THE DAY's JOURNEY (012/365 DAYS, V3.0)

These last few days were most difficult due to a migraine 
and I feared this day might be lost as well. 
I felt like crap last night and this morning, 
but I still ventured outside come mid-afternoon. 
I felt faint in the subway but survived; 
I did find what I was looking for at the store. 
Tonight, 
I will be sleeping on two brand new [asthma] pillows, 
with each their own special cover against bedbugs. 
Don't want those to come back [ever]!! 
I walked outside, 
dizzied by the crowd but benefiting from the fresh air.



As I waited for my light to cross the street, 
I noticed this on the side of a bank 
and stopped to take a picture. 
Yes, of course I had my camera with me. 
Always do!!


Further down the hill, 
in the Quartier des Spectacles
I took this picture of these metallic modules. 
I kinda like the scene in the middle, 
even if I'm not big on the human factor in my photography.


Going back inside to get to the subway, 
I captured these graceful curves.


Then I experienced an upside world.


I then lingered awhile in this corridor where there's a projection. 
Some people were indifferent...


Others stayed a while like I did, 
contemplating the display...


I did manage to get a few frames 
with no one around.



Seeing this door, 
it was my cue to go back home. 
I was hardly gone an hour 
but I was most glad to be back home, 
safely!! 
I am exhausted, 
even after so little...

    1. I got my flu shot last November, as usual,
      but it looks like I may have caught a strand that was not part of the vaccine.
      So, this, combined to my migraine, it made for a most lovely weekend,
      concluded by a 12-hours stay at the ER...
      Way to kick off the week,
      wouldn't you say?!?

    1. Headaches, which are a common thing for me, I can handle.
      But I thought migraines were a thing of the past.
      Apparently not...
