All along the Lachine Canal
In this beautiful, sunny and crisp autumn afternoon, I went shooting along the Lachine Canal, a waterway crossing the center southwest of Montreal lined with either old industrial sites or brand-new condominium complexes. A bike path runs along both sides of the Canal making it a very pleasant walk. We started next to an abandoned industrial compound, traversed under the Canal through the St-Rémi tunnel, currently closed for road work, walked on the South side to a set of locks where we could cross back to the North side. Vis-à-vis the locks, there lies the St-Ambroise brewery waiting for weary would-be photographers. Unfortunately, its terrace was closed and we had to make do with pub fare closer to the Atwater market.
I took the opportunity to try different techniques to obtain a variety of images. The descriptions are underneath the pictures.
