Nine metres

From a fifth floor window at school I look out at a panoramic view of Montreal, which was pretty grey today. Instead I chose to look down. On the frozen ground, the trees and near the end, the students on a smoke break.  I’m always happy to be able to add a figure to the drawing. It gives scale, interest and sometimes a focus.

    A really interesting composition! Nice observation.
    But what is the significance of nine meters?

    • According to the Quebec Smoking Act, smoking is prohibited within 9 metres of the door. Good thing, otherwise the smokers would be standing under the overhang and I wouldn’t be able to see them!
