Looks like we’ve now made it one week. It’s starting to get a little harder now, all the ideas I had in my head have been done or can’t be done on the day I need a photo. This is where things get fun.

Today was a beautiful, warm and sunny day in Montreal. Went on a walk with Michael and snapped a few pics. Here’s my fav. New water feature at Places Des Art.

Any suggestions for photos are very welcome.

In the Place Des Art building they often do these public performances. Today just happened to be Salsa lessons. Here are these cute little kids trying to follow along with the instructor.

Yup, there is a bonus today too. This is a self portrait in the quad of the UQAM Sciences Campas on a beautiful sunny day. The light is a little harsh and a reflector on the left would have made it better, but I was alone and this was taken on a timer with the camera sitting on a trash can.

Spring in Montreal

Hey all,

As chance would have it, I’ve found myself in Montreal during the spring. In fact, I’m here for 3 months and have already been here a month and a half. Some of you know why others don’t but it will al be revealed soon. Suffice it to say it’s an exiting time and spring in Montreal is waking this city up.

Last weekend I was back inToronto and it was my birthday, as an amazing present I got a new camera. A Nikon D5100, I’ve always wanted a DSLR camera but knew that if I did, I’d fall down the rabbit hole of expensive camera gear. So up until now I’ve avoided it. But with the baby on the way (BTW, did you know that we have a baby on the way? we do, July 7, 2012.) I got the camera to take pictures of the baby.

This past weekend I went on a couple photo outings, here are some of my fav pics from around Montreal this weekend.

I’m going to start with a photo of me. I didn’t take this but it’s still a good photo.

Found myself in a Montreal student protest for a few hours and great place to practice taking photos.
