MTL TTL 09: Down by the Locks (Lachine Canal)

I made a short trip down to Lachine Canal last weekend. It is a real serene place with a calming feel to it. A friend even described it as “the closest feeling of California in Montreal”.

Here is my photographic experience of the beautiful Lachine Canal:

This was a great experience and one I plan on having again soon. I urge you all to visit the Lachine canal and trust me, you will want to return time and time again!


MTL TTL (Montreal Through The Lens)


Montreal is a vibrant and picturesque city that I have known for a long time. When walking in the streets of this historic city, one can’t help notice the many different photographic oppurtunities Montreal provides.

In my new series, Montreal Through The Lens (MTL TTL), I will try and reproduce the fantastic views of this urban jungle and the setting it provides in each of its 4 seasons.

Come and join me through this web blog and gaze at the great city of Montreal as seen through my camera lens.
