10/365: these windows are made of gold.


taken with my iphone.
walking back to work.
the sun was shining and i had to show you this.
the window of the rbc building is made of gold.

yup. that's right.

there are 14,000 windows in total.
each window is coated with a layer of 24k gold.
total value: $1,000,000
but unlike the stolen limestones of pyramids, the gold in these windows are not recoverable.
womp womp. hehe.
