Sorry for the silence – work and a long weekend conspired to divert my attention. On the plus side, the long weekend was photographically productive (Montreal knows how to cram a visually interesting festival or three into a weekend!), so I have a lot of pictures to share. This was from Carifiesta, a festival of Caribbean culture culminating in a street parade through the city centre. I didn’t even know it was on, just happened to wander across the waiting crowds and decided it was worth sticking around to see what happened. Turned out to be a good decision, the parade was a lot of fun to watch and photograph!
Repost Wednesday! In this picture of Rideau Canal, Ottawa, the red glow of the sky – caused by the city lights reflecting off the low-hanging clouds – and the futuristic curve and lighting of the footbridge gave the scene a futuristic but almost post-apocalyptic feeling.
Ahoy, me hearties! It’s Repost Wednesday! A hunt through the archives didn’t turn up anything sufficiently nautical to honour International Talk Like a Pirate Day, so I went with a picture of the Canadian Parliament instead- politicians, pirates, it’s all the same, right?
When I started Journey Photographic, I spent the first few weeks uploading my favourite pictures. I though I might beg your indulgence and occasionally re-feature some of these pictures from these early days, now that there are a few more people reading this blog! Clicking on the picture will take you to the original post.
And for those of you who have been here since the beginning – thanks very much for your ongoing support, and I hope you don’t mind seeing a few of these pictures twice!
