My coop term in Montreal in fall of 2017 was probably four of the best months of my life. I loved the city; it became my favorite city by far, and nothing I’ve experienced comes close to it. I’ve never seen a city more beautiful, cultural and alive. It’s hard to imagine, but until you experience it, you can’t quite grasp the vibe the city puts out. I could go on for hours about everything I did and loved in the city, but instead I’ll let some pictures do the talking and try to highlight my time in the city. I haven’t been around much in the world, but I can’t see a day where I wouldn’t love to return, and potentially make it my home. It was nothing short of remarkable.
Most of these photos are from my phone, which explains the low quality. However, the emotions and memories evoked going through these remain the same despite the quality. These photos don’t cover the events and outings I had in the city – maybe I’ll save those for another post. If you haven’t been to the city, you simply must, there really is nothing quite like it.
I went out all day yesterday with my friend and explored Toronto’s Nuit Blanche, a weekend of city-wide art exhibitions. It was a great way to see the city, and the art was certainly interesting. I only wish that it was held a little earlier, but I guess part of the fun is that it takes place during the night. Most of these photos are actually just cool shots of Toronto, but nevertheless I can’t think of a better time to put them up. Hope you enjoy!
By the way, I haven’t posted regularly for quite a while, and it’s going to be this way for a bit longer. I’m putting all my efforts into another project right now, so this is going on the backburner for a month or so. Pretty much all the content for the next few weeks will be hockey related, with the NHL season starting soon. I hope to have the aforementioned project done soon, and I’m looking forward to sharing it with you!
I visited ROM today with a couple of friends, and had a great time. The couple hours we spent really didn’t do it justice; I feel I could spend days there and still find new interesting things. All the exhibits were excellent, and the architecture itself is something special. I highly recommend visiting – it’s extremely affordable, and very worth the time. Unfortunately I used my phone for these photos, so the quality is fairly low. Nonetheless, I hope it gets you to experience it yourself – and I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
I was going through my phone and realized I hadn’t posted these yet. They were taken from my phone, but they turned out much better than the ones I took a year ago with a camera (I was at that time unaware of the “fireworks mode”).
These are also actually the only photos I took of the event, because as a friend correctly advised me, it was better to take the event in live than worry about getting the perfect shot. Nothing but good memories looking at these. I hope you like them as much as I do!
Reviving the photography section of this blog because I want to post, but I don’t know what to post. And until such a time where I figure out what that is, I hope this will suffice.
It’s only a matter of time before I make a gallery of shots I’ve taken in Toronto. It certainly is a majestic city. Hope you enjoy!
I’m closing out photo week with an old photo from a trip to Banff. It doesn’t look like much, but there’s just a serene beauty of nature that gets me when I go over some shots like this. I think I’ll miss this in the years to come.
I’ll try hard to have a week of thoughts starting tomorrow. It’ll be a lot of writing, and I’ll have to push myself to make it a reality. Hope you check it out!
Day 5, and what do you know, it’s more flowers. There isn’t much else worth taking photos of in the vicinity that I’m not too lazy to venture into, or the phone’s camera isn’t good enough to do it justice. This one is a tad unfocussed, but I think it’s alright just the same. Hope you feel the same way!
