Quebec City through the Eye of a Camera


Before embarking on a Canada and New England cruise in September, I was able to spend two nights in the historic town of Quebec City.  I found Quebec City to be a photographers delight, from the historic buildings to the charming street scenes, everything just seemed to call out to me to photograph.

The photo above is the Chateau Frontenac which is located in upper Quebec high above the St. Lawrence river.  We stayed our first night in the hotel that is located within the Chateau Frontenac.  It was a lovely place to stay and a great location in which to take walks from and capture photos of upper Quebec City.

 Upper Quebec City

Here are a couple of scenes from our first evening in Quebec City. 

 The first is the 1640 Bistro where we had dinner and the second is the Chateau lit up in the evening.

Artists Street

One of my favorite places to visit in upper Quebec City is the Rue Du Tresor.  On this street artists hang their wares for all to view and purchase.  You can sometimes see artists at work too.

Lower Quebec City- Street Scenes

I really enjoyed walking the streets of lower Quebec City in the very French portion of the city.  Here are some of the street scenes I was able to capture with my camera.  The streets were charming with every entrance way taking on a different look.  There were still lots of beautiful flowers and greenery in the doorways in late September.  


 The building to the left has a mural painted on it depicting the four seasons of the year in Quebec City.  There were many small shops, restaurants, and art galleries throughout the area.

I have also written an article on my trips to Quebec City you can link to it here http://mbgphoto.hubpages.com/hub/quebec-city-2

  1. What a fascinating tour of Quebec you have captured so beautifully in photographs. I've never visited -- and would love to someday, as I've been told a paternal ancestor of mine came from Quebec.
