Opening of the ROM, Toronto. June 2007

When lining up to get into the new ROM building back then in 2007, we took a picture of the crystal windows that reflected the scene from the street in downtown Toronto.  That’s what this week’s photo challenge led me to in my treasure trove of photos.  :) Continue reading
