Tulips for Tuesday

In Downtown Montreal, there is a cathedral that stands in sharp contrast to the steel and glass skyscrapers surrounding it. There is a huge mall underneath the cathedral as well. Each year, the place explodes with tulips. I took all of these shots yesterday at around two in the afternoon.

This was my favorite shot, with the guy feeding the pigeons, and the kids looking on behind him.

It took about five minutes before I could get this shot free of passersby.

My damn shoe is in this picture.

Then again, maybe I like this shot best. (you can click all the pictures for screen filling versions)

Happy spring!

Beautiful pictures...I would have been tempted to take my shoes off and do a little "tiptoeing through...."

Thanks for the bitter reminder that I have no tulips this year, thanks to Bambi and his mother.

Beautiful! I love the shot of the church with the skyscraper, it's a great depiction of Montreal. I was there once for a day and it is such a wonderful blend of old and new...

I so want to add Catherine Zeta-Jones in the bottom photo, and it could be part of the Elizabeth Arden Red Door campaign. Love the tulips.

oh dear,
we've already broken 100 degrees here in AZ. One pays a price to live in paradise. But I miss the whole concept of having grass on ones lawn.

Montreal is so great in the spring/summer. Wish I was there now and not in this shitty cubicle working on shitty computer programs.

I like the Tulips With Shoe photo best.

And I'm so oblivious, I wouldn't have noticed the shoe if you hadn't mentioned it. :)

I'm down with the red door one, although they are all very lovely!! And in deep contrast with the wind and sleet we are having the past couple of days in southern alberta-blech! Thanks for sharing the spring blooms! Devo

I didn't even see the shoe until you pointed it out. I thought it was a beetle's ass.

I like the first one the best. Awesome camera.

Uh, a MALL under a CHURCH. This may be the closest to Jesus as I'll ever come in my adult life.
