Duck, duck, GOOSE...
Laval, QC, August 2008
I'd like to continue this week's Thematic Photographic theme, watery, with a photo that suggests quiet. When I was a kid, just a few blocks away from where this photo was taken, I used to walk - often alone - to the bakery on Sunday mornings. My parents would give me money, and I was responsible for buying bagels and related fixings for brunch.
I'm old enough that I remember the walk down the main drag of our 'burb was a quiet one. The road, usually so busy during the week that I'd never be allowed to cross it on my own then, was nearly empty in this era before Sunday shopping and 24-hour groceries. I remember this as a quiet day when the world took a bit of a breather before diving back into the coming week.
Peeking over the edge of a deserted bridge over a small waterway and taking this picture in absolute silence brought those Sunday mornings right back to me. I kind of wish we had Sundays back the way they used to be.
