Default Quebec City

We were vacationing for three days in June and looking down upon this scene that reminded us of a miniature village. The photos reflect that a bit.

The posting did not work as expected. I will try later.

Hi,

Anytime you need pointers for Quebec City.... Just ask, I lived there for a while.

Here are a few from the Quebec City "miniature" view that I described. I have a lot more, but this series interested me. All were with the E-M1 and 40-150 lens.

Three views of waiting for (art) patrons






Viewing the paintings at the Maison Milot (1689)


A steep climb roof



Geomania


A living mural


In the middle of it all, oblivious


What a scene down there!

cool shots of a very neat city, I really like the waiting for art patron's sequence, looks like you were shooting from the above area at the lower section where the cruise ships dock?

Wife and I went there for a long weekend a few years back and really enjoyed it, except the part where my debit card number was stolen and then recreated in France, apparently a common thing so note to others.

Very well done. Exposure, detail, color, perspective. It's all there.

Yes, basically, that is the location. Sorry to hear about your debit card problems!

We had beautiful weather there, and the sights are really marvelous.

The food is pretty damn good too from what I remember, well except that they serve horse which is a bit of a culture shock for people who've grown up around horses for show, sport, work and transport.

I agree. Well done. A really nice selection of shots, and I agree that it has a European feel to the scenes.
