowds have turned out to see the aliens land!
