There's something about Saturday afternoon in late July, as one begins the day, so much to explore, so many images, various worlds. Interesting posters in Mile End. Things on sale at the plaza. Have a nice day.
These were taken in April 2011. The furniture store moved. The store fronts are being renovated. I dug these photos up last night, when unable to sleep. The street changes from year to year. One could go back to the above locations. They won't look like in the photos.
One of the benefits of living in a city, such as Montreal, is the vast array of windows. Windows enthusiasts won't be disappointed in Cote des Neiges. The hospital is at the center of a mandala of windows spreading out in all directions, in buildings both sides of the street. I especially enjoy the hospital windows, the various blinds, air conditioning units during summer, plain appearance in winter, reflection of trees and sky. Stay tuned for more pictures of windows in future posts.
This pictures is from about three weeks ago, when a friend cleaned up his apartment before moving to a new apartment in another neighbourhood. It's exhausting, so many details, so much junk collected over the years, to toss in the trash, give away or sell at a garage sale.
Almost every morning I go out for coffee. It's fun to sit down to a cup of coffee and exchange friendly vibes with the other people who come there for coffee and something to eat. It's getting increasingly difficult to find a cheap cup of coffee. I can't afford to go to regular cafes anymore. However, the fast food joints are still affordable. This morning, I made coffee at home and drank it in the back yard.
