After a week of sun and temperatures in the 20’s spring has finally arrived. If it wasn’t for the trees being adorned in fresh spring leaves and blossom, you could have thought it was already summer 🙂
I would have liked to have gone out more than I did during the last week to shoot the almost overnight morphing from the bare brown winter trees to the green canopies of today. Alas, I only managed to get out to take some pics on Saturday – and that was pretty much restricted to the downtown core, but at least I managed to capture some shots with trees around Phillips Square.
I happened to notice that Anarchopanda has been ‘immortalized’ in a mural depicting him being confronted by the police. For those wondering who the hell Anarchopanda is….he was a leading figure in last years student demo’s. The mural is on the side of the Milk Bar building near rue du Berger.
I don’t recall shooting the sculpture – Le Malheureux Magnifique by Pierre Yves Angers – on the corner of rue Saint-Denis and Sherbrooke before, so here are a couple of shots. The sculpture was initially called “Sculpture en face” when it was entered into a student contest at the CEGEP du Vieux-Montréal in 1972 and was originally installed in Parc Pasteur. It was moved to its current location in 1981.
