Irresistible Montreal

Montreal is wonderful.

And the people are some of the nicest and most helpful to visitors that I have ever met.

Beautiful. I love the lighting and the perspective on this cathedral.

I have attended services in Christ Church on St. Catherine Street. That is also a beautiful church.

First time replying to this thread (after a few visits), and my first impression of Montreal looks truly stunning! I truly love your Notre Dame Cathedral shots a lot, especially the black and white version, and I adore the city center blanketed in fog shot: now I can tell myself that San Francisco isn't the only city covered in fog at times! As for Windsor Station, those towers look really lovely that I could spend my day walking through the area, not only to check out the nearby square, rail station, and buildings, but also trains and buses that run through the station as well. Finally, for your overview shot, let me tell you: I truly want to go to Montreal because it may not be as crowded or busy as New York City, but the lovely skyline next to the shore makes me inspired and want to tour the city around by foot, bus, and subway.

Truly love your shots, my friend! Keep those wonderful skyline and neighborhood shots coming!

Great photos! Of all the cities in North America that I haven't been to, Montreal is the one I want to visit most badly.

Wooow. You're indeed a great photographer and Montreal is nice. But the lack of people on the pictures bothered me.
