Summer Vacation

My stepdaughter was here visiting us for 12 days so the whole family went to St-Sauveur for a week. It rained just about everyday but we did manage to have a good time anyway. Here are a few photos from her visit and our vacation.


What is summer without watermelon? My nephew knows how to enjoy it.

Tips, Tricks, and Challenges. Challenge #3

For this challange we had to shoot a rural scene, an urban scene and a shot you would put in a tourist guide for your region. The bonus for this challange is a statue.

This is a rural shot from Vignoble de l'Orpailleur, a winerie about 30 min. from my house.

My urban shot is at the Toronto airport.

I have two tourist guide shots. I took these a while back but thought they were appropriate for this challange. I took these in the Old Port of Montreal where I work. I can always find something to shoot during my lunch breaks.

Statue of Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve, founder of Montreal.

I don't really have any great tips but trying to remember the rule of thirds when shooting scenery has helped me alot.
