Oh no, not true ashok. Trust me, you have an innate talent for photography, and it shows in your composition and choice of subject matter!

Did you used a tripod for your night pictures?

No, I did not use a tripod; I had to improvise most my shots that is why a lot of them came out blurry.

hehe, Thank although I do improvise a tripod on the scene. For instead, I would substituted a garbage bin as a tripod or the side of a lamp-post. I have even used the road as a tripod.

For the first picture, I anchored my camera on the beam, but I had to hold it firm so it will reduce the amount of movement; and the second photo I put it right on the floor.

I also put pressure so it limits the movement, maybe it helped. Anyway, some photos I took this weekend.

A few random shots by me. A difference in my photo this time is that I now give a title + a few sentences explaining the photos.

Molson Bank Building's Clock: I took very special interest in this clock. It looked really nice, and something rare in Montreal so I felt I should photograph it. It was a bit hard to photograph it because of the brightness of the clock. This was the shot I liked the most.

I came home, and tried to research the clock, but I was surprised to not find much about the clock or its origins. Maybe I will go into the building in the weekdays, and ask them directly or perhaps inquire at Heritage Montreal.

Decarie: The following photo is a series of photo I am trying to photo-document about the Decarie. I enjoyed expressways so much. I believe they the arteries of the cities, they make the city run at the speed it does.

I grew up in Cote Des Niege, and the Decarie has been always interesting to me. As a child, I enjoyed so much walking over the Decarie and standing one of its many bridges and looking at the car, but I never dare go across the Decarie to the NDG section. It is strange, but as a child, I have seen Decarie as a barrier between both these neighborhood in Montreal.

Decarie: Avenue Royalmount looking South: One of the reason I wanted to take this shot is to show our language. When I go into a different area outside of Quebec, the first thing I notice is the English signs, and so I thought it would be interesting to showcase signs where we have Rue and Chemins instead of Drive and Roads.

I took this shot because I like the angle so much, several years ago, I took a similar angled shot. You may visit it to see a comparison here: <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/ashokashok/399782999/in/photostream">www.flickr.com/photos/ashokashok/399782999/in/photostream</a>

De La Savane's 'Calcite': I love the metal sculpture in this station so much. One of the reason why I enjoy it so much is because the space in the station is normal to say the very least. It follows patterns and it keeps a low profile, then suddently, a burst into the space - it is the Calcite by sculpture Maurice Lemieux. It just gives the space a much more dynamic feel.
