Playing tourist in my hometown…

My cousin Ben is also a wedding photographer, but he’s based in Michigan, in the States. This summer, he came up to Montreal and I took him around to do some sightseeing. In fact, I discovered some favourite Montreal spots along with him…places I’m ashamed to say I’d never been before, like St-Viateur bagels and Café Olimpico. It was totally worth it to play tourist in my home town!

You can check out Ben’s blog post to see some of his impressions of Montreal, including some shots taken with a rented Fujifilm X-Pro1.

And here are a few fun shots of my own. :)

If you’re visiting Montreal on a summer Sunday afternoon, tam-tams is a must. People gather en masse on Mount Royal to play djembe, dance in the sun, practice their juggling and fight with foam swords…
