That's a really good one. Cutting off l'Altoria was smart, it gives the impression it is much taller than it really is (as it should be). Possibly the classiest street in Montreal.

Love the view of McGill street from Silo #5. What a grandiose street.

I also like how Le St-M turned out. Not classy or elegant, but a respectable little tower.

Montreal is fortunate in having so many streets/neighborhoods exhibiting the layers of time.

This street only just recently felt like a canyon, Richmond looking east from near Spadina.

I was looking forward to Studio from their End of Days style advertising but it's turning out pretty dreary.

To be fair it was a dreary day when I took that picture, with my phone.

Regardless, it forms a sweet street-wall.

the base is supposed to be coloured, I don't think they have gotten around to painting it yet.

I'm really impressed by the bike lane on that stretch of Richmond. Saw lots of cyclists using it when I drove by (in my big bad polluting car).

I'm kinda surprised that Rob Ford didn't find a way to eliminate these bike paths.
