I haven’t had the time to walk the streets of my favorite city in a while. And even though they were calling for cold, wind and rain, figured I’d call up a friend and pound the pavement looking for some interesting photo ops. The recent time change has it that the sun has already set by the time we are good to go for our walks, so many more night photos coming. Which is fine by me, I absolutely love shooting at night. The colours, the contrasts,… makes a city come alive!
We started our walk near the old port of Montreal. But figured we’d head towards downtown on some not normally traveled streets as this time of the year doesn’t have that many tourists in the old port (tourists are fun to take photos of, and as they are happy to be snapping away, they usually don’t mind if you take their photo… they usually think you are a tourist as well hehe). Old Montreal always has some great architecture to shoot with 🙂
Crossed over into the more downtown area where things are a bit gloomier 🙂
And as we started to make our way back to the metro to head home, it started to rain! My camera isn’t water proof, so I had an umbrella with me juuuuust in case. Love how the rain and wet streets create dynamic images 🙂
And because ya know.. .there is always something going on in the city that requires firetrucks…
