Vieux Port de Montréal (or Old Port of Montreal in English) draws about six million visitors a year.  For most Americans and Canadians from English-speaking provinces and territories, Old Port of Montreal is a quintessential piece of Europe carefully preserved by the Québécois over the years. If you're up to cobble streets with old stone buildings, cozy cafés, delicious crêperies, bakeries selling fresh French croissants and baguettes, sharp gothic spires, look no further - Old Port has it all. But to have the best experience, try to visit it after dark on a week day in May or June, and you'll be amazed how intimate and lovely this place can be.

Today's pictures are a bit different from what you would normally see in my blog. Those who are up to digital photography know the technique as HDR - High Dynamic Range. But frankly speaking, it's just an Adobe Lightroom filter that mimics HDR look, not a real HDR. I'm too lazy to carry a tripod.
But how did I manage to get sharp pictures? I used whatever I could find to immobilize my camera. This includes fences, benches, tables, walkways and traffic cones. At some point I found a cardboard box which I then carried with me for at least one hour. Anything works if you're really determined! Enjoy the pictures.
