=======================================================================================================
Some already thirst relieved construction workers hung around the Corona Extra kiosk while their buddies waited in line to get a plastic glass of their favorite Mexican beer.

The scene is on Crescent Street two weeks ago during the annual Grand Prix weekend when some construction workers took their lunch break from their work at some local construction site consuming a little bit of brew.

Although I am uncertain whether these guys were construction workers they definitely look like some then again, they may have been factory workers however, whatever they were maybe there should be some concern regarding security at their work site because booze can interfere in safety.

Refreshing out-of-bottle experience is having ice-cold Molson brewski during hot, muggy, day on bench enjoying great annual West Island Blues Festival music.

=======================================================================================================
A refreshing out-of-bottle experience is having a cold Molson brewski, on a hot, muggy, Saturday afternoon sitting on aluminum bench listening to great music at annual West Island Blues Festival.

“A picture is worth a thousand words” goes the overused yet true statement and you only can only imagine yourself sitting there enjoying the ambiance and excitement at this free music fest or similar one meanwhile, knowing that your thirst is quenched by a cold one (beer) in a clear soft plastic glass.

The weather proved to be ideal last Saturday despite the doom and gloom radio and TV forecasts predicting a heatwave enveloping Montreal making life unbearably hot and very sticky meanwhile, also threatening a violent thundershower or worst.

The event turned out to be wonderful and the crowds attending it were not disappointed with a fantastic venue featuring many favorites playing some awesome blues, rock and roll, and a folk song by a senior Quebec government cabinet minister.

Motley camera toting amateurs gang descend creating total digital madness trying to photograph famous Dwane Dixon Band on West Island Blues Festival stage.

It seemed like every one of them had similar expensive camera equipment, a battery packed Canon or Nikon with huge telephoto lens capped with large tooth shading tube designed to limit or eliminate errant sunlight, should there be any, mitigating in the quality of their digital images.

As my picture shows, enhanced face and upper torso shots appear to be in vogue for this bunch competing with each other positioning themselves in middle of field in front of the stage for their shots.

The scene was the West Island Blues Festival 14th edition last Saturday June 17, 2017, an annual event to raise money for a host of worthy local charitable groups, the famous Dwane Dixon band was on stage playing songs from their fantastic “Working Man Blues’ album.

Bumble Bee Approved Blossom

Mountain Cornflower is Bumble Bee approved and loved attractive, robust, invasive, weedy, high yield nectar producing plant.

Knapweed “Mountain Cornflower” is a Bumble Bee approved blossom known for abundant nectar produced that naturally attracts many insect pollinators such as bees.

=======================================================================================================
This Mountain Cornflower (Centaurea Triumfettii) is a Bumble Bee approved blossom known for abundant nectar produced which naturally attracts many insect pollinators such as bees.

Centaurea Triumfettii is a plant belonging to genus Centaurea herbaceous species of thistle-like flowering plants from the Asteraceae family of knapweeds that are very robust and tend to dominate adjoining areas of landscapes where they grow, I know this from personal experience in our backyard flower garden.

When these are in blossom in May I’ve noticed a lot of insects like bees including the Bumble Bee regularly visiting and extracting the high nectar content meanwhile, picking up pollen however, another insect I don’t like or want also visits in abundance,  ants including the black carpenter ants.

Squarrose Knapweed is another name used to describe this  herbaceous perennial plant growing 30–60 centimetres (12–24 in) high and its flowers normally last until August.

As my picture shows, its inner flowers are bright purple while the outer ones azure blue or deep mauve, a very attractive combination then again, many very common invasive weeds also have similar attributes going for them as experience has shown.

Wolff Black Triumph

"Toto" Wolff signature adorns Mercedes-AMG Black Series sedan in triump over company's 2015 products over international rivals.

Signature of “Toto” Wolff head of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, maker of AMG Black Series products 2015 triumph over company’s international rivals both on Grand Prix F1 circuits and city streets.

=======================================================================================================
“Toto Wolff Montreal 2015 #1” adorns sedans black composite fibre spoiler probably signed following triumph achieved two years ago by Mercedes-AMG over international rivals during the Canadian Grand Prix.

The signer is Torger Christian “Toto” Wolff head of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, commonly known as AMG, the high-performance division wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG headquartered in Affalterbach, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

That year international sports media and others criticized Mercedes for failing to win in Monaco something that also happened again in 2017 however, undeterred the excellent Mercedes-Benz  team totally wiped out the competition in Montreal on sizzling the hot Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve track on Sunday, June 11.

Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas blasted to incredible one-two, the Silver Arrows’ a first such amazing combination finish for this year proving once again that “lightening can strike twice in the same place”.

These excellent professionals never gave up despite a poor showing earlier in Monaco and intense media criticism like last time, winning the Canadian GP again only with a vengeance.

The charcoal grey sedan in my picture appears to be a AMG Black Series “V8 Biturbo” car tested by Motor Trend magazine attaining 0-60 mpg in 3.2 seconds, and doing a quarter mile attaining 129.8 mph in 11.1 seconds.

