Overheard at Nathan Phillips Square on Saturday:
“There must be 10,000 photographs being taken here as we speak”.
I suspect that he was right!

A view of the 3D Toronto sign from the southeast corner of Nathan Phillips Square showing the lights on the arches above the water as well as the Panamania pink and yellow covering on the lights and sound system for the stage.

I think that there is something intriguing about what people will do when there is a camera in front of them, how some people are comfortable while others are not.    The photos that I took by the 3D Toronto sign at Nathan Phillips square on Saturday were of people taking selfies or posing for pictures.  None of them were posing for me, but for their friends or families.

There is also something intriguing about how people behave when they have a camera in their hand.

A toddler sits on her father's shoulders.  He is holding onto one of her arms.  She is looking at a pink smartphone being held up by a selfie stick almost to her level.

A young blonde woman is posing inside the O of the Toronto sign.

A couple takes a selfie beside water.  He has long hair, a beard and is wearing sunglasses.

Two Asian women sit on a concrete wall beside water.  They are probably mother and daughter.   They are posing for a photograph.

Three sets of photos taken beside water.  Two boys are sitting crossed legged right at the edge.  A young woman is posing with her hands in the air and her fingers in peace sign.  A south Asian couple are looking at a picture that they have taken on a smartphone.

A family of four, mother, father and two sons, are taking a selfie.

Many people are standing in front of the 3D Toronto sign at Nathan Phillips square.  There are also many people standing around the pool.
