Covid-19, May 2020: It's Truly Springtime

Gone is the 100-metres-from-the-front-door stipulation that shaped last month's photoessay. Without this restraint, a handful of pictures from nearby streets are now included.

As talk about easing covid-19 restrictions vacillates between action plans and stark reality, most Montrealers while spending more time outdoors, remain true to the principle of social distancing. Every year, May is filled with anticipation of Mother Nature stirring from her slumber, but it would seem that this spring, people are more alive to the small wonders around them.

If only for a moment, may this look at what we typically consider normal and familiar bring you pleasure, comfort, and even a sense of optimism.
