Photography 101 – Day 7 – A View of Old Montreal


There are few places in the world like Montreal in Canada. The mix of the old world European architecture with the modern buildings of more modern times. I had the time of my life in Montreal between the food, restaurants, old Montreal, the St. Lawrence River, shopping down St. Catherine’s Street, and Musee des Beaux Arts. There is so much to see and do in Montreal. The best part of Montreal is immersing yourself in french Canadian culture whatever you do. They do not speak true Parisian french there but it is interesting to hear the mix of English and French while one is taking the Metro. Here are two of the fantastic landmarks my brother and I took in there:

    1. Hmm… Well a wonderful area of the city is old Montreal which dates back hundreds of years. There are lovely shops, restaurants etc down there including this whole big area of restaurants. When my brother and I went down their we had poutine at a restaurant. We got dishes of fries covered in mozzarella cheese and gravy. We took a boat at the lowest point of old Montreal and toured along the St Lawrence. There are these cube like residences at one point that were residences for the Olympics when it was held there.
      I’m not sure exactly what you want to know but in Quebec City there was this huge battle between the English and the French called the battle of the plains of Abraham and the French won out so they got to keep lower Canada Quebec and the English settled back up in Upper Canada, in Ottawa.
