Doors Open is a great event. About 70 buildings across Toronto open their doors to the public. Its nice that buildings that are normally closed are opened for 1 weekend so the public can get a bit of insight into the workings of Toronto. This building was new City Hall. From the top its meant to look like an eye.

They had a room full of iMacs. I was rather impressed.

As we were leaving there was a huge crowd coming from the Rogers Center. We eventually worked out that a game had just finished so we decided to capture the people. We didn’t know that the Blue Jays had lost. People didn’t seem that upset.
