Project 365 – Day 191/192: Shots of the day from Québec City

July 9 and 10

Just returned from a short 2 day trip to Québec City and trying to go through all the pictures I ended up taking…a lot of culling needed ;-)

To keep up with the 365 project I wanted to at least post the photo’s of the day from yesterday and today and will follow up later in the week with a full post with more pics from my little trip up North.

The image for yesterday was of a helicopter parked in a field at a friends home on Ile d’Orleans just outside of Québec City. Unfortunately the big toy belongs to the neighbor and I didn’t get to go up in it :-(

Today’s shot is of the famed Chateau Frontenac hotel standing majestically at the end of the Dufferin Terrace in Québec City.

I’m off to Ottawa tomorrow on a day trip, but hopefully by the end of the week will get caught up going through all the images.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.

    Enjoy your trip to Ottawa. If you like boats, you might want to consider checking out all the paddling activities that go on at Mooney’s Bay (off the canal) or at the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club (in Rockcliffe Park). Another great place to shoot pics aside from the usual sites (Parliament, Chateau Laurier, Byward Market, etc) is the National Gallery of Canada, which was designed by Moshe Safdie of Habitat ’67 fame. It’s a gorgeous glass building with beautiful geometry and unbeatable natural light and views.

      Thanks for the tips. Unfortunately I played the dumb tourist and stuck to all the obvious attractions. Being my first visit and a relatively new Canadian Citizen, I felt obliged to go check out Parliament. We only got to see the outside of the National Gallery – amazing architecture like you say. Hope to not leave it another 13 years before my next visit :-)
