From the Archives: Québec
From the Archives is a series where I share photos of a particular location that I took in years past (as in, before I started this blog in July 2013). In today's post, I will share photos I took in the Canadian province of Québec. Click here to read previous installments.
In Québec City, charming architecture and cobblestone streets make for beautiful photographs. Above is Notre-Dame des Victoires Church at dusk.
Horse drawn carriages, like this one near the parliament building, give an old-world feel to the city.
Inside the ornate Notre-Dame de Québec Church.
I took this photo before a night time ghost tour of Québec City.
A photo I took of a building under the full moon during the tour.
The crown jewel of hotels in Quebéc City is the Fairmont Château Frontenac.
A view looking down at the narrow pedestrian streets and the St. Lawrence River.
Whimsical cut outs hang between buildings in the streets of Québec.
I love the trompe-l'œil painting on the side of this building.
A look upwards toward the Château Frontenac.
Moving southward to Montréal brings us this view of the city from Parc Mont-Royal.
A colorful sign at the Marché Jean Talon encouraging shoppers to try the tomatoes.
Montréal's Notre Dame Basilica is probably one of my favorite pieces of architecture in the city.
I took the above and below photos from the top of the Pointe-à-Callière Museum. Below you can see Notre Dame from a different perspective.
This street in Old Montréal could just as easily pass for a European locale.
On the more modern side of town, the Marie-Reine-du-Monde Cathedral looks a bit out of place.
Stay tuned for some new photos from the province of Québec this summer as I visit some new locations.
