A Visit to the Old World

I spent a lovely weekend in Quebec City. The main purpose of my trip was to photograph a wedding on Saturday, but I gave myself a couple of extra days so that I could have a leisurely stay in one of the most charming cities outside of Europe.

The Chateau Frontenac, a luxury hotel, sits on a boardwalk alongside the St. Lawrence River:







The Lower Town is full of charming stone buildings and winding streets:











This square (pictured below) was used as a location in the film Saving Private Ryan:

As always, these are just stunning! Really love how you are using Instagram to edit. No matter what format, your photography is so evocative, and so easy to tell that it is your work.

I just adore your photography. I visited Quebec city in 2003 and loved it. You've inspired me to hunt out my old film photos from the trip.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. A fantastic read. I'll certainly be back.
