The other side of the city.

When I’m not photographing the trees and small oases of nature available throughout Montréal, I’m capturing evidence of the humans of St. Henri.

Except for the photo in the métro, all photos were taken during my walks with Yoshi.  All are from the last three weeks.

Seen one morning while walking Yoshi on the bike path.

The Listen Bird has appeared around St. Henri for years.

The van is for Identification Judiciaire.  The police car is in front of the crime scene.  Someone was packing up his tripod across the street.

Crime Scene.  Apparently from a bar fight that spilled (pun intended) onto the street.  Nobody was killed.

I saw several fire engines this week.

The police have been wearing camouflage and other non uniform pants for over a year in some kind of union protest.  This guy in the metro is being removed, and to be fair, in my observations and from talking to the locals, the cops are not aggressive with the panhandlers and homeless people even when they move them on or arrest them.  The locals usually cooperate.
