Elevators are extremely difficult to photograph. I think I need to get a special lens.
Unfortunately, I didn’t keep any notes when taking the pictures.
So while I have some vague memories of where these are, I’m not 100% certain
100% of the time, and as a consequence prefer to leave them all unidentified
Instead of identifying some of them, and not identifying others.
After these, which are just a tiny, tiny selection of elevators in Montreal
I might have to start taking pictures of escalators that are not in the metro.
There are probably fewer escalators than elevators by a factor of at least 10, if not 100.
Which would mean, theoretically, that I might be able to get snapshots of all the escalators in town.
That all being said, I could also try to find a very wide angle lens
And use some website like this
Combined with a spreadsheet
To actually enable me to photograph all the elevators in town in an organized fashion.
But somehow, I don’t think that beyond the concept of paying attention to things that we normally don’t pay attention to
That there would be any real demand, desire or interest in compiling a pictorial database of the Elevators in Montreal.
That all being said, are there any quote, cool or interesting, unquote elevators that you think are particularly noteworthy?
201 Notre Dame O would have been a good one to catch before it was turned into “luxurious living spaces.”
And are there any express elevators in town?
And if I were to do this seriously I probably should also snap pictures of the panel
And the plate to identify the manufacturer.
it sounds like an awful lot of work.
Let’s see if I get the wide angle lens first.
And then we’ll see what happens.
