Today was my first real day of exploring the city. I felt rather uneasy photographing with so many people around; using a camera other than a smartphone meant people were always staring at me. There was also the issue of photographing buildings; the ones I found most interesting were private ones, usually row-buildings. Without permission I felt I was intruding. All in all, a very different experience from photographing a remote landscape!
I’m going to try and limit my blog posts to 5 images. The days are so full, it’s hard to keep up!
The day started off descending an escalator to the Metro. We go everywhere on the Metro. It’s fabulous.
While walking along Saint Catherine Street we came across an outdoor art installation; we wandered in.
It was extremely creative and humorous.
Later in the day I found myself on Sherbrooke Street. I love the old buildings and the architecture of Montreal.
I find that expressing these old buildings in a more expressionist style of photography seems to capture the essence of Montreal.
I wonder where I’ll end up tomorrow? This is exciting!
