So here are my pictures of the
happening this summer at the Botanical Garden,
well worth your time and money.
I am glad I finally saw it.
And I was far from being the only one there
even if my pics don't show the crowd.
But contrary to other events,
people seemed more civilized [in general]
and were gracious enough to leave enough room
to those who wanted to take photographs,
which meant practically everyone,
from iPhones to legit pro cameras,
everyone wanted a souvenir!!
This competition gathers participants from across the globe
where each team presents a cultural reference to their origins.
I find this is a friendly competition which makes us appreciate only better
what others have to offer.
We need things like that to see the word in a more positive light.
I was impressed by the artistry and amused by the often humorous nature of the pieces.
Some represented some iconic images,
like this one,
the Oscar winner from the NFB,
"L'Homme qui plantait des arbres".
the legend of how a woman saved a crane from the marshes.
As you travel all over,
music floats about,
setting the mood for each creation.
my favorite piece.
This is impressively large,
of monumental proportion.
The exhibit will be there all summer,
ending on September 29th,
so no rush,
but make sure to see it.
The ticket is good for two visits,
and I do intend to return before it ends.
T'was that good!!
