The Big “Owe”, AKA: The Olympic Stadium

I was told by somebody, ahem, Asawa…. that there were some Penguins outside of the Biodome after 5pm this evening.  So, we all moseyed on down to the Big “Owe”; yes, that big white elephant in the East end of Montreal.

For God’s sake, i don’t know how many times the media has told us that the Olympic Stadium has finally been paid off.  Just the other week was the last time i heard it.  Over the past 10 years, i have heard at least two reports about having paid it off.  So, my question is, have we paid off this goddamn thing already??  Only in Quebec.

Of course, when we got to where the Penguins were supposed to be, there were no Penguins.  I am assuming that they were all deep in a fish dinner comma.  Oh well, it did not stop me from taking out the camera to take some photos, even of the ground – you will see which one that is.

Below photos taken with X-Pro1/35mm.

Dreaming Of Summer Flowers

I am tired of winter.  The snow and the cold can just go away.

For the past couple of weeks, i have been dreaming of summer.  Just the thought of not having to put multiple layers on, bulky boots, bulky jackets….. ahhhhhhhh, bliss!  All i want to be able to do, is put on a pair of shoes and go out.

I really am living in the wrong part of the world.
