This is perhaps the opposite side to the glitter and excitement of Luminato.
This fellow, undoubtedly homeless and somewhat lost in his own world, is sitting on the sidewalk outside one of the venues for Luminato.
He was working, for a very long time, on a small glass container, desperately trying to scrap off the label.

Two rickshaws on King Street, outside David Pecaut Square, one site of the Luminato Festival in Toronto. The Festival stage is visible right, background.

In 2003, Tony Gagliano, Executive Chairman and CEO of St. Joseph Communications and a Board member of the Art Gallery of Ontario, was inspired by the cultural infrastructure being built in Toronto, and saw an unprecedented opportunity to cast the city in a new light – to its citizens and to the world. At the same time, David Pecaut, Senior Partner at the Boston Consulting Group and Chair of the Toronto City Summit Alliance, had concluded from his civic work that the arts were one of the most powerful means available to engage the many immigrant cultures converging in Toronto in a common project of city building. Tony and David met and the two passionate city-builders found their mutual beliefs in the transformative power of the arts, and thus, Luminato was born.

They shared the vision of a Festival that would reflect the authentic richness of the arts in Toronto, would take its vitality from the diversity of the city’s cultural communities, and would touch all residents while also inspiring visitors from around the globe to come to Toronto to experience Luminato.

Luminato has become one of the preeminent arts festivals in North America, having commissioned over 66 new works of art, and featured 7,500 artists from 40 countries.

Luma is the restaurant in the TIFF Bell Lightbox, the home of the Toronto International Film Festival, on King St in Toronto. It is across the street from the previous Luminato image.
I shot this image from across the street, through the window of a Tim Hortons, and could not resist the beauty of the scene. The reflection of the building I was in can be seen - the grey background wall.
This shows an outdoor, 2nd floor balcony section of the restaurant, containing an interesting combination of people and place.

A frontal view of the same scene as the previous post. Note the position of their left hands, and the clear view between them. It seems like the top's left foot is touching the bottom's head, but it isn't.
And again, they were absolutely motionless the whole time, probably close to an hour. It was a very hot, sunny day, and there were tons of people milling about.

We came across these two street artists in a square in Malaga. There is nothing connecting the person on top to the person below, except that rod in each of their right hands. Their left hands remain motionless, with the top person's hand extended, palm up.
A person from the crowd even went up to them and passed his hand between the two of them, to make certain there was nothing there.
And these two held this position, absolutely motionless, for more than the 1/2 hour that we watched.
