Writing with Light

Old Montreal at Night

Yes I know it’s been quite sometime since I’ve published a post. First of all thank you to all who emailed me with concern, asking where I am and if everything is ok. Yes all is well. I’ve taken on a new expanded role at work and have been doing some business travel which has taken up a lot of my time. As much as I hated to do it, my photography and my blog had to take a back seat for a couple of months while I emeressed myself in my new role at work and learned the ropes.

It’s interesting though the guilt I felt the first couple of weeks of not blogging. I would arrive home fully expecting to sit down at the computer in the evening and crank out a post but then there was other “work” to finish and before I knew it midnight rolled around. I finally decided that a half-hearted post wouldn’t do and I would give myself permission to take some time off from blogging.

So here I am back again. I can’t promise I’ll be as regular with my posts as I had been, at least not for the short-term but I will certainly try to post semi-regularly.

I also haven’t done much travelling this summer but we did manage to go to Montreal for a weekend to visit family. Family visits are great but it’s always a bit tough to eek out some time for photography. We did manage to go out to Old Montreal one evening and I did bring my tripod and gear with me for a few shots.

Old Montreal is beautiful at any time of year but in the summer its bustling with people. Street performers are out, people are walking through the cobblestone roads or sitting at an outdoor Cafe enjoying the evening. Of course at night the star attraction is the lights which brings the buildings and streets to life.

    Beautiful shot Edith. There was a reason that I didn’t start a blog before early retirement and it is for the reasons you stated. Glad to see you are back if only in a limited role.
