Autumn in Canada

Here’s some photos of our Canadian autumn.  We’re lucky to experience all four seasons in Canada albeit some are shorter and sweeter than others, the more notorious being winter.  The fall has forever been my favorite season because you can still do your outdoor activities during the day and hunker down with a nice warm toddy at night.  Gets the creative juices flowing.  Life’s good!

Montreal Street Art – Summer 2015

While on a leisurely summer bicycle ride in Montreal, I pedaled east on the Lachine Canal super bike path through Verdun, Old Montreal, up St. Lawrence Boulevard into Chinatown and continued to the Plateau and Mile End hoods.  Along the way, I stopped to photograph the numerous graffiti street artworks that caught my eye.  Some were tucked away in doorways and back alleys, sprayed through protective grates or painted over wood.  Others were displayed on block-long murals. As I rode up and down Montreal's narrow one-way streets, I noticed the unique styles of graffiti in each neighborhood, differing from some simple and minimalistic to very elaborate and detailed.  Here are just a few of my fave works.  They are all "chef-d'oeuvres" in my mind’s eye!  I hope you enjoy the art as much as I did photographing it.
