Seasonal Transformation

Seasonal transformation is grey look, tons of fallen, brown, leaves, and bit of green moss for interesting contrast.

Seasonal transformation is evident by mostly grey, somber, look and tons of fallen brown, shriveled, leaves
littering the forest ground.

=================================================================================================
Seasonal transformation is evident by mostly grey somber look and tons of fallen brown shriveled leaves littering the ground shown in this forest scene it happens every year.

Fortunately in this forest green moss still covers exposed rocks and the bases of some trees giving an interesting contrast to this hardwood forest scene.

The scene is early November 2017 in an Eastern Townships forest south of the town of Magog, Quebec very close to the U.S. border.

This is my contribution for WP weekly photo challenge.

Natural Transformation

Natural transformation or biodegradation of leaves and twigs into rich black soil in progress.

Natural transformation already in progress shown in this image, dead leaves from forest trees biodegrading into rich black soil.

Also seen are dead twigs, a few freshly fallen leaves still retaining their color, and tiny white mushrooms nestled in the midst of it all.

Those tiny mushrooms aid the natural decomposition by feeding on the dead leaves and twigs after which they too will die and decompose enriching the forest soil.

This is my contribution for WP single word prompt:”TRANSFORMATION”.

Perfect Evening Crepes

Making perfect evening crepes seems what this young oriental chef is doing.

Making perfect evening crepes that is what this young oriental chef seems to be doing however, I’m just guessing.

===================================================================

Making perfect evening crepes that is what this young chef appears to be doing then again, I am just guessing because after all the eatery is oriental and I have no knowledge about this restaurant or its food.

A couple weeks ago while walking along Saint Catherine street heading west I happened on this scene and took a quick picture. I had been walking for bit now and approaching the old Forum now called the Pepsi Forum on the corner of Saint Catherine street and Atwater avenue where I would enter the local subway or ‘metro’ station as it is called here.

This part of Saint Catherine street has gone through quite a transformation during the last few decades and what I noticed was the beginnings of another ‘China town‘ or perhaps more correctly, ‘little Vietnam, or IndoChina. There seem to be a grouping of oriental eateries and stores, both Vietnamese and Cambodian, although more Vietnamese. They seem to start around Guy street and end just short of Atwater avenue.

Guy Street is a north-south street as is Atwater avenue located in downtown Montreal they both run at a right angle to Saint Catherine which runs east-west.

Graffiti Wall Saved

Leprechaun noticed green and saved this excellent graffiti wall art.

====================================================================
Perhaps a leprechaun noticed that touch of green and saved this excellent graffiti wall art or what is left of it heck, Saint Patrick’s day was quickly approaching and…well who knows?

I took this picture several weeks ago during the time I took pictures for my short video called “Montreal en Lumiere Festival“. It was on a wrecked wall of a building being gutted for transformation into a high-rise.

I made the picture because it piqued me why this little bit of wall was left and the rest torn down. It was only later, after I took the
picture and carefully viewed it, that I realized the wrecking ball destroyed another Montreal treasure, a graffiti masterpiece.

As you can see this is work by a very talented and creative ‘arteesta‘ on par to some of the mainstream artists and painters except his work is by a different medium. His work was with a paintball or spray can perhaps adding another degree of difficulty in creating art. You must notice that damage to this work was already done even before the wreckers came by neglect and various “tags” by untalented vandals.
