I'd prepared a few posts before we left home - most of those have been posted - but today I'm on a computer where I can upload photos and I want to share some pictures from Montreal.
We took a walk through part of the huge cemetery on Mount Royal, looking for two particular grave sites (which we found!), and in our wanderings I saw this wonderful Celtic cross gravestone. I love Celtic interlacing and patterns.
We went to see an exhibition of work by Dale Chihuly at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Eye-poppingly gorgeous!!! He works in blown and molded glass and the works are huge (although composed of small parts). We were enchanted.
|Not sure if the title is Sun or The Sun, but it's spectacular!|
|This is but a small portion of a piece that filled an entire room at the gallery |
and looks like an underwater landscape. I loved these green and black tendrils.
|Part of a large ceiling! |
There were pads so you could lie on the floor and look up at it.
I thought it would make a marvelous floor too, to walk over.
|One of a series of what he calls 'chandeliers'. |
There are also 'towers' that sit on the floor.
Tomorrow we're off to Toronto for two days, and will visit the ROM's special exhibit on Mesopotamia.
