Basically, […]

  • Montreal Residency – Day 4

    Wow…what a day yesterday was! I could make 10 blog posts from just a single days shoot! Here are a few. Hard to believe but one of those three blue doors on the right is where we are staying in Montreal! Fabulous. My day always starts by taking the Metro to my days destination. This […]
