That was a great tour. I love your eye for the gritty locals, especially the graffiti, it adds to a photo tour to see the not so touristy places too.

Hey Philippe, that was a really great selection of photos! Thanks!
Always made me sad to see that empty church and I am sad they are going to tear it down.

I think I'm in love with Montreal.

There are some social housing developments on your photos, right?

@ thomyork: don't be shy to post your pictures, we want to see it!

@ taller, better: thank you for you comments! I am trying a bit of everything!

@ plcmtat: try to go off the beaten path, all borough are pretty safe except on the north end but there is not too much to see here. Hope you will have great time!

@ dan98: I don't have specific settings ! It is from my new point-and-shot camera so I am trying to learn each mode!

@ Mishevy: Most are loft conversion. We have a lot of old decay industrial buildings on Lachine Canal to convert.

Thank you for the comments everyone!

I see so you turn old industrial areas into new residential areas?
