A PICTURE PERFECT DAY? (085/365 DAYS, V2.0)

Such a beautiful [cold] day!! 
I went for a stroll, 
skipping lunch altogether.


I had been waiting all winter to show you this. 
I waited 'till the sun would shine on something this beautiful. 
I would love to live where there are such windows. 
So elegant and romantic, 
I find.


Admiring those buds that came out in the last (summer-ish) week, 
only to face the cold this week. 
Will they survive? 
One hopes so...



If I skipped lunch, 
I see it is not the case for everyone, 
but given what this horse is eating, 
I do not feel envious at all!!


The Cirque du Soleil is back in town, 
in its usual spot in the Old Port of Montreal.



Seeing here St Helene Island and the tip of Cite du Havre.


The Biosphere.


Man, the Calder sculpture.


And I've always loved this pavilion at the tip of Cite du Havre 
overlooking the St Lawrence river and Montreal's cityscape.


The Clock Tower standing proudly in the sunlight, 
and the Jacques Cartier bridge far in the back, 
trying to hide La Ronde.


The Marche Bonsecour
often featured on this blog.


Its reflection in the Bonsecour Bassin
in Old Montreal.


Same view, 
but the seagulls had moved on eastward.


Seagulls!! 
That's pretty much all you hear in the district, 
their plaintive cries...
Much junk to feed on, 
I presume...



And just before I reached my workplace, 
I took a glance at the werstern most section of the Viger Park
and I felt the afternoon light was just perfect, 
highlighting the geometry of the site. 
A picture done quickly 
before I rushed back to work, 
content with what I had seen today.

  1. You live in a really neat place; lots to see and explore! I'm hopeful those plant buds will survive. So glad you decided to skip lunch and take a walk and capture the sites to share with us!

    Food can always come later, but enjoying a breath of fresh air with a full time job [indoors], is always welcomed.

    Trying to enjoy it while it's there. It snowed overnight... and promises to be grey for a while.

    Just noticed, before I go to bed, that you had dropped by. Thanx!! Always appreciate the support. Maybe I should explore different venues, perhaps try the ugly... but I'm always drawn to the beautiful, in a grand or quaint way. And I do live in the right district for that. But I hope to surprise me, and my readers sometimes, so, I'll keep an eye open and an open mind about it, and perhaps try, once the snow is definitely gone for good, other districts. I need a challenge. A friend was supposed to challenge me, but that never happened... She thinks I can make anything look beautiful...
    I wish!!
    :D~
