And the point of the game is this:


How many views of the CN Tower do you think there are?
I suspect the answer is something like “bazillions” but I am willing to try to see how many I can find.

Some of these views you have probably seen before…  and perhaps many times before.
But, I  hope that some of these views are new to you.

Musicians play on the rood of the Fairland grocery store in Kensington. The CN Tower is a bit hazy but it is visible in the background.

Looking through the pencil like supports to the black and white upper lever addition to OCAD (Ontario College of Art and Design). The CN TOwer and other tall toronto buildings are in the background.

It’s a chilly evening but skaters take to the ice at Nathan Phillips square. Christmas stars overhead and a brightly lit tree in the background for it’s December again.

Nuit Blanche, night of October 4 to morning of October 5

people on a street downtown at night.  3 large orange cranes with many small palm trees in their baskets overhand the street.  they are well lit from below.

Stacks of inflatable globes of the world form walls and columns that leave paths for people to walk through.

Walking through the worlds, hundreds of inflatable globes. Even at 4:30 a.m. there was a long line to enter this installation.

some of the inflatable globes.

A bright yellow box with the sign "scraming booth" sits on a sidewalk.  There is a line up of people waiting for their turn to scream.
