The sharp-eyed Montrealers among you might recognize this street corner. It's Pare and Decarie (Google Maps), looking east, and the three phone booths are right at the edge of the Gibeau Orange Julep (sorry, OJ) parking lot. Head here for more background on why this place, despite the weeds poking wildly through the broken asphalt, is nothing short of magical, and why it matters so much to our family.
In a way it's kind of poignant that this very urbanized corner of the planet still has a trio of old phone booths at the edge of the parking lot, because like the restaurant itself, they remind us of a lost era. On this perfect summer's afternoon, our now-much-taller kids were astute enough to not crinkle their noses at something that was clearly so obsolete. They instead walked right up and explored - much more fun that way. And much better photography as a result.
Your turn: Take a picture that suggests "threesies" - and post it to your blog or website. Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. For added fun tweet it out using the #ThematicPhographic hashtag. Visit other participants to raise the level of shared photographic community-ness (OMG, my high school English teacher would be having a fit by now) and come on back through the week to see what everyone's up to. If you'd like more background on how Thematic, our weekly photo-sharing/learning/personal-growth activity, works, click here. Have fun with it!
