Description

Date/Time: November 17, 1999, 2:15 p.m.
The scene is overcast in Notman's view, but there is direct sunshine on some buildings. I decided to take many exposures on a partly cloudy day, and luckily I was able to work under the same weather conditions. To line up my shot I used the line of Sherbrooke Street as well as the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, which at first glance seems the same but has actually been extended. The feeling today is much more alive and commercialized, compared to 1915. Both Notman and I captured men of a similar age walking past the same spot at the same moment.
