…but not in a very positive way: Saturday, which was St. Patrick’s Day, we went downtown around noon. The city seemed …silent — almost sleepy. We parked the car and walked in to Market Square. That’s one of the two shopping centres in the downtown area, and where most shows and performances take place. There was nothing … no trace of anything either. So we sat down there for a while, Gerry decided to go up to the library and check some stuff, I moseyed around with my camera for a while.
Gerry found out, in the library, that the St. Patrick’s celebrations had taken place last weekend?! I will never understand why.
This wasn’t all bad, though. I finally got around to shooting two things that I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time. Most of the times when I walk through Market Square, I’m on my way to the library and certainly not carrying the big camera, but now I did.
This is a piece of art called Sea Forms. I’ve liked it since I first laid eyes on it:
This one is kind of funny and sometimes confusing, when there are lots of people [real people] in there … they look almost real. Usually, when I go there, it’s quite crowded, but this time I could get a clear shot of it…
After that, we just drove around a little … saw three young eagles playing in the sky … then we went to AJ’s for supper! That was really scrumptious and our St. Patrick’s Day wasn’t wasted at all!
