2010-05-11 -- Quebec City

A quarter day of wandering around, followed by a full day of meetings to discuss how to cross the Atlantic and avoid the Eyjafjallajokull ash plume.

A good start to the trip! A tilt/shift of Quebec City overlooking the river.

Judy contemplating.... I was just playing with the lens, but liked the photo.

Another tilt/shift, this time trying to capute the ship. Seems to not give such great results when the object is far away.

And still another tilt/shift, this one worked great. I like this picture. This is the Canadian Coast Guard (I'm guessing) "Amundsen".

The Chateau Frontenac....at least half of it. The previous three pictures were looking over the green railing on the right side.

An Inuksuk 'sculpture'. The inscription reads:

l'inuksuk evoque
une forme humaine et sert
de repere pour les habitants
du grand nord quebecois

There is another, much larger, 'sculpture' tomorrow.

The Quebec Parlament building is covered with statues in various poses. I liked these. "Where the heck are they, they're late!!" "Lo! There they are!"

Quebec City.

Quebec City. One can hope these are actually old buildings, and not just the same plastic reproductions of old buildings we get in the States.

Red flowers in front of a waterfall sculpture in front of....well, I don't really know what the green roof building is. It had a bunch of "Quebec" stickers on it, so probably a government building. Anyway, pretty flowers.

I didn't bother reading what this was. Each chair had a phrase on it (in French). Not sure I like the framing, but too late now.

The front of Chateau Frontenac at night. I shot this with just a monopod, after forgetting that I was charging the battery and left it in the room.

More or less the same view as the first photo on the page. OK, same spot, I'm looking more to the right here.
