[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken at the GO Transit station of Streetsville in Mississauga. I was there in the afternoon, in the mornings and evenings this place offers a very different look due to the rush hour.

I saw this news article yesterday that unlike our neighbours to the south (USA), per capita number of books being read by Canadians has increased in the recent past despite the popularity of TV.

Looking at all these empty newspaper boxes, I had a feeling that people of this town must read a lot. There were something like 5 other boxes also that I did not get in the frame as they were a bit away.

For people outside GTA GO Transit is the transit service that connects suburbs of Toronto with its downtown.

funny picture and great composition. I like the flow of this and the colors are wonderful. It's a good thing to know that many people are reading and keeping up on the news.

This one is truly an amazing capture!! I've never seen so many newspaper boxes together!!!! Very funny indeed, but it works well in a photo all the different colours and sizes...
Let's think that the people there are really crazy about the news :-)))


very nice shots and great colours!

good subject, good centring, maybe there should be a reader buying one.

i like the colors very much :) well seen

Hello Sarju! I am glad that while many of us are out in the bushes shooting critters and flowers, you take the urban setting and turn it into art! These paper boxes all grouped like this are things that we unconciously have noticed, but you have made us take notice. Great EYE in the centre, you have a great eye too! Super panorama. Well done! Linda

Great shot. I agree with you, they must read alot.

The thing that caught my eye was all the different colours.

Well spotted.

Good eye! Pretty funny. Good crop to focus on the row of newspaper stands. Do they really need 3 of the same right in a row? I guess so since they are all empty. :) Nice job. JP

Peoples must read a lot indeed, all the boxes are almost empty.

I read at least one paper a day if i can get one or more!!!! Every morning in the USA. I am very unhappy whenever my paper was not there in the morning!
