Old Montreal random shots

For today’s post I have a few random shots taken last night from my visit to Old Montreal.

It was overcast around dusk, so no glorious sunset I’m affraid, which was a shame since I decided to go to Champ-de-Mars to shoot the skyline.

Next stop, rue Saint-Paul. It was after 5pm and the street was almost deserted, even cars were infrequent, allowing me to take a quick shot from the centre of the road looking west from Place Jacques-Cartier.

On the corner of rue Saint-Vincent and rue Saint-Paul is the French cuisine and wild game restaurant, La Sauvagine. Another restaurant I have yet to try, but the menu looks tempting.

I couldn’t visit Old Montreal without making a quick stop at Place d’Armes. It wasn’t long ago that I was here, so I only took the one shot from the entrance of the Notre-Dame Basilica.

At the bottom of Côte de la Place d’Armes at the intersection with rue Saint Antoine I paused to take a shot looking back towards Place d’Armes and the basilica. I waited for a few cars to drive up the street so as to get some car light trails in the shot. I quite like this angle and one I have not shot from before.

The building on the left is the Place d’Armes Hotel. Built in 1870, it was formerly known as the Life Association of Scotland building.
