Rue Saint-Charles

If I think Main Street, Quebec, this is the stereotypical streetscape that pops into my mind — a bank, a couple of cafés and restaurants, a liquor store … and, of course, a church. This is Rue Saint-Charles in the Old Longueuil neighbourhood near Montreal. Snapped on a wander back in February.

Larme

This large mural in comic book style brightens up a parking lot along Boul. Saint-Laurent in Montreal. (Certainly helped during the winter, when I snapped this photo on my last visit to the city.)
