Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light

Antique Store

Posting thing just in time for this weeks challenge. An antique stores’ use of outside light, highlights the vintage glass section beautifully. So much, I ended buying one.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Habit

Cigarette

I could have chosen other habits to share: those that make me smile or laugh, some make me cringe and others I would not dare tell, but instead here’s one that makes me sad. My father passed away from lung cancer sometime ago, and here I am now looking at the one I love, doing this habit too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

Chocolates

I thought all day about this weeks challenge. What hue is me? It could be blue”berry”, lavender, strawberry red or green “tea”; but looking at what’s left at the Compartes’ Jonathan’s Signature Truffle box, it was in front of me the whole time. Chocolate!

The Sea

Infinite sea of _________________________.

There are photographs that make me think, laugh, angry, hurt, sad, etc. This one for me is “hope”. What’s yours?

Postcard Series: I Remember Montreal

I remember Montreal like it was just yesterday. The sounds of the birds chirping at the Jardin Botanique, the cars driving around in circles, the blueish hue in the late afternoon and the numerous festivals and events. The wonderful treat called Poutine made of french fries, gravy and cheese curds. The streets, the art in them, the empty wine bottle next to it but most of all, the people I meet along the way.

I will be back next year, and will remember it again like it was just yesterday.

Postcard Series: Je t’aime Montreal

If I speak French, I will live a third of the year in Montreal. Alive and peaceful, day or night, rain or shine; this city is filled with culture and arts, modern and old, sports and fashion. I don’t care if all the signs aren’t in English or the city seems to be always in construction, because everything else is “tres bien”.

Staying overnight, go the Biosphere for $12 to get a 360 degree view of Montreal, walk around Old Montreal, and check out the Basilica at night for a $9 lightshow for some history. Enjoy the rest of the night dining in many of the excellent restaurants around. My choice this month, Holder for goat cheese tart, mussels and of course, wine. Sante!

Got a late flight the next day? Rent a Bixi for the real Montreal experience. $7/24 hour access.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

Inside

Am I inside looking at the tower beyond? Or is it me wishing I was outside? My post for this week’s challenge taken from “inside” Montreal’s Environment Museum, the Biosphere. Entrance: $12.00/adult and on a good day, go all the way to the top for a great view of Montreal and it’s beautiful surrounding.
