BTW, that building across from McGill Engineering on University is a High School. The Kids are always running around in the courtyard playing and stuff at lunch time.

Sorry, I've only been taking snaps the past week. I embarked upon a tour of Vieux-Montréal but soon discovered that I wasn't really into it. Here's a few that I took before I quit:

Métro Camp-de-Mars




Back of the Old, Old Court House which was replaced by the New Court House which was subsequently replaced by the Totally New Court House(40 years ago).


Champ-de-Mars. Remnants of the fortified wall are still visible. It was torn down at the beginning of the 19th century. The back of Hôtel-de-Ville (City Hall) is on the right. Restoration work is being done on the roof, hence the covered scaffolding.




Place Jacques-Cartier


Hôtel-de-Ville


Château-de-Ramezay (1705) Benjamin Franklin stayed here for 6 weeks in 1776 in an attempt to get Québec to rise with the Americans against the English. Missed opportunity.




Marché Bonsecours








Place Jacques-Cartier. The Middle-Eastern family in the centre of the photo was begging for money in order to send their kid to carpentry school.. or something.


The sign should read "Tourist Poutine".




A restaurant in an alley. It smelled fantastic and reminded me that I was hungry and didn't really want to take any more photos.






Pointe-à-Callière. One of my favourite museums, it was built over archeological finds of the beginnings of the City. The digging is ongoing and the museum continues to branch out underground. There's also a great lookout at the top.












Place d'Armes, Bank of Montréal. The interior is beautiful.


Notre-Dame. If you only have time to visit one place in Montréal this is it. The interior is unbe****inglievably gorgeous. Photos can do it no justice (but I'll try).










To be continued...

Ive never seen snow falling

Wow, a real idyllic winter! I wish we had some snow, instead of rain all the time!

It's true, while some years ago snow was a normal occurrence during wintertime in Ljubljana, it's so rare nowadays (the last 10 years)... it usually snows once or twice during winter and snow usually melts in 2 or 3 days. I see you have no such problem in Canada!

Hey guys, Habfanman was banned shortly before Christmas. It came as a surprise to me, too, but was a decision by the administration for reasons that have nothing to do with his most excellent photography or this photography section.

Too bad... and to think some people that really deserve to be banned are still around...

There is something quite wonderful in viewing a city through the eyes of someone who truly loves it.
