Saturday Photo: Early Morning Reflections

Morning is a good time for reflecting on  things, and for years I have used a morning walk for doing just that.

But Friday I took my camera along to go one step further, and reflect on physical reflection.  I found these lovely ones  in the pond in Parc St. Viateur.  It is one of two parks made about 90 years ago from the watercourse which once ran down the northern side of Mount Royal and spread out into swamps that no one wanted to build on. 

Converting waste land into parks is something that developers frequently, with mixed results. But here the parks have become lovely havens for city dwellers.

The pavillion in the middle of the pond is used as a warming house in the winter when the frozen pond becomes a a skating rink.  The other building is a highschool built by the Clercs de St-Viateur in the early 1960s.
