The old town of Quebec

The Old Town of Quebec

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.

On the journey into Quebec City from where we’re staying it’s impossible not to miss the plumes of steam (and smoke?) rising from a number of buildings, seemingly right in the middle of an urban area.

According to our guide the buildings contain a cigarette factory and a paper recycling plant. Up close one of the buildings looked like it was on fire as white steam/smoke escaped from dozens of chimneys on the roof and possibly at the side of the building.

In the foreground are parts of the old City Wall.

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.

A pigeon in Cork, somewhere.

I’m in Quebec. It’s raining a bit but hopefully I’ll get out this morning for a look around. Luggage still hasn’t arrived, but someone rang at 2am to say it would be delivered here. Yay.

Corned Brisket

Corned Brisket

One of the many butchers in The English Market. I’ve had brisket a few times, but only ever in the USA. Doesn’t seem to be a popular cut of meat here.

Taken on the World Wide Photowalk on July 18th.
