These pictures were taken in May of 2003. There used to be a website that allowed you to remotely control a camera that was installed on the roof of a 50 storey building in Toronto. I trained the camera on the people talking on the patio of the restaurant one level below. I wonder what their story is?
My guess is that the one on the right is a tourist visiting from Warsaw. The one on the left is from Prague. They met the previous summer during world youth day when the Pope was visiting and agreed to meet again in Toronto the following summer. Being strictly devout Catholics they are somewhat confused and exhilerated by the intensity of their feelings for each other. They are meeting at this sky-high restaurant where no one who knows them could possibly be expected to see them together and guess their secret feelings for each other.
Or maybe they're just a couple of guys from Mississauga.
