Lunchtime panoramaPosted: January 23, 2013
The quest has been long but my search is over. For over a year I have been on the lookout for the perfect place to get a panoramic view of Montreal. One that encompasses St. Joseph’s Oratory, l’Université de Montréal, the mountain, etc. It’s not that there aren’t plenty of good vantage points but usually they are from overpasses or other busy places where I can’t park or even stop. Well I finally found the perfect view and I am almost embarrassed to say that it is in the building where I work! My office is on the third floor and I have never had any reason to go to the fifth floor because I have no classes up there. So imagine my joy when a colleague took a few of us upstairs to see a new classroom and I discovered a picture window with this view. And the added bonus is that the sill is wide enough for all my gear and there’s even a baseboard heater for drying the washes. I think it was worth the wait and I may even do a painting on a strip of real watercolour paper one of these days.
