The Place d'Armes monument to Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the work by Louis-Philippe H√©bert.
This figure is Closse Rapha√ęl-Lambert. Born in Saint-Denis de Mogues in France. He came to Canada with Maisonneuve in 1642, and was made sergeant-major of the garrison of Montreal, acting as notary in times of peace. He became noted for his skill in fighting the Native tribes.
This is one of five figures which adorn the base. I took this mid morning 8ish, overcast skies. I liked the similarity of color between the building and sculpture yet the contrast in texture. The building did have a few florescent lights showing through the windows. I edited these out. They distracted me. I figure with the right lens or filter they could have been minimized.
