I’m Still Standing

Im Still Standing

It’s wonderful how some of the old buildings in Cork are preserved while all around them their neighbours are demolished and shiny new edifices rise. This one is of course on Emmett Place.

Red roses in my father-in-law’s garden, I think. This was shot way back in August but I’m fairly sure of the location.

A whale of a time in Quebec

A whale of a time in Quebec

A street in Quebec is filled with drawings and messages hanging down from wires above our heads.

Made me think of the “Fail Whale” when I saw this one. Sad.

Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré

Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré

The Saint Anne-de-Beaupré Basilica in Quebec is an imposing but beautiful building. It’s surrounded by flat river side countryside and low lying buildings so it really stands out.

Got lots more photos from inside, hopefully to be posted over the next few days.

Quebec city recently celebrated it’s 400th birthday, making it one of the oldest cities in North America! Here’s part of the tourist area of the older part of town. A lovely walk through a beautiful area.

Night Over Quebec

Night Over Quebec

Night falls over Quebec as we finish our tour and photowalk around the city. ISO 1600 came in very useful as the sky got darker! Pictured here are a few of the buildings just outside the old city walls. I think the Hilton is the building on the right.
