Beautiful Spring Day

It was a beautiful day today, so decided to walk partway to the office. Brought my camera for a ride!! ;)
These were taken on Ste-Catherine Street which is one of the main streets in downtown Montreal. Lots of shops, a few churches and many restaurants!
Lots of posters of movies, shows are posted on boards where everyone can see them!

Loved this one - very dramatic!

Some graffiti...

A beautiful church on the way...

An old barbershop...

Wore my old running shoes so I wouldn't be in pain by the time I got to the office!

My reward when I got to my desk - a nice cup of coffee!! :)

These are lots of fun! Looks like you pass a lot of neat things on the way to work, did you ride a subway or train the rest of the way?
