Project 365 – Day 128: Reflections

May 7 2012

Another glorious day in Montreal, so I headed down to the Old Port. I was pleased to see that the basin Bonsecours has now been filled with water and there were some great reflections to be captured.

Now the basin is filled with water, the paddle boats (pedalos to me) are ready for people looking for a tranquil work-out.

I spotted this sign over the waterfall that feeds the basin. I thought 25,000 volts so close to water was not a great idea ;-)

On my way back, I cut through Place des Arts which was packed with office workers enjoying their lunch break in the sun. I caught this   girl walking in one of the few non-crowded spots.

I happened upon this well organized home mover on rue Jeanne-Mance. Not sure where the chickens were though.

      Thanks Mark….I wasn’t sure myself if I liked the over-saturated look, so nice to have your feedback :)

      I know what you mean…bring back the sunshine NOW. This wet weather is too much like my old home country :(
