Photographer's Note

This is my first attempt to photograph Toronto's version of New York's Times Square or a Market Square of European cities. It was very strange for a European immigrant that a big city like Toronto did not have a prominent square where the public can gather to celebrate or protest something, now we have. The following is an excerpt from the Wikipedia's description of this square.
Yonge-Dundas Square (also known as Dundas Square) is a public square, situated at the southeast corner of the intersection of Yonge Street and Dundas Street East in Downtown Toronto. The square was first conceived in 1997 as part of revitalizing the intersection. Since its completion in 2002, the square has hosted numerous public events, performances and art displays, establishing itself as a prominent landmark in Toronto and one of the city's prime tourist attractions. Central to the Downtown Yonge business improvement area, the square is owned by the city and is the first public square in Canada to be maintained through a public-private partnership. The intersection is one of the busiest in Canada, serving over 100,000 pedestrians daily.
