      Thank you Ernie. I thought Montreal streets lent themselves to this style of image making. I’d love to go back and do more! Chris

    Your images of Montreal were a trip down memory lane for me…particulrily Westmount as I lived several blocks away from the park & library !

    Wow Chris!! Than you for giving us a glimpse into your freedom of expression. I love the artistic tree images. Your rainy street images help remind us that there is brilliance in wet grey weather.
    Your vision is a gift to us all.
    Much Love and Light on your journeys ahead. 💖☀️

    Hi Chris,

    Just a note to let you know I love your incredible Montreal images, and well remember how much you cheered for their hockey team. I”m so glad you and Rita actually got to go to a game! And to be allowed inside your old home, that is beyond words. Montreal is such a beautiful city, I’m fortunate enough to have been there several years ago, and Ontario fall foliage is so spectacular even the rain can’t diminish it..

    Sending you both all the best for the upcoming Christmas season. We won’t be making it to the Cariboo this winter, but hopefully in the spring. Would love to catch up in person one of these days..

      Great to hear from you Joyce and thanks for your comments. Montreal is a special place and presenting and teaching there was a very special experience. Get in touch when you come to the Cariboo! Merry Christmas to you both. Chris

    So love the impressionist brush you took of Sherbrooke St, and environs. It also reminded me of my grandmother’s St. on Berri in the Rivoli district, with trees arching over the St. You gave the city a feeling soul. Thank you so much.

      Thank you so much Nicole. Giving my favourite city “a feeling soul” are powerful and meaningful words to me. I appreciate you sharing your feelings and thoughts. Chris

    Enjoyed your presentation at Trillium in Burlington, Ontario. Wish I had know about the opportunity to attend the workshop. Seemed to be a best kept secret.

    1. chris says: Reply

      Happy to hear you enjoyed the presentation, but sorry you didn’t hear about the workshop. I’m not sure how that worked. Chris

  15. I truly enjoyed your presentation at The Montreal Camera Club. I am sorry I wasn’t able;e to attend the workshops you hosted. I have seen the results from some of the attendees and you have certainly inspired them as well as myself. Your Montreal images are just beautiful.

    1. chris says: Reply

      Thank you John. The whole Montreal experience was a wonderful one. Too bad about not getting on the workshop but happy to hear that you as well as the others are inspired! Hopefully I’ll get to do another one sometime soon. Best wishes. Chris

    Loved your Marcil st. photo .We owned two different homes back in the 70,s on Marcil. Guess you did not have sufficient time during your Beloeil visit ,to call on us in Mont St Hilaire., as proposed. Hopefully, on another occasion. .Recently, I was reviewing your father.s book :”QUEBEC”,co authored with Dr.Tardif ,in 1973. The photo of our mountain must have been shot from your front yard.. Season s Greetings to you and your wife.

    1. chris says: Reply

      Hello Pierre. I thought of you both while visiting Beloeil, hoping it would work out to drop by, but we couldn’t make it happen. Rita and I would have loved to visit; hopefully there will be another opportunity in the near future. I just revisited the book QUEBEC and the sister book MONTREAL. I remember Dr. Tardiff. Maybe I will return to Montreal and do more photography there. That would bring me back full circle to the place of my birth. Thank you for writing Pierre. Hello to your wife and happy memories of Marcil St! Chris

    Loved the impressionist pics…reminded me a little of impressionist depictions of Paris in that era…I love all your work, so much heart and soul and gorgeous technique, especially the Cariboo photos. I lived in 100 Mile House for many years in the late 60s and 70s and explored a lot of that stunning territory during my years working at the 100 Mile House Free Press…what apps do you use to create the impressionist works? I’m asking because I would like to explore that area of expression in my work. Wish you and yours a wonderful and joyful Christmas.

    1. chris says: Reply

      Thank you for your comments and thoughts. Regarding technique, I do all my work in-canera. I use a Canon 5D MKIII. No special Apps. Minimal post editing. Every image is based on either a single or multiple exposure combined with endless combinations of camera movement. The fun part is the pleasure of visual discovery!! Chris
