With the weather warming up, the crowds have begun to gather again around the George Étienne Cartier Monument for the habitual Sunday Tam Tams.
On May 18 I was in the vicinity, so headed over for what was my first visit to the tam tam gathering this year. It was a pretty quick visit as I had other things to do, which was a shame given that it was such a gorgeous warm day and I would have been happy just chilling to the beat of drums.
We approached the monument via Jeanne-Mance Park and I stopped to get a few shots from the steps that lead up to avenue du Parc.
While waiting for the lights to change to cross avenue du Parc I noticed a lady with a stripped handbag that replicated the zebra crossing…
I had the idea of shooting multiple exposures from the hip while crossing. My original thought was to just hope and get some interesting shots, but when I was home and going through the frames in lightroom I decided to crop each shot and combine into one image.
Although I say so myself, I really liked how it came out. So much in fact that I plan on doing a series of these, so hope to have more to share soon.
There were quite a few people taking advantage of the sunny day, most likely helped by it being a long weekend.
Just as we were leaving, this little guy in a hat grabbed my attention…
Les Boules Roses
Another sign summer is pretty much here is the return of the Boules Roses along Sainte Catherine in the Village. The street is once again closed to vehicles for the duration of the summer between May 15 and September 1 for the Aires Libres festival. This is the 4th year that 200,000 pink balls have been suspended above rue Sainte Catherine along the 1.1km stretch between Saint Hubert and Papineau streets.
