If I meant to capture an event in Old Montreal last Sunday,
the heat and humidity had the better on my resolve.
when I reached my destination,
I saw no sign of preparation 20 minutes before it was supposed to start.
So I found refuge in a familiar place,
the Governor's Garden,
in Old Montreal.
"Fountain [Governor's Garden, Old Montreal]"
Walking in the shade the garden offered,
I savored the moment.
"The Color Purple [Governor's Garden, Old Montreal]"
If people wonder where all of the bees have gone,
let me say that this garden seems to be a haven for those who survived
the pesticides that poison our environment...
"Grapevine [Governor's Garden, Old Montreal]"
I always find it a joy to see Nature go through its cycles.
"Golden [Governor's Garden, Old Montreal]"
I leave you with 3 diptychs of different color schemes.
"Lazy Susan [Governor's Garden, Old Montreal]"
"Pretty in Pink [Governor's Garden, Old Montreal]"
This bear may have an uneasy time in this heat,
but it was worth spending a quiet moment there,
after watching a street entertainer for a while,
one I had seen before
but he has modified his number
and was as delightful as I remember him.
Tourists and locals seemed to enjoy his performance.
On my way home,
I heard a noise that made me think the event I meant to see was happening,
but that was the only sound I heard,
so I figured I wasn't missing much...
Not worth for me to turn back!!
I was content with the pictures I got here.
I went back home to sit in front of the A/C.
