To be surprised, to wonder, is to begin to understand. This is the sport, the luxury, special to the photographer. The gesture characteristic of this tribe consists in looking at the world with eyes wide open in wonder. Everything in the world is strange and marvelous to well-open eyes. This faculty of wonder leads the photographer through life in the perpetual ecstasy of the visionary. His special attribute is the wonder of the eyes. Hence it was that the ancients gave Minerva her owl, the bird with ever-dazzled eyes. (with apologies to Jose Ortega y Gasset who was talking about "the intellectual man" in his 1930 book, Revolt of the Masses) CONTACT: click link symbol at upper right for my website with email address.

Thank you! This is the main gate to Dawson College in Montreal.

But it does look as if it had once been a 'temple' or some kind of religious building -- in fact, I thought the whole complex looked as if it may have once been occupied by a religious order. Anyone know? Marilyn?