The Black Series cars available only as 2 door version are street legal although awesomely high-powered with superior handling and traction combined with refinements in aerodynamic design and weight reduction capable of previously mentioned performance.

Focus of Interest

Their focus of interest, the water-color painting of solitary red-yellow fruit hanging from a branch in the foreground surrounded by many tan and green shade leaves while in the dark background on right lurk two more.

The venue was an art exhibition to inaugurate a new neighborhood art gallery called Atelier D’art Métèque I recently visited where some graduating students participating in a local YMCA sponsored art course using water colors as the medium showed off their session’s works.

I was checking things out meanwhile, taking photos of individual and groups of framed art works when fortunately my digital camera captured someone’s hand and their extended finger pointing at that fruit picture, allowing me material for this post.

Looking at my own digital image, I kinda like the focus of their interest because it does somehow stand out from the others on that wall although at least one other picture on the top right,  a winter scene, seems worthy challenger to me.

Shattered Polish

Driver-side car mirror lies shattered in field, small bits missing from high polish surface perhaps result of a car wreck.

Passenger-side car mirror lies shattered in field, small bits missing from its high polish surface desperately trying to reflect the deep blue cloudless sky above it.

A passenger-side car mirror lies shattered, small bits missing from its high polish surface desperately trying to reflect the deep blue cloudless sky above it while resting abandoned in field oblivious to traffic on busy Sources boulevard nearby.

The high impact black plastic mirror from a late model compact car perhaps, the result of a recent wreck forever parting it from its car hurled away flying to come to rest in a scrub grass, weeds, and small stone field.

Then again, it could have been an act of some vandalism where a nasty perp simply broke and ripped the mirror off from the car passenger-side door then carried it away purposely to toss it in that field, who know?

Lucky Taper

Sleek formula 1 race car by Honda named Lucky has taper very evident right up front in at least two places.

British-American Racing Honda formula 1 race car named Lucky exhibited on Peel Street last Friday has taper very evident right up front in at least two places.

=======================================================================================================
British-American Racing Honda formula 1 car Lucky exhibited on Peel Street in Montreal during last Friday lead up to the famous Grand Prix race shows evident taper right up front in at least two places.

The sleek car named Lucky perhaps, because it was fortunate in winning a race or maybe just to ensure that it had everything covered regarding any superstitions that would have prevented it to be in the winning circle who knows!

I was lucky last Friday morning to have great weather for my visit to the Grand Prix warm up festivities going on downtown and discovered how the whole scene was different this year perhaps, owing to certain tragic world events.

It was slightly overcast making it perfect for pictures like this one also it was moderately warm just the way I hoped it to be, finally when I arrived at the scene the crowds still had not showed up making things almost ideal.

This year compared to my last visit Peel Street added as another sealed off venue for exhibits including a large go-cart track and several virtual reality car race kiosks as well as a type of theater where you take your seat facing a huge screen and experiencing the feel inside a formula car meanwhile, viewing actual race footage taken by a multitude of professional drivers in actual Grand Prix races.

Loud surround sound and seat vibrations felt mimicking being inside a formula car while its wheels traveled over race track surfaces.

The experience while sitting in your seat made for a very exciting time particularly when coupled and synchronized with viewing on that big screen out in front of you, actual tires and car debris tearing off and flying around following a crash by cars into walls or each other made it so real that it was scary!

=======================================================================================================
Six identical looking automatons infiltrate 2017 Montreal Prix celebrations executing Republic Grand Army clone order 151XD, their special mission to blend in unnoticed in the festivities while preparing Earth’s invasion.

After positioning themselves on platform of their starship’s time warp machine, a wormhole window, transported the clone crew to their precise destination into the universe’s past.

The Republic Council wary of certain inaccuracies existing in their massive data base regarding the planet’s vulnerabilities and defenses sent their clone scout crew to carefully investigate and verify known information afterwards return home for consultation, more instructions and preparation.

Eons earlier, sophisticated fake news systems hazed reality enough that even the Republic’s super sophisticated trinano-quantum servers couldn’t distinguish fact from fiction creating the need for clone order 151XD mission.

Unknown to our advanced clone crew, Canada, the province of Quebec, and Montreal, are already infested by secret alien entities involved in controlling Canadian society through a treacherous banking system abetted by powerful fake news and propaganda media network supporting their agents to corrupt government.

The aliens usurped fiscal and political power through cunning deceit enslaving millions of citizens to a wicked international banking cartel system remotely accessed and run by several mother ships scattered over the globe, the nearest and most influential one located deep in New York City.

The natty baseball related mural decorates a back-wall of a building on south side of Saint Catherine several blocks east of Saint Laurence boulevard and is just one of several street art works enveloping a parking lot.

The fair size parking space surrounded on three sides with more very interesting street art work by three different “arteestas” each with their own design style depicting renderings of their own creative minds on three different buildings’ back-walls.

As my picture shows other less talented individuals have added their graffiti “tags” to a nearby metal post and its orange-colored cement base fortunately the mural was not touched.
