Before moving on to Quebec City, we would spend more time photographing the streets of Montreal. We found the people to be mostly friendly, and of course we also need to remind ourselves of the world that we live in, and there will never be the perfect situation.
Right below the rooster you can see parked cars. This is the parking lot we pulled into. There was a man standing in it and he directed my sister who who was driving, to a particular parking space. The space was right beside a wall, so I exited the car to let her park properly, also the night before she had paid for the parking, so I decided to take this turn and pay.
On stepping out of the car, the man approached me asking how long we would be staying. The parking was $6 for and hour, and since I wasn’t sure how long we would be staying I decided to pay him for 2 hours. Somehow as I spoke to him asking him questions things were not making sense to me, but besides my better judgement, I reached into my handbag, taking wallet in hand and I paid him $12 for two hours. Even as I was handing him the money I sensed something was wrong, yet I handed it over.
I then watched him walk away to see if he would go into the little hut in the parking lot where the workers would sit. He did walked up to the hut, but he kept right on walking—into the crowded Montreal streets. Then I knew for sure I was scammed. It could have turned out much worse, so I am thankful to God for keeping me safe through that deceptive exchange. We later realized that no one was in the hut, but there were machines where we had to pay for our parking.

Habitat 67, the building above, is supposedly on of the most recognized buildings in Montreal.
