Lights on a Sam's. The last time?

Something called HORRIDOR! Not sure what this is, but nonetheless - give it up for Nuit Blanche!

Nuit Blanche by Omer Yukseker

These photos illustrate the fun-times and artistic haywire community chaos that is Nuit Blanche, now in its third year in Toronto. I've heard estimates that up to 1,000,000 people attended this year's event.

Here are a few of those folks outside the Swan restaurant on Queen Street West - notice the newborn baby.

Omer often turns his lens toward local dancers, like these ones peforming on the street outside the Beerstore!

Nuit Blanche is a subversion of urban spaces, both indoor and out. A big thank you to Omer for generously providing these great shots. More of his pictures can be viewed at http://picasaweb.google.ca/omer.yukseker/NuitBlanche2008.

Nuit Blanche Toronto 2008 is now behind us. Today and tomorrow TorontotheBetter Visual Voices will publish a few highlights from our photographers who were there. Thanks to our picture-man Brent Poulton for this shot of a UFO landing at Nathan Philips Square.

In addition to providing plots to individual community members, Hope Garden also designates garden space to local social service agencies, like this one for Parkdale Project Read - a local literacy organization.
