The White Cross

Posted by
DAVE ID (Montreal, Canada) on 13 September 2007 in Miscellaneous.

Cote Des Neiges Cemetery Series: Taken on the last day before a special law forcing the caretakers back to work during a union dispute. The whole cemetery has been left without care, not to mention that hundreds of bodies are left in freezers unburied, leaving the city in a crisis. I was also escorted outside the cemetery for taking pictures without a permit. As with everywhere else in Montreal, photography is a crime.

On an artistic level, the abandonment of the grounds leave us with visual treasures.

Such a humble White Cross, all weathered, tattered and yet strong looking... I always get mushy around Sept, since the towers fell... I can't help it, it left a deep mark on me.
