For today’s post I have a few more shots taken during my walk around the Old Port of Montreal last Tuesday.
Between the Vieux Port de Montréal and île Sainte-Hélène lies the small outcrop of land called Parc de la Cité du Havre that, as well as being a great place to shoot the Montreal skyline, is also a popular fishing spot.
I noticed a couple of fishermen and found an angle on the Jacques-Cartier pier that enabled the Biosphére and the L’Homme sculpture by Alexander Calder to be in the frame. In post processing I added a pseudo tilt-shift using Topaz Lens Effects to give the image some depth.
Another shot of the fishermen but from a slightly different angle…
A little further west from Parc de la Cité du Havre is Habitat 67 on avenue Pierre-Dupuy that was designed by Moshe Safdie for Expo 67.
Pssst…If you didn’t check it out already, I have a line of products available over on the Montreal in Pictures Café Press store featuring Habitat 67.
An interesting perspective that is possible from the car park on the King Edward Quay is of the Clock Tower behind the Terrasses Bonsecours.
With summer over and winter fast approaching, the marina between Quai Jacques-Cartier and Quai King Edward is now vacated of boats. In the shot below, the building with the coloured glass panes in the background is the Palais de Justice.
The final picture for today is of the King Edward Quay, looking down King Edward Quay street at the side of the Montreal Science Center.
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
