Thank you so much, Kay! I'm delighted you enjoyed it. I was reading in the paper recently that some developers are planning to demolish this charming little area to put up some huge skyscraper. I hope it doesn't happen, but I'm not very optimistic about it. #125510

Description

Roy Square is a small, alley enclave just behind one of Toronto's main intersections and main subway transfer points, Bloor and Yonge. I was taking pictures of the roof to sidewalk murals covering the buildings on one side of the square when a yound woman passed by, casting her shadow in the square. I snapped the picture as she was passing. Available light, shutter speed 1/290, aperture f/6.7.
