I spent a little time today doing some Lightroom cataloging of my images. I ran across this one from our 10,000 mile journey back in 2010. We LOVED Quebec City so we spent a lot of time walking the streets–and I took a lot of photos. Blue doors were not uncommon in the old part of the city. I’m not sure why the blue, but they looked cool.

I recently got a copy of Lightroom 3 for a ridiculously cheap price. I know version 4 just came out, but having never used the program I figured I’d go with the bargain and see if I like it. So far so good! While cataloging images from our 2010 trans-Canada train trip, I ran across this image and decided to try some processing on it in Lightroom. I’d already installed Nik Silver Efex Pro (SEP 1, because SEP 2 doesn’t run on my computer?!?) so it was fairly easy to do the same black and white conversion steps I normally do with SEP 1 in Photoshop. Voilà!

This image was taken from our room at Hotel Belley in Québec City in early November 2010. We were holed up during the only heavy rain day we encountered during our entire 10,000 mile train trip from San Francisco to Vancouver, BC to Halifax, NS and back. Revisiting this image with the Fleurdelisé flying in the stiff wind made me feel nostalgic for the days we spent in la belle province.

It’s Friday and I’m beat, so anything goes…. Here’s a shot I took during our 10,000 Mile trip of a mixed modern/old view of Quebec City. The structure with the aged copper roof is the Service Canada which is just across the street from the Gare du Palais (a VERY nice train station where we whiled away quite a few hours).
There’s very little processing on the image, though I did crop a bit to tighten the frame.

I dipped back into the 10,000 miles folders for today’s shot. This is an intimate street scene in Vieux-Québec. The primary colors are true to the original image.
