Description
Toronto is the provincial capital of Ontario and the most populous city in Canada and today is considered the financial capital of Canada and is ranked among the top financial centers in the world.

We are in the city’s center, views of vehicles and pedestrians on the road, the lens focuses at the CN Tower, a 553.3 m-high concrete communications and observation tower which is a signature icon of Toronto's skyline and held the record for the world's tallest free-standing structure and the world's tallest tower. Around the CN tower a series of skyscrapers made mainly of glass and steel.

A city in motion, groups of friends who are enjoying it and some school children who are obviously having a tour in the sights of the center, accompanied by their teachers. A kiosk and a group of skyscrapers, a fountain and the historic clock tower on Yonge Street.

The bustle in the multicultural city continues.

Creator's description


This is the downtown area of Toronto, and you feel rather small here standing beneath the Canadian National Tower, 1800 ft high, and these giant skyscrapers. But actually they are less ugly than I expected –indeed they have a certain attraction. But how do they clean all those windows? If you look you will see cradles lowered from the roof. I must say a window-cleaner here certainly needs a good head for heights.
While we’re here let’s look at the people passing by –a pretty mixed lot, as you see.
