Montreal, QC
October 2009

About this photo: It's orange. Well, at least part of it is. If you're feeling in a particularly orange mood, Thematic Photographic hopes to hear from you. Right this way...
Montreal isn't known for being pedestrian-friendly. Its drivers, legendary across the continent for their often misplaced aggressiveness, tend to see the average biped as an annoyance, something standing between them and the cold beer waiting at home.

Like many cities, Montreal's been installing timers and pedestrian lights at major intersections. They won't stop a two-ton missile from plowing through the crosswalk, but they're better than nothing. And they can be entertaining when you're waiting for the munchkins to get back to the car so you can get on your way.

Your turn: It's been a while since we captioned. Sometimes, life gets in the way. It's still in the way, of course, but I figured now would be as proper a time as any to restart Caption This. If you've got a witty title for this pic, click the comment link and have at it. Head over here for background on how Caption This works.

About our last Caption This photo: I posted it September 20th - a lifetime ago - so I'm under no illusions that anyone even remembers this sad scene of a building in the midst of demolition. But in the hope that folks are ready to tune back in, here are our honorable menschens:
  • Jean: "Door to nowhere."
  • Emme Rogers: "Urban genocide."
  • Thom: Destruction for progress."
Steve Gallow takes it for "My door is always open for you." I like how you can read that in any number of ways. Steve is in the midst of a year-long personal challenge to not only post a photo per day, but to explore the lessons learned each time out. His photos are wonderful, and the stories behind each one will keep you coming back for more. Please drop by and congratulate him.
