I've been having a lovely time in Old Montreal this week, and they are beginning to decorate for the holiday season. These lovely lit up trees - this one in Place d'Armes between the Maisonneuve Monument and the Notre Dame Basilica - have a dripping motion which is really magical and I would have been able to show you if only it had occurred to me before today (back home now) to use the video setting on my pocket camera. I'm afraid you'll have to use your imagination for this magical effect. as I never think to use video.

"The church's Gothic Revival architecture is among the most dramatic in the world; its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, the stained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal."
