Last Thursday, December 17th 2009, the Olympic torch slowly made its way to downtown Toronto. By sheer luck, I was also making my way to Nathan Phillips Square to catch some of the Christmas atmosphere for one of my Photo Mondays. The unfortunate part of the story is that I made it maybe 30 minutes too late and I missed the whole ceremony… Ha ha!
Luckily, I was able to sneak my way upstairs and get a couple of nice shots of Nathan Phillips Square once they opened up the ice rink and started the fireworks for the Calvacade of Lights 2009. If you are around for the Holidays, I strongly recommend you go ice skating downtown. It was a super cool atmosphere!
One last thing. In the last two shots, if you look carefully, you can see two guys sitting on the far left arch over the ice watching the fireworks (check out the original size to see them). Of course the cops were there waiting for them when they climbed down… Ha ha! Poor souls! I wonder how much their seats cost…
Anyways, here are some shots I was able to get.
I hope I get to go ice skating down there once this year. I also want to try out the ice rink by the waterfront. Both look like super cool places to enjoy our winter season downtown.
