Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Neat photo essay!

I assume you take these with a cell phone camera? For the first time ever, I found myself thinking, yeah, it could be cool to always have a camera with me--but I'd have to buy a different phone.

Thanks!

Reminds me of visiting there a few years ago on a rainy June weekend. I loved the way you'd find a condom store next to a shop selling kids' bikes on St. Denis. Thanks for the tour!

i loled at one of the pictures. anyways.. nice post.. those shots are also great too.. cheers!

Hi Kristin - thanks, glad you liked the post. No, I don't have a camera phone, I don't think you could get this high resolution with one. My camera is tiny, though - it's a Nikon CoolPix S200 and I've been very happy with it.

Hi Leslee - yeah, that was a good visit, and I'm glad you got to see how mixed-up Montreal tends to be.

Hi Tudor, thanks for visiting, glad you liked the photos and were amused.

For a different kind of easter basket! LOL Hilarious.

ah, deep nostalgia from when I walked down that street one freezing December when I first visited Montréal... I remember that book shop, in case it's the same one... got lots of amazing philosophy books there.
