Great pictures! What neighborhood/neighborhoods did you photograph? I'm guessing Downtown and Vieux Montreal, at least?

I'm looking forward to more Quebec stuff from you, and hopefully some Montreal neighborhood tours in the future.

I love the shots of the happy bus driver, the Penguins fan, and whatever this pile of deliciousness is:

for all its many frustrations, in the canadian context montreal can come off as an incredibly mature urban form:

I'd love to do some neighbourhood tours in Montreal if I can find the time. This was a weekend getaway for my family, so these are just random snapshots from the different places we went. Mostly Downtown and the old port, but also from Outremont, Mount Royal and along Saint-Hubert

That's poutine with smoked meat on top.

I was struck by the extent of mixed uses, re-uses, and seamless melding of old and new. My last visit to Montreal was 8 years ago and Toronto, with its fairly strict segregation of office districts, commercial strips and pure residential zones had become my frame of reference during that time.

Beautiful stuff as always. I love to see how you take your Hamilton style shooting into bigger cities like Montreal and Toronto. I'd like to see what you'd do with some american cities too, specifically Pittsburgh or NYC. So much to shoot, so little time.

Wow, flar, amazing photography. This is one of my favorite photo threads of any city ever. Between the subject matter and your keen eye, all I can say is:

All fantastic shots though I think even 2:00 in the afternoon is too early for a poutine closeup. Better to eat than look at...
