St. Joseph and 25thPosted: September 1, 2015
It’s rare that I can find a street scene with an unobstructed view (which means not too many cars or trucks blocking the buildings) but today in Lachine I found the perfect spot. On that stretch of the road, there’s no parking on either side of St. Joseph and I had a spot in the shade, in a park, across the way. You can’t get much better than that. Plenty of cyclists go by on the nearby bike path and one stopped to have a look over my shoulder. He thought it was a good thing I was capturing the view of these old buildings since he figured structures like this wouldn’t be around much longer. I hope he’s wrong. If you’re interested in this type of stuff have a look at the Heritage Montreal website for a list of threatened buildings in the city. Or go out and sketch a few of them too.
