Random shots on le Plateau

A bit of a slow day on the pictures taking front but did manage to grab a few shots early this afternoon while walking around Le Plateau.

Down one of the snow covered alleys, I spotted these kids getting a bit of hockey net practice with dad playing the role of coach.

The owner of this car was not in for such a happy time. Even with a foot of snow on the car, the Parking warden will leave you his calling card.

One of the downsides of the ubiquitous outside staircases in Montreal is having to clear the snow from them in winter.

The neon sign of Bagel etc… opposite Parc du Portugal on boulevard Saint-Laurent caught by eye…

Hopefully tomorrow I will have some firework shots to share as I plan to head down to the Old Port later and catch the final evening of the Telus Fire on Ice firework display.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.

    LOVE your photography. Never fails to make me homesick. I have to wonder about the next-to-last image though: what kind of jerk only cleans “his” half of the stairs. Seriously, someone needs to learn how to be a good neighbour.

      Thanks for the kind comment on my pics…I think the stairs lead to a single apartment, so guess they thought clearing half was enough ;-)
