Sometimes it's nice to walk in one's own city with the eyes of a tourist. One notices things that normally are just passed by. I have often walked up the street near this building as it leads from the metro to the church where I often attend concerts. This time I decided to deviate slightly and was treated to the gold of the sun accentuating the architectural details on this building. It houses offices of our municipal government (hence the flag of Montreal flying on top).
Later, walking form the concert, we passed our city hall, lit not by the sun, but by strategically placed lighting. It too, accentuated architectural details. If only, the politics inside, were as enlightened as the outside!
