THE CHURCHES ARE READY ... FOR THE NEW BORN!



THE CHURCHES ARE READY ... FOR THE NEW BORN! 
By Bernard Bujold -
Everywhere in the world churches are preparing for the arrival of their savior! The symbol of the crib is used by most and this is the case of the Cathedral Marie Reine du Monde in Montreal. The replica of a small barn with the donkey and the ox is installed as every year and if Marie and Joseph are already there with the shepherds, it will be necessary to wait until December 24 to welcome the newborn ... 
Have a good wait!

THE GIFT FROM THE VISITORS



THE GIFT FROM VISITORS … 
By Bernard Bujold -
My faithful dog Ulysses convinced Santa’s elves (THE VISITORS) that the best way to seduce me and convince me to host them until Christmas is to offer me, on occasion, nice little gifts … This morning, Tuesday, December 5, 2017, the three elves arrived at lunch with a book about Donald Trump: the brand new Corey Lewandoski: LET TRUMP BE TRUMP. 
One could say that I appreciated their gesture and I even invited them to share my lunch …

THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY ACCORDING TO ANNIE LEIBOVITZ


THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY ACCORDING TO ANNIE LEIBOVITZ -
By Bernard Bujold - 
I always been a fan of Annie Leibovitz as a photographer and I read her new book PORTRAIT 2005-2016 with interest. In particular the story about her and Donald Trump... 
Annie is a deep fan and a close friend of Hillary Clinton and she was sure that Hillary would be President in 2016. So sure that she planned for days and days how to photograph her after her presidential victory and what place Hillary would occupy in Leibovitz new book! 
Surprise: Hillary lost and Donald won the election... 
Conclusion: « Never plan a photography in advance of the moment...» 
Note: My real « mentor » in phototography is Yousuf Karsh from Ottawa.

VISIT AT THE MONTREAL MUSEUM OF FINE ART


VISIT AT THE MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS OF MONTREAL - November 2017 -
By Bernard Bujold- 
It was a time when my home was decorated in western style, when I attended the world of horse and I collected Rémington art... 
If I changed my life and fashion decoration, I continue to enjoy the western spirit and I wanted to visit the exhibition of the Museum of Fine Arts of Montreal: "ONCE UPON A TIME... THE WESTERN"; a new frontier in Art and Film. 
Lovers of western movies will adore the exhibition of the Museum of Fine Arts and one could even say that this presentation would fit very well in a film festival like Cannes or elsewhere...
Unfortunately for me, only one Remington sculpture and it is not the most beautiful of his work! 
Good visit at the museum ...
