PDP #185: A Stillness on Queen West

There were opportunities to be had during the recent anti-prorogation rally and march in Toronto. Aside from the wealth of photos of People Doing Stuff that I brought back from it, once it actually got going it gave me a chance to get perspectives on the city that would be flatly impossible at any other time. Take, for example, Queen Street West. As it cuts straight through downtown and runs for kilometers in both directions, and is host to the city's single longest streetcar line, it's a pretty well-trafficked road.

For a little while during the rally, it was free and clear and had reverted back to the pedestrian domain. I had to take this picture, because really - how many chances are there to stand in the middle of a downtown street during the day, with no traffic, without an apocalypse?
