Looking skyward on rue Cathcart

Most weekday mornings I walk along rue Cathcart that lies between rue Mansfield and Place Phillips. For a while I’ve been meaning to take some shots looking upward on the stretch of street next to Place Ville Marie. A week last Friday (May 2) I had my camera with me and so took the opportunity to get a few shots.

I particularly like the juxtaposition of the glass façade of #5 Place Ville Marie and the stone of the adjacent buildings.

For the above shot, I was standing at the entrance to Palace Alley which provides a nice leading view toward 1501 McGill College tower and another juxtaposed image.

There was a nice reflection of the 1501 McGill College tower in the windows of #3 Place Ville-Marie, with the taller #1 Place Ville-Marie reaching upward behind. I added some blur using Topaz Lens Effects to draw attention to the reflection.

My 2nd Montreal Gazette #mtlfriday feature

Every Thursday the Montreal Gazette posts a challenge on Instagram with 1 image being selected to be featured in the Saturday’s newspaper print edition. Last week the subject was Food Trucks and 1 of my images (I posted three) was selected as the winner 🙂

This was my second image to be featured, the first being back in March when the challenge was clouds and my shot of the biospère was selected.

I try to enter an image most weeks as it often provides great inspiration for finding a different subject to shoot, so hopefully I’ll have more successful entries in the future. If you want to follow me on Instagram, my handle is @mtlinpictures.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
