Where: Montreal, Canada
Between Meeting: Day Before Epson Print Academy
St. Laurent runs through different ethnic neighborhoods that developed over decades of immigration. I stayed on the bus for a few miles and enjoyed watching the neighborhoods change character based on their influences from French, Jewish, Portuguese, Italian and Chinese cultures.
I also stayed on the bus because the light was flat and blah.
With the light not improving, I got off the bus and looked for tight pictures where I could crop out the dull. Right there at the bus stop, I saw this optical illusion. A man was waiting at the shelter with a horizontal orange line painted on the exterior of two glass walls. His position sitting on a bench between the glass walls, with a vertical seam on the glass closest to camera, simultaneously reminded me of both M.C. Escher, and a basic geometry lesson of parallel lines and bisecting angles.
