  3. What a particular building! Makes me think about the ‘kubus woningen’ (cube houses) in Rotterdam – The Netherlands. Lovely photo especially because of the sky…frightening!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Thanks for posting. We have a membership to the ROM and go often! This is a building many people love or hate and it always is a topic of conversation in Toronto.

  6. Terrific shot. I like the perspective. You must have been out early. That’s usually a busy street.

  16. What a funky building. I didn’t visit it the four times I’ve been in Toronto and don’t even remember seeing pictures of it in all my Toronto guide books.

  17. Nice effects in the sky with your wide angle lens… Is it allowed to take pics on the inside too?
