Montréal postcard — Boulevard Saint-Laurent

This spot on Boulevard Saint-Laurent at the railroad tracks is pretty much the center of the Île de Montréal. The underpass where the bike route goes are the train tracks (and the dirt bike trail) that separate the Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie and Plateau neighborhoods. I took this photo on the Plateau side.

I really love the iPhone 6s Plus camera. The DSLRs have stayed bagged up pretty much since I got the new phone. Eventually I’ll bust them out again. But for daily out for a walk shooting, it’s hard to beat the iPhone.

And hey, nice Chevy! There aren’t many lowriders in Montréal.

Longboard at the Big O

One interesting circumstance I’ve added to my lifestyle is longboarding. I took my first longboard push about a month after my 61st birthday. I broke my nose and cracked a rib that day, but that is a story for another time. I’m 8 months in and now that the weather has warmed up, I get out for long push sessions several times a week. I currently have three boards: Loaded Bhangra, Loaded Fattail, and a regular “popsicle” skateboard. The dangerous wooden toy game is on…
