Highlights from a Sunday drive

We started with a late breakfast in Mile End (a mochacocochino = mocha made with coconut milk) and wound our way around the city, spending some time in Lachine walking along the canal. It wasn't a very bright day (excuse no.1) and so a lot of my pictures were a bit fuzzy. Also many were taken from the window of our car as we sped past the sights (excuse no.2). So, the last photo of the sunset would have been a lot nicer if I'd thought to get out of the car (um, we did pull over for that one) rather than take it through the cracked windshield. And then my batteries died (excuse no. 3). Anyway, it was a lovely day.

The last of the summer sun

A few short weeks ago, when it was still summer, I walked out my front door straight into the path of a sprinkler. I cupped my hand over my camera to protect it and then had fun taking pictures of the light dancing in the water droplets.
