A couple more images from Monday when I roamed a few streets on the Plateau. There’s no real theme for today’s post which includes; a line of steps, a buddha, a raft of plastic ducks, an old cine camera, a bike with poster, a lock, and a flower – so a bit all over the place.
I’ll start with the line of steps…this was shot on rue de Bullion – a change from the numerous outside staircases you generally see on the Plateau.
I spotted this little guy chilling by his very own mini waterfall…very calming.
There’s a store called Couleurs on rue Saint-Denis, that has a great selection of furniture and household objects from the 40’s to the 70’s – It,s like walking onto the set of MadMen. Their window display caught my attention with a raft of yellow plastic ducks beneath a chair.
Staying with window displays, a store (I didn’t take note of the name) on avenue du Mont-Royal had an old cine camera in their display that I thought would make for an interesting photo subject…I liked that there was a lit bulb in the background and the reflection of the outside appeared in the clear bulb on the camera.
I’m not sure what the poster in the next shot is – although I saw quite a few here and there, but thought it might make an interesting shot with the bike.
The Master of the gate….
Having missed out on the Botanical Garden part of the Google +2 photowalk last Saturday, I felt I should get a shot of this flower – which I think is a variety of Freesia, but I’m no flower expert.
Planning for shooting fireworks
Although there has already been a couple of displays in the International fireworks competition this year, I’ve not yet made it to any – This Friday it’s the turn of HongKong/China which could be a good one, so hope I can make it my first fireworks shoot of the year. I mentioned fireworks since tomorrow is the 4th of July and so many in the US will be attending a display. If you are considering taking some pics, I did a little tip sheet last year that you may find of interest – Tips for shooting fireworks…Happy and safe Juy 4th to all South of the border!
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
