Holga Montreal -Double Exposures

On a recent visit to Montreal I took so many photos that this is just of first of several photo essays about this wonderful city. Today I'm putting up a few double exposures that caught my attention as I looked through my pictures. We've visited Montreal for many years and usually stay in the same hotel near Chinatown so that's where many of the photos were taken. I took these photos early on a Saturday morning as there is little traffic then so I could stand in the middle of the street and take pictures without being run over.

The arch over Blvd St Laurant on the corner of Rene Levesque is the entry way to Montreal's Chinatown.

Offices and apartments adjacent to Chinatown.

Old buildings in the block east of Chinatown are being refurbished. This one is pretty fancy.

As are buildings just to the west of Chinatown. Not fancy just refurbished.

Hi sbk --

Sometime, could you do a photo essay of (some of) the places in Montreal that Kathy Reichs writes about in her Temperance Brennan books pretty please? :b

Yes, I will. I'm not sure how many appropriate photos I have as I didn't think of this great idea when I was there . If I don't have the 'right' photos it's an excuse for another trip! Montreal is the closest big city to us-it's 3 1/2 hours from our house to downtown (centre-ville) Montreal.
