Default On the way to the office...NOT 56k friendly

I brought my camera with me today so that I could snap a few shots of what I see once I get off the train and start my 10 minute walk to the office in downtown Montréal. If you haven't had the chance to visit, Montréal is a beautiful city and very lively in the summer.

Here goes;

The first thing I pass is the Bell Centre where the Montréal Canadians play hockey;



Another angle;



Next I'll pass the building at 1000 de la Gauchetiere;



Very interesting architecture;



Another angle;



And the last one;



Moving down the road, Windsor Station which is the central train station;



A wider angle;



Next up is an interesting mix of buildings;



IBM building on the left, Marriott hotel beside and Windsor Station in front;



The IBM Building;



Another interesting mix;



The Sunlife Insurance Building on the right, one of the oldest buildings in Montréal;



A different shot;



And one more;



More stuff on the way - Mountain Street;



A famous hotel for John Lennon;



Getting closer to the office;



I'm on the 31st floor, second from the top of the triangular topped building;



Looking north on McGill College Avenue, past McGill University at the top with the Royal Victoria Hospital (Victorian Buildings) perched at the side of Mont Royal;



Looking across the street;



Back down the street to the south;



Looking north again from further back;



Looking out the office window to the north;



My line of sight while posting to BC during the day, that'* the 1976 Olympic Stadium in the background;



I hope you enjoyed your tour!!

Cheers,

Yep..Montreal is a beautiful city. Its got a great combination of new and historic architecture. A fine city with a great reputation with younger Canadians.

Havent been in a LONG time tho. Possibly sometime in Summer 05, but those pics are TOP notch.

These are just the baby versions!! They're less than 1/4 of the size they came out the camera and only 30% of the origianl quality.

Didn't even use the 10x optical zoom

Great pictures Foghorn I was there 2 years ago for a hockey game against Ottawa. Loved the new Arena. Old Montreal was my favorite, especially the narrow streets.
