On a recent stroll,
as the breeze kept most Montrealers shivering despite their coats and scarves,
making quite a few stare at me as I walked around STILL in my shorts,
(I did wear socks in my shoes though...),
I stopped by a small park squeezed in between two buildings.
Green spaces come at a premium,
so it is nice to see a park where condos could easily stand.
This here is the Hydro-Quebec Park,
designed by the same architect that changed the sky over the Gay Village,
with those strings of pink balls,
and created a beach at the Old Port,
among many other projects,
"DOWNTOWN PARK [MONTREAL, 2014]"
While I always saw people lingering about during summertime,
it was now empty,
perfect for me to take a few pictures.
" * [MONTREAL, 2014]"
I love the shape of those benches,
offering the possibility of being convivial
or allowing some privacy if one wishes it so.
"JUXTAPOSITION [MONTREAL, 2014]"
The scribblings over the wall of the theater next door
offer a great background for these trees.
Since one can't forget one is sitting downtown,
might as well make it interesting.
"AUTUMN [MONTREAL, 2014]"
I do love the muted colors at this time of the year.
"OCTOBER YELLOW [MONTREAL, 2014]"
The days are getting shorter,
rain is the main course on the menu,
but I still wander the streets of the city.
I am contemplating a scary experience for today
as zombies are expected to roam the streets of Montreal,
even if rain is in the forecast.
The sun is rising,
pastel shades coloring the clouds...
My camera's battery is fully charged
and I am ready to face whatever comes.
