Celebrating Montréal, Part 2

“I love every blessed centimeter of Montreal.”
- Irving Layton, Poet (1912-2006),
 speaking about his hometown.

Sharing my enjoyment of Montréal continues. The photos this time reflect a wider vision of Montréal – more of its streetscapes and less of its art, except that so much of Montréal is a work of art. To say that I enjoyed wandering around this city and breathing in its energy would be an understatement.

I hope you enjoy these random souvenirs from my wanderings.
