Somewhere in Montreal …
Here’s another one from frequent contributor conniechiwa who writes: “Here’s a photo I took of someone photographing the Ottawa River at the Parliament grounds in Ottawa, Canada. This area is behind the Parliament building.”
Here’s a photo from contributor fortuitous faery‘s Niagara falls trip last month: fellow tourists snapping away while on board the misty “Maid of the Mist!” Snap away, fortuitous faery, and keep on sending us your efforts for our enjoyment!
They were taking a picture of their friends … but she looked at me. And so I’m invisible no more. Sigh. A remnant of my vacation in Montreal last summer. Here’s another one of them … Montreal is such a beautiful city.
… and whistle while you’re at it too … a remnant from my trip to Montreal last summer.
Either a Japanese or Korean tourist inside the Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal, most probably taking a picture of the altar:
Fellow tourists taking pictures at Toronto’s harborfront about three weeks ago. (Did you know that Crocs¬Æ is of Canadian (Quebec) origin?) This is the background that they were trying to include in their picture: And this is the reason why they posed in this particular spot: I was actually waiting for them to finish so [...]
We were having a wonderful dinner at a fancy French restaurant in Montreal when outside, a kid suddenly entertained us by dancing to the tune of the street performer. Of course everyone was delighted, and the kid’s mom took pictures … a lot of pictures. And I am so glad that she did, because I [...]
He seems satisfied with his capture …
A fellow-tourist on the hop-on, hop-off bus tour of Toronto. Going more into details of my Canada trip during the last two weeks. When I am visiting a city only for a few days and if I don’t know anyone who could tour me around, the best way for me to see that particular city [...]
Lakeshore Drive Scene While driving through N. Lake Shore Drive on our way home from Canada yesterday afternoon, I saw this group of soccer moms and dads watching their kids play soccer. One of them was photographing. I hurriedly took a shot of them … the cyclist came into the viewfinder just as I pressed [...]
My most favorite place that we visited during this trip, hands down, is Quebec City. I love the old world ambiance and yet you also have the feeling that this soon will rise and become one of the top world class cities in the world, like Barcelona after Franco and the Olympics. It seems like [...]
We are now on our way back to Chicago … it has been a wonderful two weeks roaming the southeastern part of Canada — basically three cities in two weeks – Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City and back to Toronto (with a side trip to Ottawa). The picture above is your humble servant taking a picture [...]
On our way back to Toronto from Montreal, we saw a sign for Ottawa, so we decided to take a detour and visit the capital of Canada … and have lunch there. This is a photographer photographing the parliament building. That’s all.
During our last day in Quebec City, another Quebecois friend who we also just met took us around for more sightseeing particularly to the Montmorency Falls just outside the city. This is a spectacular falls higher than Niagara but narrower. The yellowish color of the water is due to the high iron content of the [...]
Yesterday, a friend who we just met in Quebec City drove us to three of her favorite small villages near Quebec City along the St. Lawrence River – Neuville, Deschambault and another one that has the prettiest street in all of Quebec (according to Globe and Mail, a daily Toronto newspaper). The countryside is very [...]
We didn’t realize that we arrived in Quebec City in the midst of their 400th anniversary celebrations. That’s probably why we waited for about one hour for a taxi to briing us from the port to the our hotel. Oh, delete that, B and B. The hotels were full, so we had to settle for [...]
A boat with a load of photographers photographing on a cruise along the St. Lawrence River We left Montreal early in the morning today to catch a cruise on its last trip for the season along the St. Lawrence River to Quebec City. Our host in Montreal wanted us to experience the 400th anniversary of [...]
The last two days we spent seeing the sights of Montreal. Our host had arranged for her friends to drive us around the Montreal that they know. It was fun. Among the sights we saw were: Notre Dame Basilica Filipino tourists I met at the Notre Dame Basilica. One is a new Montreal resident while [...]
Last night, for want of better things to do, we spent the evening with Democrats Abroad in Montreal, watching the speech of Barack Obama. Great bunch. There were about 50 of them who attended … On the way there, I met some Filipino tourists from Toronto and New York photographing in the streets.
On our way from Toronto to Montreal, I saw this man on a cross bridge that spans Highway 401 that we were on. I thought it was odd because this was in the middle of nowhere. But when I zoomed in on him with my long lens, I realized why he was there … . [...]
No, I didn’t do this this time. But at least I caught one photographing . Here’s a wide-angle view. At the Niagara Falls, Canadian side, yesterday afternoon.
Photographing the skyline of Toronto Our first real day in Toronto yesterday consisted of taking a hop-on hop off bus tour around the city that included an hour cruise along the city’s water front and the Toronto islands. If you are spending only a few days in this city, this is the way to go. [...]
… for the 8th birthday celebration of my grand nephew, son of my niece who is videographing at the back. Carlo was actually born in Chicago, as my niece was a nurse in Stroger Hospital of Cook County where I also worked. I didn’t even know that she was working there! She was there for [...]
