We must have pounded all the sidewalks in Montreal! On their popular Rue Ste Catherine, we saw this movie theater showcasing an International Film Festival. The alcove was beautifully rimmed with flags. I was mesmerized by the glass ceiling, 25 -30 feet high up, which created its own art with the reflected flags and people at ground level. Here, I appeared well positioned to the right of the white ticket booth, and a crowd was starting to gather near the front. M saunters behind me with her red bag.
Despite the glass structure towering over Christ Church Cathedral's spire, it appears an apt backdrop for this inspiring house of god. While the cathedral resembles much earlier english architecture, this was only completed in the mid-19th century, and the stone spires were replaced with treated aluminum in the 1940s. Aside: I tried to include as many Canadian flags as I could in my photo compositions.
Inside the church, a live radio broadcast was in progress. When in temples and churches, I try not to use the flash out of consideration for those worshiping. As a bonus, you capture the natural light!
In one of the side pews, a lone subject communed with the Almighty!
After walking all over the city, we found a different sort of salvation at this little ice-cream place on Denis St.
They had a wide assortment of sorbets. I got a scoop each of mango and raspberry.
Verily, sore feet are good for the heart!
