Montréal Noir

Monochrome shooting + horrible winter weather= Montreal's best impression of Gotham City.

I find a strange comfort that at least part of North America is escaping the upside down weather.

Winter in Montreal isn't that horrible and you better escape now if you don't like it because it isn't over for 3 months or more. Nice moody B&W shots!

Actually, this winter in Montreal has had some pretty horrible weather so far- lots of rain, freezing rain and wild temperature variations from day to day. Makes for lots of grey, slush and ice, I long for a classic Montreal snow winter!

I love the black and white version of my hometown.

Didn't you notice on the plane when you started talking, eventually I started reading the vomit bag?
