Here are two more shots of my favorite city.

I cropped it wide to show the American Embassy in the left hand side.

And, so you won't think I spent all my time near the Chateau Frontenac, the house with the smallest facade in North America. This is just north of the Chateau. It's hard to photograph and show it. But, the black gate in front of center building is about 6 feet wide and the entrance to that house.

Thanks, Sim. We had perfect weather when we were there. I couldn't believe it. The weather forecast had been rain for the entire four days we were there.

Thanks for looking. Patty

The first shot is really excellent. The colors in the building are dramatic and the sky is perfect, and what really makes the shot is the pathway between benches and railing that draws the eye straight as an arrow into the photograph where it's rewarded with a big, soft, buttermilk cloud. This is the kind of photograph that makes me want to put up with air travel.

Great shots. Quebec is great for photography and you captured some great scenes.

Beautiful shots, Patty. The second shows some very creative architecture.

Patty,

We spent a short time in Quebec and Montreal but enjoyed it thoroughly.

The colors are so vibrant in the first shot. Thanks for sharing.

Aloha
