Québec City

We recently returned from Quebec City, which is celebrating its 400th anniversary this year. For seven days we strolled the streets of the old city, discovering its many wonders and meeting its polite, hard-working, and hospitable citizens. Quebecers have a unique history and culture dating back to the city’s founding by Samuel de Champlain in 1608. Much of the original French-style buildings still exist in the old city, and the French language and culture still prevail. The city is a delight for any Francophile. As an experiment, I left my pro gear at home and took along only a compact point and shoot (Canon G9) that I operated on manual.

    carol curland - Loved your pictures, We just returned from Quebec City Tuesday. I feel in love with the haunting sound of the saxophone player. I didn’t buy his cd but wish I had. Looking at your pictures you captured him on film. Do you know his name ?
