photoblog image Square Dorchester

Square Dorchester

At the north end of Montreal's Square Dorchester is a small cafe (shown here). I don't know why but for some reason I never went inside. Yet, it is a really cool looking old little building and they serve ice cream and sandwiches. The Square itself is one of many small integrated and organic-feeling parks in the city. It is these kinds of spaces that give Montreal it's real personality. 

Fighting the almost never-ending rain I got up bright and early one morning when I saw a bit of sunshine and went out with the camera first-thing. I managed to get a few sunny photos in the end afterall! An hour later it was raining again.

iain.

Beautifully captured; rich colours! well done. The cafe looks like it would be most interesting inside; why don't you go in there one day soon and take some pix inside and from it to the outside, yes?! I'd like to see the results. smile
Iain Myrans: I'd love to but I live in Toronto and it's about a 6 hour trip from here! wink It was my first time visiting Montreal but if I do go back I promise I'll take photos inside -- it just won't likely be soon! Thanks for the comments as always smits!
