“Chinatown Rush” – Montreal

“Chinatown Rush” - Montreal

“The first problem of living is to minimize friction with the crowds that surround you on all sides.”
― Isaac Asimov

I wanted to capture the hustle and bustle of this Montreal intersection with an experimental long exposure. It was interesting to look back on it and see the woman in the foreground moving quickly across the frame, while the car is stopped.

This was also an experiment in light where I was trying to cover the whole spectrum for white to black.

Interestingly, growing up in Toronto, I really would not consider this a ‘rush’. For that, I could set up at Montreal’s Gare Centrale (about 18 million people pass through there every year) at quitting time. Perhaps on another visit?

    Hey there! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog like yours require a large amount of work?
    I’m brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and
    thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Thankyou!

      Thanks for the compliment. I’d say it requires discipline, rather than work. I am an avid photographer and getting new images is not often a challenge. I do need to carve out time to post, but it does not take long. I have found it an excellent way to keep myself creating, even when I’m not particularly inspired.

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing,
    it is rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and
    visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a awesome job with this.

    Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Exceptional Blog!
