The city council chamber at City Hall in Toronto, at the north end of Nathan Philips Square, looks like an alien spacecraft getting ready to lift off. Lots of people come to the square just before sunset to watch shafts of sunlight lance between the curved towers on either side of the council chamber and split the fountain spouts into little rainbows. Some couples linger as the night lights come up. This pair had been sitting and talking and laughing for at least an hour.
