Thursday August 5 2010 – Scooter image

This one’s a bit different. It’s still a Plateau Mont-Royal image, a back-alley actually, but the subject is a scooter I chanced upon in my explorations of my neighborhood’s spaces. I just liked how someone used a small area as a parking spot. Perfect for such a small vehicle. Thumbnail below accesses a 400 x 600 jpeg.

Wed. Aug 4 2010 – Rainbow coloured place

This one I really like. It’s as if a rainbow had splashed over everything: trees, shrubs, stone, glass, even the air.

As usual, click on the thumbnail below to access a 600 x 400 jpeg. Thanks!

Tuesday Aug. 3 2010 – Montreal Downtown Image

Can’t get more commercially centered than this in Montreal. This would be where you shop till you drop, I guess. I just capture images. Go figure!

Monday, Aug 2 2010 image – Pipe Dream

This one’s definitely whimsical, or just outlandish, depending on your point of view. I’m always struck by the way nature claims its own over anything man-made. In this particular case, I thought the fresh green leaves felt like the rusted pipes dream, or thoughts. The wondrous tentacles of life find purchase on the most barren and urban spots. As usual, click on the thumbnail below to access a 600 by 400 pixels jpeg. Thanks.

A staircase is totally hidden by vegetation. This would have made my day as a young boy. It actually made my day as an adult ;o)

Here’s a smaller version:
